Swept: Orioles knock Yankees into fourth place

Halfway through the season, the Yankees are now a fourth-place team. Tonight’s 4-2 loss to the Orioles dumped the Yankees a half game below Tampa Bay in the American League East standings. The Yankees now two games ahead of last-place Toronto and six-and-a-half behind first-place Boston. The Orioles are hitting the ball the way the Yankees used to. They lead the Majors in home runs, and tonight they hit three solo shots; one each by Manny Machado, Chris Davis and Nate McLouth. Robinson Cano’s 17th homer of the year temporarily pulled the Yankees within a run — and continued his strong performance here in Baltimore — but the Orioles tacked on an insurance run in the seventh and handed the Yankees their third five-game losing streak in the past five weeks.
