Pedro Ciriaco, who started the rally with a single, slid in to beat the throw from right fielder Ichiro Suzuki to give Boston its second win in 13 games.

The loss left the Yankees and Orioles tied with 79-62 records. Baltimore beat Tampa Bay 9-2 on Tuesday night. The Rays are two back in the division.

Andrew Bailey (1-0) got the win after allowing one hit in one inning.

David Robertson (1-7) retired his first four batters before giving up Ciriaco’s single to left field with one out in the ninth.

Mike Aviles then singled into the shortstop hole where Derek Jeter fielded the ball but couldn’t make the throw.

Then Ellsbury capped an outstanding performance on his 29th birthday with a sharp single to right.
