BALTIMORE -- Baltimore's Matt Wieters hit a pinch-hit single in the eighth inning off New York reliever Aroldis Chapman that scored three runs, lifting the Orioles to a 3-1 victory over the Yankees on Sunday.
Baltimore took the three-game series by also winning the opener Friday.
New York's CC Sabathia labored through five-plus innings, but managed to keep the Orioles scoreless. He allowed just two hits with five strikeouts and six walks on 111 pitches. He also threw seven shutout innings in Baltimore on May 4 and was looking for his 20th win against the Orioles.
The Orioles finally broke through in the eighth when Mark Trumbo walked and Chris Davis singled off Dellin Betances. After Betances (2-4) struck out Nolan Reimold, the game was delayed because of rain. When play resumed after 1 hour and 37 minutes, Chapman entered for New York. He struck out Schoop before Francisco Pena lined a single to right to load the bases. Wieters then lined a single up the middle that scored two runs and a throwing error by Jacoby Ellsbury allowed the third run to score.
T.J. McFarland (1-1) picked up the win with two scoreless innings of relief, while Zach Britton earned his 17th save.
Baltimore's Kevin Gausman remains winless in nine starts, despite another effective outing where he got no run support. He allowed one run on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks in six innings.
The Yankees took a 1-0 lead on an RBI single by Alex Rodriguez that scored Ellsbury, who moved into scoring position on a wild pitch by Gausman. The Yankees threatened again in the fourth helped by an error on Manny Machado that put runners on first and second. Gausman walked Rob Refsnyder to load the bases before striking out Ellsbury to get out of the jam.
New York ran itself out of a potentially big inning in the fifth when Gardner led off with a double but was thrown out trying to take third on a grounder by Rodriguez. The Orioles loaded the bases in the bottom half of the inning, but Sabathia struck out Trumbo for the third straight time to remain unscathed.
NOTES: Yankees C Brian McCann was back in the lineup for the first time in three days. He had hyperextended his left elbow last week against Toronto and was day-to-day heading into the three-game series in Baltimore. ... Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (left foot fracture) was able to play catch from 90 feet for the first time during his rehab. Hardy was placed on the DL on May 3, retroactive to the previous day. ... New York C Austin Romine suffered a torn nail on his left thumb in the ninth inning of Saturday's game. However, Romine told manager Joe Girardi that he was available if needed. "It's good. A little sore," Romine said. ... Baltimore C Francisco Pena got his second start since being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on May 31. It was a special day because Pena's father and former catcher, Tony Pena, is the first base coach for New York.
