Orioles stumble late as Yankees rally for 7-3 win

NEW YORK (AP) - On the verge of assuring at least a tiebreaker for a playoff berth, the Baltimore Orioles stumbled.

Tyler Austin tied the score with a seventh-inning home run, Austin Romine and Brett Gardner drove in two runs each in the eighth and the New York Yankees rallied from a three-run deficit to beat the Orioles 7-3 Saturday.

Baltimore (88-73) and Toronto (87-73) lead for the AL's two wild cards, with Detroit (86-73) a half-game behind the Blue Jays and Seattle (86-74) a half-game back of the Tigers. The Blue Jays, Tigers and Mariners all played Saturday night, and because the Blue Jays beat Baltimore 10-9 in the season series, the Orioles may have cost themselves their chance to host the wild-card game.
