Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Chris Davis went 4-for-4 and was one of three
Baltimore players to homer as the Orioles slugged their way to a 6-3 win over
the New York Yankees in the finale of a three-game series.
Davis topped Nick Markakis' solo blast in the bottom of the first inning with
a two-run shot later in the frame, while Matt Wieters tacked on a three-run
homer later on to help Baltimore down its AL East rival for a second straight
night after opening an eight-game homestand with six consecutive losses.
Wieters, Adam Jones and Manny Machado each collected two hits to back 6 2/3
solid innings from Jason Hammel (6-2), who held the Yankees to a pair of runs
while striking out six.
Counterpart Huroki Kuroda (6-3) had a rough time, serving up eight hits and
getting charged for five runs before exiting with none out in the bottom of
the third, the result of a bruised right calf the New York starter sustained
from a Machado line drive an inning earlier.
Curtis Granderson had a big night in defeat for the Yankees, finishing 3-for-3
with two runs scored and his first home run of the season. David Adams added
another solo homer in the top of the ninth.
