BALTIMORE, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Orlando Hernandez pitched seven innings Saturday to remain unbeaten and lead the New York Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
Derek Jeter, who had two hits and scored two runs, sparked a three-run eighth with an RBI single for the Yankees, who won for the sixth time in their last seven games.
Hernandez (8-0) limited the Orioles to a run on five hits. The Yankees are 11-1 in his 12 starts this season.
Sidney Ponson (10-14), who pitched a two-hit shutout against the Yankees last week, lost for just the second time since the All-Star break. The Baltimore righthander was charged with five runs -- three earned -- on 10 hits in seven-plus innings.
