Yankees go deep and pull ahead

The Yankees were back to doing what they do best tonight, hitting three home runs to beat the Orioles 8-5 and regain sole possession of first place in the division. Russell Martin’s three-run homer put the Yankees in front in the fourth inning, Steve Pearce added a two-run homer later in the fourth, and Alex Rodriguez went deep in the fifth, his first home run since the day before he broke his hand in Seattle. Starter Phil Hughes delivered six strong innings. He gave up a three-run homer to Adam Jones — predictable for a home run pitcher against a home run lineup — but Hughes¬†otherwise kept the Orioles in check for his 14th win of the season. After his horrible April, Hughes now leads the Yankees in wins.
