Orioles notch 3rd straight shutout of Yankees, 2-0
BALTIMORE (AP) Kevin Gausman outpitched CC Sabathia for the second time in seven days, Adam Jones homered and the Baltimore Orioles got their third straight shutout against the New York Yankees, 2-0 on Saturday night.
Gausman (7-10) allowed two hits and two walks over six innings to win his fourth straight start. He struck out eight and permitted only one runner past second base.
The right-hander threw seven shutout innings in New York last Sunday and is 2-1 with an 0.80 ERA in five starts against the Yankees this season.
Zach Britton, the third Baltimore reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 40th save in 40 opportunities.
The victory moved the third-place Orioles within two games of the top spot in the AL East.
Sabathia (8-12) gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings. All it got him was another loss against the Orioles, the third in a row since mid-July.
