Orioles return the favor, blank Yanks

BALTIMORE — Pedro Alvarez drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Orioles finally broke through, beating the Yankees 1-0 Thursday night.

A day after getting shut out by the Yankees, the Orioles managed only five hits in eight innings against Masahiro Tanaka. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman did even better, limiting New York to three hits through eight innings.

Hyun Soo Kim began the Baltimore 10th with an infield hit off Johnny Barbato. Kim took third on a single by Jonathan Schoop. Nolan Reimold pinch-ran for Kim and Andrew Miller relieved Barbato.

Alvarez hit a soft fly to center, and Reimold easily beat Jacoby Ellsbury's throw to the plate.

Baltimore's Zach Britton gave up a leadoff walk in the top of the 10th, then struck out the next three.

Gausman became the first Orioles starting pitcher to complete eight innings this season.

"That's a lot of fun," Gausman said of the battle with Tanaka. "I kept telling myself in the dugout, 'If he's not going to give in, I'm not going to give in.' "

The Yankees finished up a 2-7 trip. They managed four hits in the game and fell to 0-6-1 in their past seven series dating to September. Manager Joe Girardi was ejected by third-base umpire Chris Guccione in the fourth — he appeared to argue about a balk.
