Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Vernon Wells grounded the game-winning single into left field to cap a two-run rally against Jim Johnson in the bottom of the ninth inning to boost the New York Yankees to a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Ivan Nova (3-2) had a season-high 11 strikeouts in the first complete game of his career, but the Yankees were trailing going into their final at-bat.

David Adams singled to right field and Johnson was unable to field Brett Gardner's bunt. Both runners advanced on Ichiro Suzuki's sacrifice bunt, and Robinson Cano was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Travis Hafner walked on four pitches, with ball four coming high, to tie the game. Wells, facing a 2-2 count, grounded his hit past a diving Manny Machado in the hole between shortstop and third base to plate Gardner.

Nova allowed three hits and walked only one batter to help the Yankees to their fifth straight victory. They also broke a five-game skid against the Orioles.

Johnson (2-7) suffered his sixth blown save of the season, as the Orioles lost their second in a row.

Matt Wieters hit a two-run homer for Baltimore, which had three hits and couldn't put a runner in scoring position.
