For the 2nd straight day, the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles played an extra inning game.
And for the 2nd straight day, the Orioles outlasted the Yanks in extra innings. Baltimore defeated New York, 5-4 on Thursday afternoon in front of a sparse crowd at Camden Yards.

This was a make-up game due to the Hurricane Irene rainout in late August. The Yankees initially didn't want to come to Baltimore because it was taking away an off day.

Derek Jeter went 1 for 4 with 2 RBIs. In 53 games since coming off the disabled list, he now has 36 RBI.
Yesterday afternoon, the O's beat the Yanks by the same 5-4 score in 11 innings in a game played in the Bronx.
