BALTIMORE -- For much of the season, Shane Greene put up unspectacular numbers for Scranton-Wilkes-Barre of the International League. R.A. Dickey Red Jersey . Now a member of the New York Yankees, the rookie right-hander is dominating some of the best hitters in the big leagues. Greene took a four-hitter into the eighth inning of his second major league start, and the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Saturday. Greene (2-0) struck out nine -- including Nelson Cruz three times -- and walked two in his third big league appearance. He didnt give up a hit until the fifth inning and allowed only two runners past second base in 7 1-3 innings. "We were really excited about him in spring training and what he could possibly do for us," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We felt he could help us at some point this year, and the time is now." It was Greenes second win in six days with the Yankees, the first coming at Cleveland, where the 25-year-old allowed two runs in six innings. "Hes stepping up, thats for sure," Girardi said. After going a combined 12-10 in the minors last year, Greene was 5-2 with a 4.61 ERA this season against such teams as the Buffalo Bisons and Gwinnett Braves. Somehow, that translated into success against the Indians and AL East-leading Orioles. "A dream come true," Greene said. "It means a lot that I got the opportunity and it means a lot that I can come up here and help the team win." David Robertson, the third New York reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 23rd save. Brian McCann had three hits for the Yankees, who moved within four games of the Orioles in the AL East. New York is 3-5 against Baltimore this season. It was only the third loss in 12 games for the Orioles, who finished with five hits. Chris Tillman (7-5) gave up three runs, seven hits and three walks in 6 2-3 innings. "Its another one of those (performances) that kind of gets looked at but is not properly appreciated because of what the other guy was doing," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The 3-4-5-6 hitters in the Baltimore lineup went 0 for 16 with 10 strikeouts. In addition to Cruz, Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy both struck out three times. "(Greene) didnt leave much over the plate and worked both sides of the plate," Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis said. "We couldnt get much going against him." The Yankees led 1-0 before chasing Tillman with a two-run seventh. Kelly Johnson led off with a single and advanced on a wild pitch before Derek Jeter hit a two-out RBI single to left. That prompted the thousands of Yankees fans among the sellout crowd of 46,667 to chant "Derek Jeter! Derek Jeter!" -- saluting the 40-year-old team captain who will retire after this season. Jacoby Ellsbury greeted T.J. McFarland with a broken-bat RBI double, and the inning ended when Ellsbury was cut down at the plate trying to score on McCanns single to centre. Ellsbury was the second New York runner to be thrown out at home, although it hardly mattered as the Yankees improved to 10-32 when scoring three runs or fewer. An RBI double by Mark Teixeira gave New York a 1-0 lead in the third, but Jeter was thrown out trying to score on the play. That would be the Yankees final hit until McCann singled with one out in the sixth. Greene allowed only a walk through four innings and struck out the first two batters in the fifth before Manny Machado grounded a single to left. Ryan Flaherty also singled before Nick Hundley struck out. New York got runners on the corners with two outs in the sixth before former Oriole Brian Roberts whiffed on a high fastball with the count 0-2. In the bottom half, the Orioles got successive singles from Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce before Adam Jones hit into a double play and Cruz struck out for the third time. NOTES: Chase Whitley will start for New York in Sunday nights series finale. Kevin Gausman will start for Baltimore. ... The Yankees designated RHP Matt Daley for assignment and activated LHP Jeff Francis, obtained in a trade with Oakland on Friday. "You dont want to put a limit on yourself. You just want to come here, you want to give the team good innings and help the team win. Thats the goal," Francis said. ... Knowing Miguel Gonzalez wouldnt be needed before the All-Star break, Baltimore optioned the right-hander to Triple-A Norfolk and recalled C Steve Clevenger from the same club. Gonzalez will return July 22 to face the Angels, Showalter said. ... The sellout was Baltimores second straight and seventh of the season. Tony Sanchez Jersey .Y. -- Dont rule out Niagara Falls as a potential future home of the Buffalo Bills. Roy Halladay Blue Jays Jersey .com) - Mikko Korhonen carded a 5-under 67 on Thursday to claim medalist honors at the European Tours Final Qualifying Stage tournament. RITZING, Austria -- It wasnt the long-awaited win that Canada was hoping for, but it was a credible result against a decent European side and an end to an embarrassing 14-month goalless run for Canadas mens soccer team. The Canadians came from a goal down to draw Bulgaria 1-1 in an international friendly at the Sonnenseestadion in Ritzing, Austria on Friday. Atiba Hutchinson converted a penalty in the 26th minute to tie the game after Bulgaria had opened the scoring with a nicely-worked goal by Andrey Galabinov in the 18th minute. The draw represents arguably the best result of the teams current project under the leadership of Spanish coach Benito Floro. The Canadian side has been mired in a miserable spell on the back of a calamitous exit from World Cup Qualifying in October of 2012, but Floro said that Fridays result in Austria signals the end of the "first stage" of his restructuring of the teams fundamental philosophies. "For us it (was) a very good result. Not only because we scored a goal and tied the game but especially because of the tactical behaviour," said Floro, who still speaks largely through an interpreter due to his limited English. Canada showed some rare attacking verve in the first half with Hutchinsons incisive passing leading to clear-cut chances for Tosaint Ricketts and Randy Edwini-Bonsu. But as the game wore on and the score level at 1-1, it was Bulgaria who lookedd the more likely to score the winning goal -- something that Floro attributed to end-of-season fatigue for his players. Jose Bautista Red Jersey. "In the second half our players were very tired because they are at the end of their (club) seasons and we did not have another experienced player to make a change with. "So, at the end, it was a very good result and tactical behaviour," he said. For Hutchinson, who broke Canadas ugly goalless streak that dated back to a March 2013 goal by Marcus Haber, it was simply a feeling of "relief to get that over and done with. "Now the next step is to get a win," he said. A victory would indeed go a long way to adding some sincerity to the notion that Canada is a team on an upward trajectory. The Canadians have not won a match since beating Cuba 3-0 in Toronto in October of 2012 and theyre still winless in six matches under their new Spanish boss. But despite another match without a win, Hutchinson cited the resiliency that Canada showed as something that bodes well for the future. "Its something thats definitely been a problem for Canada. Whenever weve conceded goals weve dropped our heads," he said. "Now were looking forward and building the right attitude, on and off the pitch." Canada will next take on Moldova on Tuesday in Mauer, Austria, before the team disbands again until its next camp in Toronto in September.
