MLB: N.Y. Yankees 2, Baltimore 1

NEW YORK, May 22 (UPI) -- Robinson Cano singled in Hideki Matsui from second with two out in the ninth Thursday, giving the New York Yankees a 2-1 win over Baltimore.

The Yankees gave Joe Girardi the 100th victory of his managerial career, although he was not around at the end. He was ejected in the ninth inning, just moments before Cano came up with his game-winning hit.

Mariano Rivera (1-1) protected a 1-1 tie in the ninth and earned the win. Jim Johnson (0-2), who came on with two out in the eighth, was charged with the loss.

After Matsui singled off Johnson to start the ninth, Alex Rodriguez struck out and Jason Giambi was called out on a foul tip. Girardi came out to argue, believing the ball did not hit Giambi's bat, and the New York manager was eventually kicked out of the game.

After Bobby Abreu drew a walk as a pinch hitter, Cano sliced a single to left. Matsui slid in under Jay Payton's high throw home.
