BALTIMORE -- For much of the season, Shane Greene put up unspectacular numbers for Scranton-Wilkes-Barre of the International League. Solomon Thomas Jersey . Now a member of the New York Yankees, the rookie right-hander is dominating some of the best hitters in the big leagues. Greene took a four-hitter into the eighth inning of his second major league start, and the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Saturday. Greene (2-0) struck out nine -- including Nelson Cruz three times -- and walked two in his third big league appearance. He didnt give up a hit until the fifth inning and allowed only two runners past second base in 7 1-3 innings. "We were really excited about him in spring training and what he could possibly do for us," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We felt he could help us at some point this year, and the time is now." It was Greenes second win in six days with the Yankees, the first coming at Cleveland, where the 25-year-old allowed two runs in six innings. "Hes stepping up, thats for sure," Girardi said. After going a combined 12-10 in the minors last year, Greene was 5-2 with a 4.61 ERA this season against such teams as the Buffalo Bisons and Gwinnett Braves. Somehow, that translated into success against the Indians and AL East-leading Orioles. "A dream come true," Greene said. "It means a lot that I got the opportunity and it means a lot that I can come up here and help the team win." David Robertson, the third New York reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 23rd save. Brian McCann had three hits for the Yankees, who moved within four games of the Orioles in the AL East. New York is 3-5 against Baltimore this season. It was only the third loss in 12 games for the Orioles, who finished with five hits. Chris Tillman (7-5) gave up three runs, seven hits and three walks in 6 2-3 innings. "Its another one of those (performances) that kind of gets looked at but is not properly appreciated because of what the other guy was doing," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The 3-4-5-6 hitters in the Baltimore lineup went 0 for 16 with 10 strikeouts. In addition to Cruz, Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy both struck out three times. "(Greene) didnt leave much over the plate and worked both sides of the plate," Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis said. "We couldnt get much going against him." The Yankees led 1-0 before chasing Tillman with a two-run seventh. Kelly Johnson led off with a single and advanced on a wild pitch before Derek Jeter hit a two-out RBI single to left. That prompted the thousands of Yankees fans among the sellout crowd of 46,667 to chant "Derek Jeter! Derek Jeter!" -- saluting the 40-year-old team captain who will retire after this season. Jacoby Ellsbury greeted T.J. McFarland with a broken-bat RBI double, and the inning ended when Ellsbury was cut down at the plate trying to score on McCanns single to centre. Ellsbury was the second New York runner to be thrown out at home, although it hardly mattered as the Yankees improved to 10-32 when scoring three runs or fewer. An RBI double by Mark Teixeira gave New York a 1-0 lead in the third, but Jeter was thrown out trying to score on the play. That would be the Yankees final hit until McCann singled with one out in the sixth. Greene allowed only a walk through four innings and struck out the first two batters in the fifth before Manny Machado grounded a single to left. Ryan Flaherty also singled before Nick Hundley struck out. New York got runners on the corners with two outs in the sixth before former Oriole Brian Roberts whiffed on a high fastball with the count 0-2. In the bottom half, the Orioles got successive singles from Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce before Adam Jones hit into a double play and Cruz struck out for the third time. NOTES: Chase Whitley will start for New York in Sunday nights series finale. Kevin Gausman will start for Baltimore. ... The Yankees designated RHP Matt Daley for assignment and activated LHP Jeff Francis, obtained in a trade with Oakland on Friday. "You dont want to put a limit on yourself. You just want to come here, you want to give the team good innings and help the team win. Thats the goal," Francis said. ... Knowing Miguel Gonzalez wouldnt be needed before the All-Star break, Baltimore optioned the right-hander to Triple-A Norfolk and recalled C Steve Clevenger from the same club. Gonzalez will return July 22 to face the Angels, Showalter said. ... The sellout was Baltimores second straight and seventh of the season. Ronnie Lott Jersey . And like the near entirety of last season, Jonathan Bernier and Torontos goaltending tandem is up to the task. Delvin Williams Jersey . Bobrovsky posted a 2-0-1 record with a 1.58 goals-against average and .950 save percentage to help the Blue Jackets (35-26-6) gain five of a possible six points last week. He capped the week by making 32 saves and stopping 2-of-4 shootout attempts in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-charles-haley-jersey-large-388d.html Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The season is over for the Michigan Wolverines and, unfortunately, for Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett. Barrett left the field on a cart after breaking his right ankle early in fourth quarter in a 42-28 victory for the seventh-ranked Buckeyes over their rivals.

Were going to have (sophomore quarterback) Cardale (Jones) ready to go. Devin Gardner was 22-of-32 for 233 yards with two touchdown passes for Michigan (5-7, 3-5), but he also committed two turnovers - one of which was returned for a score. Brady Hoke, in likely his final game as Michigans head coach, spoke of the Wolverines disappointing season afterwards. Im really proud of this football team. Im disappointed for them, but Im proud of how they hung together as a group, Hoke said. Barrett capped the opening drive of the third quarter with a 2-yard touchdown run, giving Ohio State a 21-14 lead. Drake Johnson rushed for two touchdowns for Michigan, the second tying coming on the ensuing possession. He injured his left knee at tthe end of 4-yard run that finished off a 12-play, 75-yard sequence. Deebo Samuel Jersey. The Buckeyes responded by marching 81 yards in 14 plays and regained the lead on Elliotts short TD run. Barrett was injured following a three-and-out by the Wolverines. His leg got caught underneath him as he was being tackled at the end of a run for no gain. After another Michigan punt, Elliott ran 44 yards for a touchdown on 4th- and-1. Joey Bosa then forced a Gardner fumble, which was scooped and returned 33 yards by Darron Lee to make it 42-21. Gardner threw a late TD pass to Freddy Canteen to complete the scoring. Barrett hit Nick Vannett for a 6-yard touchdown off play-action after Gardner was intercepted by Vonn Bell on the games second play. Later in the first quarter, Gardner completed a 45-yard pass to Devin Funchess to set up a 12-yard scoring strike to Jake Butt on the next snap. Ohio State punted to begin the second quarter, pinning Michigan at its own 5- yard line. The Wolverines responded with meticulous 15-play drive and grabbed a 14-7 lead when Johnson powered his way in for a 2-yard score. Stagnant for much of the first half, the Buckeyes offense came alive late in the first half. Ohio State tied the game by constructing a 10-play, 83-yard drive, which ended with a 25-yard touchdown scramble by Barrett with seven seconds remaining. Game Notes Barrett established a new Big Ten single-season record for total touchdowns with 45. He broke Drew Brees previous mark of 42 set in 1998 ...
