Bases-loaded walk wins it for Yankees over Rays in 12th inning

Dean Anna drew a bases-loaded walk on a full-count pitch with two outs and Carlos Beltran followed with a two-run single during a four-run 12th inning as the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Sunday.


Yangervis Solarte was walked by Heath Bell (0-1) to open the 12th. After failing twice to bunt against C.J. Riefenhauser, Brett Gardner reached on a fielder's choice and went to third on Brian McCann's two-out single. Jacoby Ellsbury was intentionally walked before Anna checked his swing to complete an eight-pitch at-bat and score the go-ahead run.


Beltran had his hit off Josh Leuke before Alfonso Soriano added an RBI single that made it 5-1.


Preston Claiborne (1-0) went two scoreless innings for the Yankees.
