Baltimore Orioles rally for 6-3 win against New York Yankees

RAMON Urias had three hits, including a two-run homer, to help the Baltimore Orioles rally for a 6-3 win against the visiting New York Yankees on Saturday night.

Cedric Mullins had two hits and two RBIs. Jorge Mateo had two hits and scored two runs for the Orioles, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit against All-Star right-hander Gerrit Cole to win for the 12th time in the past 15 games.

Baltimore starter Jordan Lyles allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings. He struck out two and walked two.

Bryan Baker, Cionel Perez (5-1) and Felix Bautista each threw scoreless innings of relief before Jorge Lopez worked the ninth for his 18th save in 22 opportunities.

Cole (9-3) allowed four runs (three earned) and nine hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked two.

Aaron Judge had four hits and two RBIs, Matt Carpenter homered, and Kyle Higashioka and DJ LeMahieu each had two hits for the Yankees.

Cole had thrown 102 pitches when he came out for the seventh and gave up a leadoff double to Urias. Cole then got ahead of Mateo, but he dumped a single into center to tie the score 3-3.

Albert Abreu then replaced Cole and his errant pickoff throw allowed Mateo to move from first to third. Mullins followed with a sacrifice fly to give Baltimore its first lead, 4-3.

Urias gave the Orioles some cushion when he blasted a two-run homer with two outs in the eighth to make it 6-3.

Judge had an RBI double in the first inning for a 1-0 lead.

Carpenter, who came in 1-for-15 in his career against Lyles, led off the second with a homer to right field for a 2-0 lead.

Judge delivered again in the fourth when he dropped a pop fly into shallow center to score another run and make it 3-0.

Cole retired the first two batters in the fifth before Mateo singled, stole second and came home on a single by Mullins to make it 3-1. — Reuters
