Craig Gentry hit an RBI single in the 12th inning to help the Orioles beat the Yankees 8-7 on Sunday.
The hit was Gentry's third of the day, and he also score a run. Playing against left-handed pitchers, he's hitting .333 on the season, and while he doesn't possess much power, he's a stolen-base threat. He's a sneaky good play against southpaws in DFS lineups. Apr 8 - 6:05 PM
