MLB: Baltimore 8, New York Yankees 3

Sept. 2, 2012 at 5:05 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Mark Reynolds slammed a go-ahead, three-run homer in the sixth inning Sunday and the Baltimore Orioles went on to an 8-3 win over the New York Yankees.

Trailing 3-1 heading into the sixth, the Orioles cut the deficit to a run when Nate McLouth led off with a walk from Yankees starter Phil Hughes (13-12) and Adam Jones and Matt Wieters followed with consecutive singles.

That brought up Reynolds, who slammed a 1-0 pitch deep into the left field seats for a 5-3 Baltimore lead. The first baseman also delivered a solo shot in fifth -- his second two-homer contest in the O's three-game set at Yankee Stadium.

Reynolds finished 3-for-5 with four RBI an three runs scored as second-place Baltimore took the rubber match of the series and moved to within two games of American League East-leading New York.

Randy Wolf (1-0) earned the win with 3 1/3 innings of one-run ball in relief of starter Chris Tillman.

Hughes surrendered five runs on eight hits over five full frames for the Yanks.

Chris Dickerson socked a two-run homer for New York.
