McLouth homers as Orioles rally past Yankees
Nate McLouth hit a tiebreaking homer off CC Sabathia in the seventh inning, Manny Machado had two RBIs and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the New York Yankees 4-3 Friday night.
Orioles rookie Kevin Gausman (1-3) earned his first major league victory, allowing three hits over 4 1-3 innings as part of a relief crew that blanked the Yankees over the final six innings.
Gausman followed for Rule 5 draftee T.J. McFarland, who yielded three runs in 2 2-3 innings in his first major league start.
Tommy Hunter got the final six outs for his second save. Orioles manager Buck Showalter opted against using closer Jim Johnson, who has blown five save opportunities this season.
Sabathia (8-6) took a no-hitter and a 3-0 lead into the sixth.
