BALTIMORE — The injuries keep mounting for the Yankees, who keep finding ways to win in spite of a roster shuffle that will likely continue to the final day of the season.
Alfonso Soriano hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning, and New York rallied past the Orioles 7-5 Tuesday night to end a six-game losing streak at Camden Yards.
Mark Reynolds also homered for the Yankees, who won for the second time in six games to bolster their postseason hopes.
"With the punch that we have now, you feel you can come back," manager Joe Girardi said.
The Yankees have been dealing with injuries all year, and the trend continued. Alex Rodriguez felt tightness in his left hamstring, catcher Austin Romine received a concussion and starter Ivan Nova was removed early because of a sore right triceps.
And still, the Yankees won after falling into a three-run hole. Soriano and Reynolds launched the comeback with solo homers in the sixth off Baltimore starter Miguel Gonzalez.
