Machado, O's beat Yanks for 6th straight win

Jun 14, 2015 - 5:20 AM Baltimore, MD ( - Manny Machado clubbed a two-run homer among his three hits and matched a career high with four RBI as the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 9-4 on Saturday night at Camden Yards.

Nolan Reimold also hit a two-run homer for the Orioles, who have won a season- best six straight games. They moved above .500 for the first time since they were 12-11.

"We've got to keep fighting, keep battling," Machado said.

Baltimore starter Bud Norris gave up four runs on eight hits and struck out five with no walks in 5 2/3 innings.

Alex Rodriguez surpassed 2,000 career RBI with a two-run homer for New York, which has dropped three games in a row on the heels of a seven-game winning streak.

CC Sabathia got the start for the Yankees and allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings.

Chase Headley singled to begin the sixth, ending a streak of 11 batters in a row retired by Norris. Rodriguez then lined a home run to right-center field, tying the game at 4-4.

Rodriguez has 2,001 career RBI and is five hits shy of 3,000.

Mark Teixeira followed with a double but was thrown out at third on a groundball hit to the right side by Brian McCann.

Norris was lifted after Didi Gregorius doubled with two outs, and T.J. McFarland walked Stephen Drew to load the bases. The Yankees came up empty when Chaz Roe (2-0) got pinch-hitter Chris Young to fly out to center.

"We tie the game, but then we give it up in the bottom of the sixth," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

The Orioles quickly answered with three runs against Chris Martin (0-2) in the bottom of the sixth. Matt Wieters led off with a double, went to third on one of Martin's three wild pitches and scored the go-ahead run on a single by J.J. Hardy.

After Ryan Flaherty hit a one-out single and Martin threw another wild pitch, Machado drove in two runs with a single to right.

Baltimore extended its lead further against the New York bullpen, scoring two runs in the seventh off Sergio Santos, who was making his debut with the club.

David Lough led off with what was initially ruled a triple. The call was overturned to a home run after a video review. Steve Pearce later lined an RBI double to make it 9-4.

Staked to a 2-0 lead before taking the mound, Sabathia gave up a game-tying home run to Reimold in the third. The blast to right-center field came after Teixeira and McCann let a Reimold popup fall in foul territory earlier in the at-bat.

Flaherty led off the fifth with a single and Machado drove a Sabathia pitch over the left-center field wall to put Baltimore up 4-2. Reimold followed with a triple but was stranded at third base.

New York opened the scoring in the first on consecutive two-out hits by Teixeira and McCann. Teixeira singled home Headley and scored on a McCann double.
