Damon Uses Pinstripe Mystique

In a back and forth game, the Yankees were the last on top. Baltimore came out with a run in the first and third innings to make it a slim 2-0 lead until the Yankees came with a run of their own. In the sixth inning, the pinstripes added more runs, two exact, until Baltimore scored one to tie the game at three.
Yankees scored again twice in the seventh to take a lead only to see it be tied once again by the fighting birds.
In the ninth inning, Johnny Damon reached base, stole second and was called out until he hit the ball out of Brian Robert's glove to reverse the umpires call. Two batters later, Derek Jeter laced a line drive base hit to score Damon and take a 6-5 lead.
With Rivera still out, Joe Torre called on Kyle Farnsworth to protect the lead which he failed to do last night. This night he proved successful and closed out the game.
Derek Jeter was batting in the three spot and promptly went 2-3 with two RBIs and a run scored.

Final Score:
Yankees 6, Orioles 5
