Carlos Beltran's walk-off home run lifts Yankees over Orioles (VIDEO)

A Yankees season that already had way more injuries than exciting finishes finally added the one thing its been missing on Friday night: a walk-off victory.

Carlos Beltran's three-run walk-off home run off Zach Britton capped the Yankees' comeback in a 5-3 victory over the Orioles in the Bronx. 

The Yankees low energy offense — which left runners in scoring position all night —  scored four times in the ninth for their fourth straight victory and eighth in their last 10.

"We couldn't seem to get the big hit when we needed it but we found a way to get it done," manager Joe Girardi said. "That's what you need to do if you want to play in October.

"It's been somewhat of a struggle then he got hurt. But you can just see him starting to square the balls up," Girardi said of his DH. "That was a tremendous at-bat."

Here's the first Gatorade shower at Yankee Stadium this year.
