Yankees 7, Orioles 4: Burnett Gets Third Victory

The New York Yankees will take the kind of effort they got Tuesday night from A.J. Burnett all season long. Burnett (3-0) pitched six shutout innings before faltering in the seventh as the Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 7-4, at Yankee Stadium.

Alex Rodriguez stakes the Yankees to a 3-0 lead with a three-run first-inning home run, and the Yankees scored six run in 12/3 innings against Baltimore starter Chris Tillman. Rodriguez is hitting .355 with four home runs and eight RBI already this season. Jorge Posada also homered for the Yankees.

Burnett surrendered a pair of two-run homers to Matt Wieters and Brian Roberts in the seventh inning, but David Robertson, Rafael Soriano and Mariano Rivera finished up for New York.
