Orioles Vs. Yankees Final Score: Late Baltimore Error Helps New York Earn 4-3 Victory

A bases-loaded error by Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy in the seventh inning of Saturday's game allowed the Yankees to come away with a 4-3 victory over the visiting Orioles.

After being held at bay all afternoon by Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen, New York was able to plate three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning courtesy of Hardy's error. The win means the Yankees again lead the Orioles by three games in the American League East. Baltimore had won their previous 13 one-run contests.

David Phelps started for New York, but lasted just 4.2 innings, allowing three runs on three hits and six walks. The New York bullpen held the Orioles scoreless over the final 4.1 innings.

The two teams wrap their three-game weekend series on Sunday with a 1:05 p.m. ET first pitch. Baltimore's Chris Tillman is scheduled to take on New York's Phil Hughes.
