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.
