Yankees Outslugged By Orioles, Now Tied For 1st Place
Mark Reynolds hit two of Baltimore’s season-high six home runs, and the Orioles climbed back into a
first-place tie with the Yankees in the AL East by defeating New York 10-6 Thursday night before a euphoric sellout crowd at Camden Yards.
Adam Jones’ leadoff homer in the eighth inning off David Robertson (1-6) put Baltimore ahead 7-6 after the Yankees rallied from a five-run deficit in the top half. Matt Wieters followed with a single and Reynolds hit a drive into the left-field seats. Chris Davis then slammed the first pitch from Derek Lowe over the right-field wall.
Wieters and Robert Andino also connected for the Orioles, who have won 10 of 13 — a run that includes three of four over New York.
