After a stretch in which the Yankees continuously seemed to find ways to lose games, they have now rattled off a season-high six straight wins. They fell behind the Baltimore Orioles early on Saturday afternoon, but rallied back for a 5-4 win, with Andy Pettitte earning his first victory since June 8.

Chris Davis got the O’s started with a two-run homer in the first, and Alexis Casilla extended the lead to 3-0 with an RBI double in the second. The Yankees cut it to 3-2 in the bottom of the second with an RBI single from Luis Cruz and a sac fly from Eduardo Nunez. Taylor Teagarden made it 4-2 Baltimore with an RBI single in the fourth, but RBI singles from Ichiro Suzuki and Robinson Cano tied the game at 4-4 in the fifth. Nunez came through with the winning RBI in the sixth, as he went 2 for 3 with a run scored and two RBI in his first game back since coming off of the DL.

Pettitte allowed four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings of work. He allowed nine hits and no walks while striking out four.
