The very next inning, Derek Jeter lead off with a single and moved to second on a bunt. A Tim Raines groundout moved Jeter to third with two outs, setting the table for Rivera who had come into the game an inning earlier. Rivera lined a single to right field which scored Jeter, and the Yankees walked-off as winners.
Andy Pettitte started for New York, and pitched 8.1 innings of two-run ball. He gave way to Mariano Rivera, who eventually got the win. On the other side, Scott Erickson started and allowed just one run, coming on a fielder’s choice in the fifth inning.
The Yankees and Orioles will play a doubleheader tomorrow
