O's Take Another In Extras

It took only ten innings for the Orioles to notch their second straight extra-innings victory over the Yankees, as the Birds walked-off with a 5-4 win at Camden Yards on Thursday afternoon.

Robert Andino was the unlikely hero, tying the game with an RBI single in the eighth before delivering the game-winning single in the tenth.

Alfredo Simon allowed four runs on six hits and six walks in just four innings, but the O's bullpen no-hit the Yankees over the final six frames, allowing just one walk while fanning eight. Pretty impressive...

Vladimir Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run, but it was Andino's two late RBIs that were the difference for the Orioles.

The Birds now head north to battle Toronto for three games; Jeremy Guthrie takes the mound for the O's.
