Yankees Beat Orioles 4-3, Rallying From Three-Run Deficit

Robinson Cano’s home run was one of four New York hits as the Yankees rallied to beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3.

The win stretched the Yankees’ lead over Baltimore in the American League East to three games.

Matt Wieters hit a homer in the third inning to give Baltimore (73-59) a 3-0 lead before New York responded with four unanswered runs. After Cano hit his 28th homer in the fourth, the Yankees scored three in the seventh, with Eduardo Nunez hitting a run-scoring single, Derek Jeter walking in a run and Nunez scoring on an error by Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy.

Wei-Yin Chen (12-8) went 6 2/3 innings for the Orioles and took the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits. David Phelps went 4 2/3 for New York (76-56), allowing three runs on three hits while striking out three and walking six. Boone Logan (6-2) earned the win in relief and Rafael Soriano notched his 35th save with a perfect ninth inning.
