Orioles 4, Yankees 3 (11 Innings): Baltimore Rallies Past New York

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Luke Scott homered off Mariano Rivera in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game, then doubled to start the 11th and scored the winning run on a single by Ty Wigginton, as the Baltimore Orioles salvaged the finale of a three-game series against the New York Yankees with a 4-3 win at Camden Yards.

Rivera came on in the ninth and tried to earn the save for Andy Pettitte in the New York lefty's return from a two-month stint on the disabled list, but Scott hit the ace reliever's first pitch over the high scoreboard in right field to tie the game at 3-3.

The Orioles worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the top of the 11th when New York's Lance Berkman bounced into a double play, and Scott led off the home half with a bloop double to left off David Robertson (4-5). Wigginton followed with a drive to right-center field to score Scott with the winning run.

Despite the loss, the Yankees remained in first place in the AL East after the Rays dropped a 6-3 decision against the Angels. New York still has a lead of one-half game over Tampa Bay, as the two clubs open a four-game series on Monday at Yankee Stadium.
