LOS ANGELES – Pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning, helping the New York Yankees to a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Overbay, who drove in both New York runs in a 3-2 loss on Tuesday, singled on a 1-2 pitch from Paco Rodriguez (2-3). Robinson Cano scored after reaching on a fielder's choice groundout.
The Yankees added two more runs on an error by Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis, whose two-out RBI single drove in the winning run Tuesday.
Ichiro Suzuki and Overbay scored when Ellis dropped a fly ball by Jayson Nix in shallow right field.
Boone Logan (3-2) got the win in relief.
Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth to earn his 34th save in 36 chances in his farewell season.
