NEW YORK YANKEES
Final Score: New York 5, Baltimore 3
Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) – John Ryan Murphy went 3-for-4 and delivered a key two-run double that helped the New York Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. After Murphy’s extra-base hit off the just-reinstated Brian Matusz snapped a 3-3 tie in the fifth inning, three New York relievers combined for 4 1/3 hitless frames to enable the Yankees to halt a three-game skid and avoid a series sweep from their AL East rivals. Chasen Shreve (3-1) was credited with the win after retiring all four batters he faced after taking over for Adam Warren, who struck out five in 4 2/3 innings but was reached for three runs. Mark Teixeira added an RBI double for New York. The Orioles had a season-high seven-game win streak end after starter Mike Wright (2-2) was tagged for five runs in only four-plus innings of work. Baltimore finished with just six hits, including a two-run single from Nolan Reimold and an RBI double from Caleb Joseph.
NEW YORK METS
Final Score: New York 10, Atlanta 8
Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – Juan Lagares’ three-run homer in the sixth helped the New York Mets overcome a five-run deficit and give them a 10-8 win over the Atlanta Braves in the finale of a three-game set. Dillon Gee returned from the bereavement list and put the Mets in an early hole, allowing eight runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings. New York reeled off nine runs from the third to the sixth, however, to pick up its starter.
