The Yankees would then take the lead with two outs in the top of the ninth-inning on a bases loaded walk thrown by Mychal Givens. Aaron Hicks was the batter at the time for New York. Jonathan Villar would then ground into a double play for Baltimore to end the game and it would resulted in a 6-5 win for the New York Yankees.
