Yankees walk-off agains the Orioles

The Yankees had a very good walk-off win against the Baltimore Orioles tonight by the score of 6-5.  It wasn't all good though as Phil Hughes continues to struggle.  Bartolo Colon came on in relief and held the Orioles scoreless for three innings giving the offense a chance to comeback which they did.  Alex Rodriguez had a big game with three more hits, Jorge Posada had another homerun that tied the game in the bottom of the ninth and Nick Swisher hit the game winning sacrifice fly. 

The Yankees for now are going to try and figure out Hughes.  Joe Girardi said he will wait until tomorrow to talk to the staff and evaluate him before saying if they may do something like skip him a start or something like that.  The Yankees for now will enjoy this win and being alone in first place even though it is too early in the season. 

Curtis Granderson had two hits, Derek Jeter had a hit.  The offense was silent for four innings but then woke up and came roaring back.  The Yankees will now take on the Texas Rangers for three weekend games at the Stadium.  Ivan Nova will start on Friday night for the Yankees against Matt Harrison.
