Late wild pitch lifts Yankees to third straight win in Baltimore

Despite David Robertson blowing a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Yankees were able to bounce back quickly and win tonight's game over the Orioles, 6-5. With this win, the Yankees will leave Baltimore on a three game winning streak, and are now just one game behind the Rays in the Wild Card standings. 

The Yankees scored most of their runs early on this one, as Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the second inning and Wells hit a two-run single in the third. In the seventh, Curtis Granderson hit what looked like the dagger when he hit a high fly ball over the right field fence. But, since Robertson gave up three runs in bottom of the eighth inning, it wasn't. Thankfully in the top half of the ninth the Bombers would re-take the lead after Jim Johnson threw a wild pitch, but it was still frustrating. Robertson's gotta do better. 

Anyway, this series was fun. Now on to Boston.
