Yankees extend winning streak to 4 with walk-off win over Orioles

Luke Voit’s sacrifice fly brought home DJ LeMahieu with the deciding run as the Yankees extended their winning streak to four games on Saturday afternoon, celebrating a 2-1, 10-inning victory over the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

The win extended the gap between the Yankees (No. 8) and Orioles (9) to 4 1/2 games in the push for the eighth and final spot in the American League postseason standings.

The Bombers posted their third walk-off victory as they improved to 4-1 in extra-inning games this season. Hunter Harvey’s wild pitch advanced the automatic runner to third base before Voit lifted a fly ball to center field.

Leading to Voit’s first career walk-off RBI, New York’s pitching was fantastic. Jonathan Holder earned the victory, pitching a perfect top half of the frame. Jordan Montgomery extended the Yankees’ recent string of solid starting performances, registering a career-high nine strikeouts over 5 2/3 sharp innings.

Montgomery pitched scorelessly into the sixth, when Baltimore tied the game through no fault of the left-hander’s. Hanser Alberto led off with a single to left field that Brett Gardner bobbled for an error.
