Carlos Beltran always said that he wanted to be a member of the New York Yankees. On Friday night, Beltran got his chance to show the team why they were right in signing him over the winter.

The Yankees were trailing the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 and Baltimore put in their closer, Zack Britton into the game. Brett Gardner was able to work a lead-off single, which was followed by Derek Jeter striking out and Jacoby Ellsbury flying out for the first two outs of the inning. Mark Teixeira was able to draw a walk, setting up first and second with two outs.

Brian McCann singled to center to score Gardner, making it 3-2 with Beltran coming up to bat. And the Yankees slugger did not miss.

Beltran ripped a high fastball into the left-field seats for a walk-off home run and the Yankees were able to take the first of three against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium 5-3. The home run was Beltran's seventh of the season and his sixth career walk-off.

Since Beltran's return from the disabled list on June 5, the Yankees are 10-4 with Beltran back in the lineup and are now 39-33 on the season, trailing the Toronto Blue Jays by 1.5 games back in the American League East.
