Manny Machado homered and had four RBI, Nolan Reimold hit a two-run drive and the Baltimore Orioles overcame a milestone achievement by Alex Rodriguez in a 9-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday night.
David Lough added a solo shot for the Orioles, who have won six straight to climb over .500 (31-30) for the first time since May 4. Baltimore has amassed 20 runs and 31 hits in the first two games of the series and will vie for a sweep on Sunday.
Rodriguez hit a two-run homer to join Hank Aaron as the only members of the exclusive 2,000-RBI club. The sixth-inning drive off Bud Norris lifted A-Rod's career RBI total to 2,001. Hank Aaron ranks first on the career list with 2,297.
It was the 666th career home run for Rodriguez, fourth on baseball's all-time list behind Babe Ruth, Aaron and Barry Bonds.
