Orioles tack on another run, lead 3-1

The Orioles had the Yankees right where they wanted them, leading by a single run in the late innings. But they got greedy and scored another one, giving them a two-run cushion. This isn't Orioles baseball, everyone. They're like Icarus, flying too close to the sun on wings made of insurance runs.

But they ain't giving the run back. In the sixth inning, Matt Wieters led off with a double -- a low liner that was quick enough to get into the gap. Mark Reynolds followed with a sharp grounder through the right side that scored Wieters without a throw. With a runner on first, no outs, and a run in, the Yankees bullpen began to stir.

But Jim Thome struck out, and Manny Machado bounced a first-pitch change-up into a 1-4-3 double play to get out of the inning.

The run makes it a little harder for the Orioles to reach extra innings, too, so things aren't looking good for the guys in orange.
