Noland Reimold, Mark Reynolds and the Baltimore Orioles (56-85) rained on a day the New York Yankees (87-54) took time to honor the victims of September 11; as the Bombers fell by a final score of 5-4 in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon.
It was a very sloppy game for both squads, as the two teams competed in an extra-inning affair-after waiting out the rain four hours to complete a game on Tuesday.
Leading the Yankees offense was Alex Rodriguez, who had two-run double (20) in the bottom of the first inning. Also continuing to swing a hot stick at Yankee Stadium is rookie-phenom Jesus Montero, who drove in two-runs in the bottom of the fourth, which tied the game up at 4-4.
Reynolds provided the game-winner in the top of the 11th inning, lacing a single to left center, which led to the 5-4 Orioles victory.
These two teams will meet one last time in Baltimore on Thursday, before the Yankees head out west to take on the Angles and the Mariners.
The Bombers will send out rookie-sensation Ivan Nova (15-4) to take on Alfredo Simon (4-8, 4.64 ERA) with the first pitch slated for 1:05 p.m.
