Orioles rally to beat Yankees 3-2

The Associated Press

BALTIMORE (AP) Steve Pearce doubled in a ninth-inning run and scored the game-winner on a double by Kelly Johnson as the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-2 Sunday night to inch closer to the AL East title.

Any number of Orioles wins and Toronto losses totaling three will give Baltimore its first division title since 1997.

The winning rally came after Brian McCann hit a tiebreaking homer off Darren O'Day (5-1) in the top of the ninth.

Nelson Cruz opened the bottom half with double off David Roberson (2-5). Pinch-runner Quintin Berry scored on Pearce's liner into the left-field corner, and one out later, Johnson a former Yankee delivered the game-winner into the gap in right-center.

Baltimore celebrated its seventh win in eight games by crowding around Johnson at second base.
