MLB roundup: Orioles hit 6 HRs, win 10-6 over Yanks
September 6, 2012
BALTIMORE – Mark Reynolds hit two of Baltimore’s season-high six home runs, and the Orioles climbed back into a first-place tie with the Yankees in the AL East by defeating New York 10-6 Thursday night before a euphoric sellout crowd at Camden Yards.
Adam Jones’ leadoff homer in the eighth inning off David Robertson (1-6) put Baltimore ahead 7-6 after the Yankees rallied from a five-run deficit in the top half. Matt Wieters followed with a single and Reynolds hit a drive into the left-field seats. Chris Davis then slammed the first pitch from Derek Lowe over the right-field wall.
MIAMI – Josh Johnson pitched seven solid innings and ended his career-worst four-game losing skid, leading the Miami Marlins past the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Thursday.
Johnson (8-11) allowed two runs and four hits while striking out seven. He won for the first time since Aug. 3 at Washington.
Greg Dobbs drove in two runs for Miami. The Marlins had 12 hits, three by Donovan Solano.
The Brewers lost for just the fourth time in 17 games. A day earlier, they pulled within 6 1/2 games of the second NL wild-card spot.

WASHINGTON – Adam LaRoche added to his home run tear with a two-run shot and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 9-2 in a fight-filled game Thursday night to finish a lopsided four-game sweep.
The trouble started with a testy exchange between Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk and Nationals third base coach Bo Porter in the fifth inning. Quirk shouted from the dugout toward third base and Porter walked over to the railing, jawing and pointing his finger. The benches and bullpens emptied, but there was no pushing or shoving. Quirk was ejected before play resumed.
