Recap


Orioles 11, Yankees 5: Chris Davis belted his first career grand slam to highlight a seven-run second inning as visiting Baltimore overcame an early five-run deficit to throttle New York.

Nick Markakis launched a two-run homer and Wilson Betemit and Omar Quintanilla drove in a pair apiece for the Orioles, who won their third straight to move within 5 1/2 games of the slumping Yankees in the American League East. New York has dropped four in a row and nine of its last 12 contests.

Chris Tillman (4-1) rebounded from a brutal five-run first inning to post his third straight victory. Tillman settled down to pitch four scoreless frames while striking out three.

After Robinson Cano's two-run homer highlighted the Yankees' fast start, Baltimore ignited its offense at the expense of Ivan Nova (10-5). Mark Reynolds' ground-rule double put the Orioles on the board before Quintanilla extended his hitting streak to seven games with a two-run single.

Davis capped the uprising by depositing a breaking ball from Nova off the top of the wall and into the bullpen in left-center field. The blast was Davis' 18th of the season - and third in six games.

Betemit added to Nova's woes with an RBI double in the third inning and a run-scoring single in the fifth. Nova's night ended after yielding a career-worst nine runs on 10 hits in five innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira received a cortisone shot in his left wrist after an MRI came back negative. Teixeira aggravated the injury while making a play in the first during Monday's series opener. ... Prior to the trade deadline, New York acquired 3B Casey McGehee from Pittsburgh for reliever Chad Qualls. ...Baltimore's Lew Ford collected his first major-league hit since 2007 when he doubled in the third inning. ... Ichiro Suzuki extended his hitting streak to eight games with a single in the sixth inning.
