[June 21, 2014]  Yankees 5, Orioles 3: Carlos Beltran capped a four-run, ninth-inning rally with a two-out, three-run homer as host New York extended its winning streak to four games.

Brian McCann recorded two hits and an RBI while Mark Teixeira also drove in a run for the Yankees, who have won eight of their last 10 contests. David Huff (1-0) picked up the victory despite allowing a run in the top of the ninth.

Brett Gardner led off the bottom half with a single and Teixeira drew a two-out walk from Zach Britton (3-1) to keep New York alive. McCann cut the deficit to 3-2 with his base hit and Beltran followed by drilling a 3-1 offering into the seats in left field.

Steve Pearce collected two hits and two RBIs while Adam Jones plated a run for the Orioles, who are 2-2 on their six-game road trip. Ubaldo Jimenez saw his winless streak reach eight starts despite yielding just one run in 5 2/3 frames.

Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Nick Hundley ignited a rally with a leadoff double. Pearce forged a 1-1 tie with an RBI double and, after Jones followed with a run-scoring single, drove in another run in the ninth with a base hit to make it 3-1.
