Yankees edge Orioles in 10 innings

In the brief period that has elapsed since Luke Voit (Louis) stashed his gear in the Yankees’ clubhouse, his new teammates have pegged him as a player who carries himself with some swagger. The rookie showed on Friday night that he has the muscle to back it up.

A pair of timely swings may have secured more opportunities for Voit, who enjoyed his first career multi-homer game in the Yankees’ 7-5, 10-inning victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards. Neil Walker (Walkie) hit a go-ahead homer in the 10th inning and Gleyber Torres (GT) also delivered a big hit, lifting New York to its fifth win in six games.

“I know I can hit,” Voit said. “It’s nice to finally get some at-bats and everything felt great. It was fun and exciting with Walker hitting that ball to go ahead and me doing that too, it makes baseball so fun. I’m having a great time with these guys.”
