Sabathia Can't Slow Streaking Orioles

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) – Nolan Reimold hit a two-run home run and Adam Jones had a key two-run single to back the solid pitching of Jake Arrieta as Baltimore stymied New York, 6-2, in the second of three meetings at Yankee Stadium.

Nick Markakis and Ty Wigginton each had a pair of hits, scored once and drove in a run for the Birds, who have won four straight over Tampa Bay and New York, the top two teams in the AL East.

Arrieta (5-6) earned the win after holding the hosts to two runs on eight hits while walking only one and striking out three for Baltimore, which won for just a fourth time in its last 21 games in the Bronx.

CC Sabathia (19-6) was charged with six runs — five earned — on nine hits with a walk and five strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings to suffer his first loss at home since July 2, 2009 for the Yankees, who saw their lead trimmed to two games in the NL East over Tampa Bay, which is currently playing in Boston.
