ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELLS: The Yankees recorded their second walk-off win of the season last night on Vernon Wells’ bases-loaded single. After being marred in a slump for over a month, Wells has three multi-hit games, batting .500 (6 for 12) and four RBI in those contests.

ICH-ROLL: Ichiro Suzuki is batting .341 (29 for 85) with 11 runs, three homers, 10 RBI, seven stolen bases and eight multi-hit games in his last 21 games.

REHAB ROAD: Derek Jeter is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre today. RHP Michael Pineda is scheduled to make his fifth rehab start tonight in the same game. Alex Rodriguez has been transferred to Single-A Tampa.

(I’ll be updating what’s going on in the game here every so often, but I’ll be much more active on Twitter. Follow me @vzmercogliano to join in the conversation!)

UPDATE, 1:35 p.m.: Pettitte’s struggles continue. After giving up a two-run homer to Davis in the first, his throwing error in the second led to an RBI double from Casilla. O’s lead 3-0.

UPDATE, 1:51 p.m.: The Yanks get two back in the bottom of the second. Cruz singled with the bases loaded and no out to score the first run, with another coming home on Nunez’s sac fly. That cut the Baltimore lead to 3-2.

UPDATE, 2:50 p.m.: We have a tie ballgame. After the Orioles went up 4-2 on Teagarden’s RBI single in the top of the fifth, the Yanks responded with RBI singles from Ichiro and Cano in the bottom half of the inning to tie it at 4-4.
