Yankees Rout Orioles to Snap Losing Streak

Robinson Cano hit a grand slam in a seven-run third inning, and New York sent Zach Britton to another shellacking at Yankee Stadium in a 12-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday that stopped a four-game losing streak.

With Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on hand and sitting with the Bleacher Creatures at the start, Derek Jeter had three hits and three RBIs on a rainy afternoon and Joba Chamberlain returned from elbow and ankle injuries that had sidelined him since June 5 last season. Phil Hughes (11-8) pitched homerless ball for only the fifth time this year.

A night after wasting a five-run, first-inning lead in an 11-5 defeat, New York won for just the fourth time in 13 games and restored a 6 1/2-game lead in the AL East.
