    Chris Davis hit a two-run homer after replacing an injured Manny Machado, and the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles beat the Yankees 11-3 Monday night to drop New York a season-high seven games out of first place.

    After Davis put the Orioles ahead in the fifth inning, Nelson Cruz connected with a man on in the seventh and Jonathan Schoop added a three-run shot in the eighth to turn the game into a rout. Cruz now has 31 homers, tied for the major league lead with rookie Jose Abreu of the White Sox.

    Machado, a 2013 All-Star third baseman, sprained his right knee in the second inning while hitting a broken-bat grounder to shortstop. He dropped on his back in the batter's box and needed help getting off the field.

    Machado will be re-examined Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury and whether a stint on the disabled list is necessary.
