NEW YORK (AP) – Brian Matusz won his fourth straight start and

Brian Roberts hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning off

struggling A.J. Burnett, leading the Baltimore Orioles to a rare

4-3 win over the New York Yankees on Monday.

Alex Rodriguez homered and drove in two runs to reach 100 RBIs

for the 13th straight season and record 14th time overall. He

surpassed Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jimmie Foxx, who each reached

100 RBIs 13 times.

New York lost its second in a row following a season-high,

eight-game winning streak. Baltimore had been 0-6 at Yankee Stadium

this year and had lost 17 of 19 games in the Bronx coming in, but

the AL-worst Orioles came to New York for the first time under Buck

Showalter and won their third in a row, improving to 20-13 under

their new manager.
