BALTIMORE — Wei-Yin Chen pitched seven four-hit innings, Adam Jones homered and the Orioles beat CC Sabathia and the Yankees 5-2 Tuesday night.

J.J. Hardy drove in two runs for Baltimore, which split the two-game series, improved to 1-4 at home against New York and remained tied for first place in the AL East with the Rays.

Making his seventh major-league start, Chen, 26, a Taiwan native, took a shutout into the seventh and retired 10 straight before Robinson Cano's leadoff double.

Two outs later, Curtis Granderson hit an opposite-field homer barely over the 7-foot wall in left. A fan in a Yankees jacket knocked his glove into the mitt of outfielder Xavier Avery.

It was only the third homer yielded by Chen in 44 innings this season.

Chen came out to start the eighth but was pulled by manager Buck Showalter when the Yankees sent up a pinch-hitter. That enabled the Orioles fans in the crowd of 24,055 to give the left-hander a standing ovation.
