Alfonso Soriano hit his second homer of the game in a four-run eighth inning as the New York Yankees rallied to a 7-5 win at the Baltimore Orioles.

The Yankees (77-68) are two games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the race for the second of two wild-card spots in the American League. The Cleveland Indians and Orioles (77-67) are 1 1/2 games behind the Rays. Tampa Bay lost 2-0 to the Boston Red Sox last night and the Texas Rangers, who hold the first wild-card slot, lost for the fifth time in six games, 5-4 against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Alex Rodriguez gave the Yankees a 1-0 lead in the third inning with a run-scoring double at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Chris Davis hit his Major League Baseball-leading 49th home run in the fifth to give the Orioles a 4-1 advantage before Soriano and Mark Reynolds started the sixth inning with a home run each.

In the eighth, Robinson Cano tied the game 4-4 with a single, Soriano had a two-run homer and Reynolds drove in Curtis Granderson on a double that put the Yankees ahead 7-4.

Adam Warren (2-2) struck out one in a perfect seventh inning for the win and Mariano Rivera recorded his 42nd save. Kevin Gausman (2-5) allowed three runs on three hits for the loss.

The Yankees and Orioles have split the first two games of their four-game series.
