BALTIMORE -- Aaron Judge hit a tying home run, Starlin Castro's RBI single keyed a four-run ninth inning, and the New York Yankees rallied to defeat the Baltimore Orioles 7-3 Sunday and avert a three-game sweep.
It was the first loss of the season for the Orioles, who started the day as the only unbeaten team in the majors at 4-0. After pulling off comeback victories in the first two games of the series, Baltimore blew a three-run lead in the finale.
New York avoided its first 1-5 start since 1989.
Ronald Torreyes cut the gap to 3-2 with a two-out, two-run triple in the sixth, Judge homered in the eighth and the Yankees completed the turnaround against Darren O'Day (0-1) in the ninth (see full recap).
Angels stun Mariners with 7-run comeback in 9th inning
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Albert Pujols hit his 592nd career homer and a tying two-run single in the ninth inning before Cliff Pennington's drive to the wall capped the Los Angeles Angels' rally from a six-run deficit for a 10-9 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Pennington's single drove in Mike Trout to end a preposterous comeback by the Angels, who trailed 8-1 in the eighth and 9-3 before Pujols homered to lead off the ninth against Casey Fien.
Yunel Escobar trimmed Seattle's lead with a two-out, two-run double off closer Edwin Diaz (0-1), who gave up three hits. Diaz also walked Kole Calhoun and Trout before Pujols and Pennington delivered back-to-back singles.
Robinson Cano had a three-run homer and a two-run double for the Mariners, who fell to 1-6 in miserable fashion.
Andrew Bailey (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth (see full recap).
Diamondback sweep Indians to match best start since 2000
PHOENIX -- Patrick Corbin threw six scoreless innings, Chris Owings homered and had three hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians with a 3-2 victory Sunday.
The win improved the Diamondbacks to 6-1, matching the best seven-game start in franchise history, set in 2000.
Cleveland's Corey Kluber (0-1) scattered eight hits in six innings, allowing three runs, two earned.
The Indians managed just seven runs in the series, and both their runs Sunday were unearned.
Fernando Rodney earned his second save in a dramatic ninth. With Cleveland down 3-1, Yan Gomes reached on third baseman Jake Lamb's throwing error and scored on Abraham Almonte's one-out single. Carlos Santana nearly gave Cleveland the lead when he flew out to the wall in front of the swimming pool in right field.
Rodney fanned Francisco Lindor to end the game (see full recap).
