The Orioles took two of three from the Yankees in New York for the third time this season, crushing the Bombers 8-3 on Sunday afternoon.
Down 2-0 early, the Birds battled back and took the lead for good with a four-run sixth inning. Mark Reynolds homered twice for the second time this series, becoming the first player to accomplish the feat since David Ortiz in 2003. It was the first time since 1976 that the O's won all three series in New York's stadium.
The O's are now 7-7 against the Yankees this season, and the O's host New York for the final four regular-season contests next week. The Birds went into the Bronx three games behind the Bombers but left just two games back, and were oh so close to sweeping the home team.
The O's head to Canada to take on the last-place Jays for a three-game set starting Monday afternoon. Joe Saunders is slated to make his second start as an Oriole.
