BALTIMORE — The Yankees have overcome one injury after another this season to make a serious run at a postseason berth, so it wasn't all that surprising that they won again after losing shortstop Derek Jeter for the rest of the year.
Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking homer leading off the ninth inning, and Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson also homered in New York's 5-4 victory over the Orioles on Wednesday night.
The Yankees moved past Baltimore and the Indians in the AL wild-card hunt. They have hit eight home runs in winning two of three in the four-game series that ends tonight.
"That what you ask for," manager Joe Girardi said. "We have to continue to play well."
New York trailed 4-1 on Tuesday before rallying. In this one, Baltimore led 3-1 before Granderson homered in the fifth and Rodriguez tied it in the sixth.
In the ninth, after Cano connected off Tommy Hunter, Granderson tripled with one out and scored on Lyle Overbay's infield hit.
"We get down (Wednesday) and come back again," Girardi said. "We were able to take the lead in the ninth. We get a huge homer by Robbie and then a huge hit by Lyle that winds up being a lot bigger."
