Recap: Baltimore vs. NY Yankees

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Brendan Ryan singled and scored on a wild pitch in the ninth inning Thursday night, lifting the Yankees to a 6-5 win over the Orioles in the finale of a four-game series.

The Yankees found themselves suddenly needing a run after Danny Valencia's three-run homer tied the game for Baltimore in the eighth inning -- the end of a rally that started with two outs and nobody on base.

Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer and Curtis Granderson had a solo shot for the Yankees, who won the last three games of the four-game series and remained one game behind Tampa Bay for the second American League wild card.

"We need to continue to win and we need to continue to take series if we want to play in October," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson (3-8) threw the wild pitch with Alex Rodriguez batting that scored Ryan with the go-ahead run and Mariano Rivera (6-2) threw a perfect ninth for the Yankees.

The Orioles went 4-4 on an eight-game homestand. Nick Markakis hit a solo home run in the loss.

Ryan, acquired from Seattle this week, reached second base when Johnson threw into the outfield on a force attempt after Chris Stewart's bunt. Granderson moved both runners up on a bunt before Johnson's wild pitch scored Ryan.

"It's frustrating but our guys battled back. I'm proud of them," said Orioles manager Buck Showalter.

Yankees starter Phil Hughes went three-plus innings, giving up three hits and one run while striking out three. Wei-Yin Chen allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.

Baltimore's three-run rally in the eighth came against David Robertson.

Reynolds, the former Oriole, hit his 200th career home run in the second inning after Eduardo Nunez led off with a single.

In the third, Vernon Wells drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single to make it 4-0 Yankees. Manny Machado's RBI single got the Orioles on the board in the bottom of the inning.

Granderson's sixth homer of the season made it 5-1 in the seventh inning but Markakis' 10th of the year leading off the bottom of the inning got the Orioles within three again.
