Orioles 1 6 4
Yankees 2 4 0

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Andy Pettitte. The veteran lefty went 7.1 innings, allowing only 1 run on 6 hits. He helped the Yanks win their 3rd-straight close game.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Mark Teixeira cutting down Cezar Izturis at the plate to keep the game tied in the top of the 8th inning.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Hideki Matsui's walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the ninth to win the game.

Game Notes:

  • With the Rangers 6-2 over the Red Sox, the Yankees are now tied for first place in the AL East.

  • Matsui's homer is the Yankees's 4th walk-off home run of the season. That ties them for first in the league with the Rangers.

  • Eric Hinske has hit 4 home runs in his first 5 games with the Yankees. That hasn't been done since 1977, when Dave Kingman did it.
