(AP) 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. 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.


Ronald Belisario (4-6) got two outs in the ninth inning, but took the loss. He walked Derek Jeter and pinch-hitter Ichiro Suzuki, who both scored after Belisario was relieved by Rodriguez.


Suzuki and Overbay scored when Ellis dropped a fly ball by Jayson Nix in shallow right field. Yasiel Puig came running in as Ellis was tracking the ball with his back to the rookie, whose left hand struck Ellis' glove as the ball dropped.


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.
