The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees had their nine-game winning streak come to an end Saturda night then got right back to their winning ways Sunday.

The Yankees reached the 80-win mark for the fifth time in six seasons under manager Dave Miley with a 6-2 International League win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in Allentown.

Brandon Laird's game-winning, two-run single in the top of the seventh helped the Yankees reduce their magic number for winning the IL North Division title to two. Any combination of two wins by the Yankees or losses by the Pawtucket Red Sox clinches the title.

Justin Thomas (2-1) used his longest pitching appearance of the season to get the win for the Yankees (80-57).

Cory Wade retired the last five batters he faced in two scoreless innings for his fifth save.

Lehigh Valley defeated the Yankees, 9-5, Saturday.
