BALTIMORE (AP) -- Chris Davis went 4 for 4, including his AL-leading 14th
homer, and the Baltimore Orioles got a three-run shot from Matt Wieters in a
6-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.
Nick Markakis added a solo home run for the Orioles, who took two of three from
New York to pull within three games of the first-place Yankees in the AL East.
Curtis Granderson homered, doubled and singled for New York. Needing a triple
to reach the cycle, he drew a walk in the seventh inning.
David Adams hit a ninth-inning homer for the Yankees, his second in three
games. The teams combined for 13 home runs in the series, including five in the
Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda left in the third with a bruised right calf, one
inning after he was struck in the leg by a line drive off the bat of Manny
Machado. Kuroda (6-3) allowed five runs and eight hits in two-plus innings.
