If you're willing to lose games with Johnny Barbato, maybe you deserve last place. The Yankees used Dellin Betances for one inning and just 10 pitches and he came out in a tie game. Barbato came in, allowed two hits, and THEN Andrew Miller was summoned. He gave up the game-losing sac fly. 9-17.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he used Johnny Barbato instead of closer Andrew Miller to begin the 10th against the Orioles because the Yankees didn't have the lead. If he had used Miller to start the 10th, Girardi reasoned, he would still have to use Barbato. In the 10th. Barbato allowed the first two runners to reach. By the time Miller got in the game, it was too late, as Pedro Alvarez's sac fly won it.

Here we go. The classic case of "guy who just made the big, game-saving defensive play" coming to bat with a chance to win it: Dustin Ackley.

That was Chase Headley's 84th PA this season without an extra base hit. No one else in baseball has more than 56 without one (Rafael Ortega).

Schoop shows off, saves ump (0:32)

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was ejected from Thursday night's game for arguing during the fourth inning. Girardi got into it with third base ump Chris Guccione, ranting and waving his arms. It wasn't entirely clear why Girardi argued, though, there was press box speculation that he felt a balk call was missed. There is no score between the Orioles and Yankees in the fourth.

The Jets announced the signings of CB Juston Burris (fourth round), T Brandon Shell (fifth) and P Lachlan Edwards (seventh). They have four unsigned draft picks.

The Yankees are waiting for Dr. Chris Ahmad's opinion on Alex Rodriguez's hamstring MRI on before making any announcements about how long A-Rod will be out. It may be a little awkward if Rodriguez meets with Ahmad since he once sued the doctor for malpractice. The suit was filed when A-Rod was suing everybody, during the Biogenesis investigation. It was later dropped.

Terry Collins strongly implied that lefty reliever Josh Edgin will remain in the minors when his rehab assignment expires Sunday, while acknowledging it is the front office's decision. During a scoreless inning for Las Vegas on Wednesday, Edgin's fastball velocity was only 87-88 mph. Collins said Edgin will also need to pitch consecutive days before returning, which he has not done yet. Collins added that there's really not a vacancy in the Mets' bullpen at the moment. "Not right now," Collins said. "It could change tomorrow."
