Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Eduardo Nunez returned to the majors as one of
the Yankees' September callups and keyed a three-run seventh inning, helping
New York to a 4-3 victory over Baltimore.
After Nunez's two-out base hit made it a one-run game and Ichiro Suzuki walked
to load the bases, Derek Jeter drew another free pass to force home the tying
run. J.J. Hardy then mishandled Nick Swisher's bouncer to short, allowing
Nunez to cross the plate with the go-ahead run.
David Robertson threw a perfect eighth and Rafael Soriano followed with a
1-2-3 ninth to secure his 35th save, as the Yankees halted a two-game skid and
increased their AL East lead over Baltimore to three games. The Orioles had
trimmed the margin on Friday with a 6-1 win in the opener of the three-game
Matt Wieters homered for Baltimore, which had won six of seven entering the
contest and also had won its previous 13 one-run games.
