South Korea’s Kim Hyun-soo and teammate Mark Trumbo had three hits apiece, while Chris Davis homered to lift the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-5 win over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
After the Yankees used three home runs to build a 5-2 lead, Baltimore turned it around against Nathan Eovaldi and the New York bullpen. The Orioles scored three runs in the sixth inning to pull even, then used two singles and a run-scoring groundout by Manny Machado to go ahead in the seventh.
Kim scored a run in the sixth, set up the tiebreaking tally in the seventh and lifting his batting average to .391, earning high praise from Orioles manager Buck Showalter.
“He’s been right in the middle of just about everything for us, it seems,” Showalter said.
Mychal Givens (5-0) pitched 1-1/3 innings of relief, while Zach Britton worked the ninth for his 16th save.
Carlos Beltran, Alex Rodriguez and Austin Romine homered for the Yankees, who have lost seven of 10.

Weaver (5-4) allowed six hits, struck out five and walked one over six innings. He gave up consecutive homers to Starling Marte and Jung leading off the second, but did not concede another run. Weaver had been 1-4 with a 6.43 ERA in his previous six starts.
Cole Calhoun, Johnny Giavotella, Yunel Escobar, Mike Trout, Carlos Perez and Shane Robinson each had two of the Angels’ 14 hits. Los Angeles scored in each of the first four innings.
