The rally comes up short: O’s fall to Yankees in 11 innings

On a day the Orioles rallied from three runs down to tie the Yankees when they were down to their last out, they still lost the game, falling 6-3 in 11 innings. New York wins both games here in the rain-shortened series.

The Orioles fall to 8-12 and are just 2-11 over the last 13 games.

Robinson Cano, who had been 0-for-4, doubled to lead off the 11th off Jason Berken and then stole third base when catcher Matt Wieters tried to gun him down straying off the bag at second. After a strikeout and intentional walk, a Russell Martin RBI on an infield hit gave New York the 4-3 lead

It became a 5-3 game on Derek Jeter’s slow dribber to third that went for another infield safety. When Curtis Granderson singled off Brian Roberts glove, the Yankees had a 6-3 lead.

Down 3-0 the Orioles rallied. Mark Reynolds’ two-run homer in the seventh made it 3-2 and snapped an 0-for-22 stretch for Reynolds. The Orioles tied it in the ninth against Mariano Rivera on Roberts’ two-out RBI double.

The Orioles fall to 2-4 on this homestand and to 0-4 on the year versus the Yankees. The Orioles have scored three runs or less nine times over the 2-11, 13-game stretch and 11 times on the season, going 1-10 in those games.
