The air at Camden Yards had the feeling of a crisp October night, but on the field it was most definitely of the early-April variety.

It wasn't pretty, but the Yankees escaped with a 5-4 win over the Orioles in 12 innings on Raul Ibañez's game-winning double.

The Yankees overcame five wild pitches by Freddy Garcia, a crucial error by Russell Martin and a dreadful 2-for-18 performance with runners in scoring position to avoid their first 1-4 start since 2006.

"It was just a strange day," Joe Girardi said.
