NEW YORK — The Orioles quickly fell behind, had their starting pitcher leave with an injury after three innings and looked lost against Phil Hughes.
It didn't matter.
Mark Reynolds had his second two-homer game of the series, and Baltimore pulled within two games of the American League East-leading Yankees with an 8-3 victory Sunday.
"You look at a lot of young guys in here; they don't even know they're in the middle of a playoff race, probably," Reynolds said. "Everyone in here's having fun, going out and playing hard."
Randy Wolf made his first Orioles appearance when starter Chris Tillman left with right elbow stiffness and pitched 31/3 effective innings.
Reynolds homered twice in Friday's victory, then got the Orioles on the scoreboard Sunday with a mammoth drive leading off the fifth inning. His three-run homer in the sixth finished Hughes and put Baltimore ahead 5-3.
