Nelson Cruz finished 4-for-5 in the Orioles' 9-5 defeat of the Yankees on Wednesday.
Cruz grounded out in his first at-bat, but he singled twice and scored a run in the Orioles' six-run fourth inning, singled again in the seventh inning, and then tallied an RBI with his fourth single of the afternoon in the top of the eighth. The Yankees have now been eliminated from postseason contention. Cruz is batting .275/.338/.531 with 40 home runs and 108 RBI in 156 games this season for the American League East champs.
