BALTIMORE (AP) --- Gary Snchez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to
cap a New York rally fueled by Baltimore gaffes, and the Yankees pulled out a
10-7 victory Monday night.
Gleyber Torres homered twice for the Yankees, who trailed 6-1 after four
innings and 7-3 after six.
At that point, the Orioles fulfilled their stature as the team with the worst
record in the AL. They threw to the wrong base, missed popups and were
outscored 7-0 over the final three innings.
New York scored in the seventh on an overthrow by left fielder Dwight Smith
Jr., who fell for a fake tag-up on third base. In the ninth, right fielder Joey
Rickard threw to the wrong base on a single, Smith heaved the ball past the
plate on Aaron Hicks' tying sacrifice fly, catcher Pedro Severino misjudged a
foul pop that preceded a two-out walk to Luke Voit and Snchez connected off
Mychal Givens (0-1).
Zach Britton (2-0) worked the eighth and Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his
Hanser Alberto and Renato Nez homered for the Orioles.

innings, but New York's comeback got him a no-decision.

homer in 17 straight games. They've won 11 of 12 overall and eight in a row
against the White Sox.
Peacock (5-2) allowed two hits in five innings. Ryan Pressly pitched a
scoreless eighth to extend his MLB-record streak of appearances without
allowing a run to 40, and Roberto Osuna gave up a hit in the ninth, preserving
the shutout and earning his 12th save.

years, and slumping Todd Frazier had a run-scoring single to help New York

four-game series between the NL East and Central leaders.
Hctor Neris (1-1) worked a scoreless ninth. Adam Morgan struck out Jason
Heyward leading off the 10th, and Juan Nicasio gave up a single to Albert
Almora Jr. before Daniel Descalso grounded into a double play, giving Nicasio
