Recap


Yankees 6, Orioles 4 (10): Travis Hafner tied the game in the ninth inning with a solo home run and Vernon Wells delivered a go-ahead, ground-rule RBI double in the 10th as New York sent Baltimore to its seventh straight home loss.

The Orioles handed a 4-3 lead in the ninth to beleaguered closer Jim Johnson, who retired Robinson Cano to begin the frame. But the reliever fell behind 3-1 to Hafner and the 12-year veteran put a charge into Johnson’s fastball, sending it into the stands in left-center for the Yankees’ fourth solo home run of the game.

David Robertson (3-0) worked around a two-out single by Adam Jones to send the game into extra innings and Wells put New York in front for good with his double off Pedro Strop (0-2). Hafner added an insurance run with a RBI single while Mariano Rivera worked a flawless 10th for his 17th save in as many chances.

The Yankees took an early lead when Cano belted his 13th home run in the first and David Adams tallied his first major-league homer one inning later. Chris Davis tied Cano for the American League lead in home runs in the bottom half of the second before the Orioles drew even on Nick Markakis’ RBI single in the fifth.

Lyle Overbay put the Yankees back in front in the fifth with a solo blast off reliever Troy Patton, but the Orioles got RBI doubles from Markakis and J.J. Hardy to end CC Sabathia’s night after 6 1/3 innings. After a scoreless eighth from Darren O’Day, Johnson blew his third straight save on Hafner’s solo shot.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Sabathia allowed four runs and a season-high 11 hits, giving up at least 10 hits in consecutive outings for the first time since Aug. 12-18, 2011. ...  Cano, who went 1-for-3, is batting .338 with 25 home runs and 91 RBIs in 139 career games against the Orioles. … The Yankees improved to 19-0 when scoring first.
