Recap: NY Yankees vs. Baltimore

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Eduardo Nunez made an immediate impact in his return to the lineup, going 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored during the New York Yankees' 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

Nunez was activated from the 60-day disabled list prior to the game. The shortstop appeared in his first game since early May due to an oblique strain. He didn't bat much during his rehabilitation assignment.

"Nuney is kind of a free spirit. I don't think he thought a lot about not having a lot of at-bats," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Robinson Cano, Ichiro Suzuki and Luis Cruz each had an RBI for the Yankees, who have won a season-high six straight games.

New York starter Andy Pettitte (6-6) allowed four runs -- three earned -- on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Chris Davis hit his league-leading 33rd homer of the season for the Orioles, who have dropped three in a row. He has already matched his home run and RBI (85) totals from 2012.

Chris Tillman (10-3) saw a career-high seven-decision winning streak come to an end. The right-hander gave up five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 frames.

The Orioles got on the board in the first. Adam Jones hit a two-out single and scored on Davis' blast to center.

Baltimore tacked on another run in the second. Nolan Reimold reached base on an infield single, advanced to second on Pettitte's throwing error and raced home on Alexi Casilla's double down the left-field line.

New York got two runs back in the bottom half of the frame. Travis Hafner walked and Zoilo Almonte and Lyle Overbay singled to load the bases with no outs. Cruz's RBI single to left and Nunez's sacrifice fly cut the gap to 3-2.

Taylor Teagarden's RBI single in the fourth gave the Orioles a two-run lead. J.J. Hardy scored on the play after leading off the inning with a double.

"Anytime you're leading early in the game, you expect to continue to lead, or at least put up some more runs," Davis said.

The Yankees put two runs on the board in the fifth to tie the game. Nunez and Chris Stewart hit back-to-back singles before they each moved up a base on a sacrifice bunt. Suzuki and Cano followed with consecutive RBI singles.

New York took the lead during its next at-bat. Overbay singled to right-center field, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Nunez's base hit up the middle.

Mariano Rivera tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up his 29th save of the season.

The fact that we look to Roger Goodell and the NFL to take the lead on any number of social issues should say more about us as a society than the commissioner or the league he lords over.
