The Orioles left the Yankees on the road for the second straight day


Second baseman Robert Andino hit RBI single in the bottom of the tenth inning to break a tie on the board and give the Orioles a 5-4 victory against the Yankees in New York.

History repeated itself for a second day after yesterday Wednesday, the Orioles also won by 5-4 to the Yankees in the eleventh inning, in their field of Yankee Stadium, to leave the Bombers Bronxs the second straight loss having won six straight games.

Andino drove in the winning run with a single to tie it after the eighth, with the executioner for the Yankees, who are leading the Eastern Division of the American League.

The designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero homered, doubled twice and scored two runs for the Orioles, becoming the undisputed leader of the Baltimore attack team, already eliminated from the final stage.

With an "out" on the board, left fielder Nolan Reimold hit an infield hit off reliever Scott Proctor (0-1) in the tenth.

Rimold advanced to second after giving Proctor walked and scored the winning run with a grounder down the Andino, who placed the ball down the third base territory.

Reliever Clay Rapada (1-0) retired the only batter he faced in the tenth inning and got the win.

Dominican starter for the Yankees, Ivan Nova, which was praised by the team manejor Joe Girardi as a candidate for Rookie of the Year, allowed three runs in five and one third of tickets to go no-decision.

The right-hander is headed to tie a record for victories by a rookie for the Yankees, but the Orioles tied for eighth and twelfth denied him victory in a row, and the sixteenth so far this season.

His compatriot, Alfredo Simon, Baltimore opened and allowed four runs, six hits and six walks in four innings he worked from the mound.
