Aaron Hicks delivered a walk-off RBI double in the 11th inning and the Yankees beat the Orioles, 3-2, to clinch a spot in the playoffs. >> Box score
1) In the second inning, Hicks blasted his 26th home run of the season and Luke Voit followed it up with a solo home run of his own to put the Yankees in front, 2-0. The Yankees' offense then went dark for most of the remainder of the game. After the fourth inning, New York did not record another hit until Gregorius' leadoff single in the 11th inning. Hicks' took advantage of rare baserunners and came through with the game-winning hit.
2) The Orioles trimmed that lead in half during the third inning when Breyvic Calera scored on a throwing error by Gary Sanchez. In the fifth, Baltimore's DJ Stewart hit an RBI single to tie the game at 2-2. Yankees starter Lance Lynn ultimately allowed two runs, one earned, on seven hits in five innings. He struck out four batters and walked two.
3) The Yankees used six relievers to string together six scoreless innings. Chad Green, Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, and Zach Britton, Jonathan Holder and Tommy Kahnle each turned in scoreless frames during extra innings
