Orioles Rally Past Yankees 5-3 For 2-Game Sweep
BALTIMORE — Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones homered in a four-run eighth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the New York Yankees 5-3 Wednesday night for a two-game sweep of the rain-shortened series.
Limited to three hits through seven innings, Baltimore trailed 2-1 before Schoop tied it with a drive off Dellin Betances. Shawn Kelley (2-4) then gave up a single and a walk before Jones hit a shot into the bullpen area beyond the center-field wall.
As the ball dropped over the fence for his 23rd home run, Jones raised his right arm in triumph as he rounded first base.
Darren O’Day (4-1) worked the eighth and Zach Britton gave up a run in the ninth en route to his 25th save.
It was the eighth straight series win for the AL East-leading Orioles, who increased their margin over the fading third-place Yankees to eight games.
