Recap


Orioles 7, Yankees 1: J.J. Hardy belted a two-run home run and Chris Davis had three hits and a solo shot to spark visiting Baltimore's rout and deliver manager Buck Showalter his 1,000th career win.

Orioles starter Brian Matusz (1-3) threw 6 1/3 solid innings to halt a 12-game losing streak. He won for the first time since June 6, 2011, and avoided matching the franchise record for most consecutive defeats.

The 24-year-old left-hander scattered six hits and allowed only a solo homer by Curtis Granderson in the first inning as Baltimore snapped a four-game losing streak against the Yankees this season.

Orioles designated hitter Nick Johnson ended a season-opening 0-for-29 skid with an RBI double in the eight inning. He was also part of a pivotal rally in the sixth when New York left fielder Eduardo Nunez misplayed his fly ball, allowing two runs to score for a 6-1 lead.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter went 3-for-5 for his major league-leading 13th consecutive multi-hit game and lifted his batting average to .400.

Phil Hughes (1-4), who served up the homers to Hardy and Davis, allowed four runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Granderson homered for the third time in four games, moving him into a tie for the American League lead with nine.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Showalter, who earned his first victory with the Yankees in 1992, became the 58th manager to win 1,000 games. ... Baltimore LF Nolan Reimold sat out Tuesday's game and will miss Wednesday's series finale due to a bulging disk in his back. Reimold, who is batting .313, had a 14-game hitting streak snapped in Monday's loss. ... New York 3B Alex Rodriguez had two hits, including his first bunt single since 2004. ... Yankees LHP Andy Pettitte will make at least one more start in the minor leagues. Pettitte testified in the Roger Clemens perjury trial Tuesday, saying "Roger had mentioned to me that he had taken HGH (human growth hormone)." ... Yankees RHP Michael Pineda underwent season-ending surgery to repair a a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
