Dickerson but stayed in the game. R
BALTIMORE -- No matter what the situation and regardless of whos at the plate, the Baltimore Orioles believe theyre going to win. Often, thats precisely what happens. And that is why theyre on the brink of becoming AL East champions. Steve Pearce hit an RBI double in the ninth inning and scored the game-winner on a double by Kelly Johnson to rally the Orioles past the New York Yankees 3-2 Sunday night. Any number of Orioles wins and Toronto losses totalling three will give Baltimore its first division title since 1997. Pearce and Johnson arent the most notable names on a team with Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis, but on this club, virtually everyone contributes. "Thats the beauty of a team," Jones said. "Everyone gets at-bats, everyone gets an opportunity to do something. When an opportunity arises, big bats come through." Johnson, who came to the Orioles in an Aug. 30 trade, was mobbed at second base after his game-winning hit. "Its really, really exciting," he said. "Im not going to lie. It feels really good. You want to contribute, you want to drive in runs, you want to score runs, all those things and you want to be a part of it." As Jones said, thats the beauty of this team. "We have a lot of good options on the bench," manager Buck Showalter said. "Good players execute in situations like that." The winning rally came after Brian McCann hit a tiebreaking homer off Darren ODay (5-1) in the top of the ninth. Cruz opened the bottom half with double off David Roberson (2-5). Pinch-runner Quintin Berry scored on Pearces liner into the left-field corner, and one out later, Johnson -- a former Yankee -- delivered the game-winner into the gap in right-centre. Earlier in the series, New York took a one-run lead in the 11th inning before Baltimore scored twice in the bottom half. "You act certain ways when your backs against the wall," said Jones, who had RBI double in the sixth. "The games not over with, so we just play until that last out." Martin Prado homered for the Yankees, who lost three of four to the Orioles and dropped five games behind Kansas City in the race for the second wild-card spot. "It was another tough one tonight," manager Joe Girardi said. "Just have to move on." Dellin Betances struck out two in the eighth inning to raise his total for the season to 130, tied with Mariano Rivera for most by a Yankees reliever. But Robertson was ineffective in his third straight day on the mound. "I just wasnt able to do it today. I just stunk," he said. "Its not how I felt, its just how I pitched." Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was honoured and showered with gifts before his final game at Camden Yards. The 40-year-old Jeter, who will retire after this season, went 0 for 4 and is hitless in his last 24 at-bats. His slump is indicative of the Yankees hitting woes of late. Second baseman Stephen Drew interrupted a 2-for-35 skid with a fifth-inning bunt, and New York scored only six runs in the four-game series. Orioles starter Chris Tillman gave up one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, his 19th consecutive start in which he allowed three runs or fewer. Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda limited Baltimore to one run and six hits over seven innings. TRAINERS ROOM Yankees: C Francisco Cervelli, whos missed 13 straight games with cluster headaches, could return in the next day or two.

DENVER -- The Milwaukee Brewers are on such a roll away from home not even playing imperfect baseball can stop them. Aramis Ramirez homered and drove in two runs, and the Brewers continued their road dominance with a 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. It wasnt the prettiest series win for the Brewers, who gave up 19 runs in the three games and allowed 15 hits on Sunday. But they found a way to win all weekend. Now they head back to Milwaukee for a seven-game homestand, including four against Colorado starting Thursday. "We play pretty good at home, too," Ramirez said. "Weve played pretty well on the road but youre always looking forward to go home. We just finished a great road trip and were looking for a great homestand." Milwaukee swept the Rockies to finish 6-1 on a road trip that started in Arizona. The Brewers 27-15 record and .643 winning percentage away from home is the best in the majors. Oakland (.622) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (.615) are the only other teams close to matching Milwaukees success. Kyle Lohse (9-2), who allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings to win consecutive starts for the first time in a month. "It was a great road trip, certainly with the wins," manager Ron Roenicke said. "We made some mistakes, there were plays we didnt make the right way. If we continue to win we have to play cleaner baseball." Colorado couldnt take advantage when Milwaukee was sloppy. The Rockies squandered several scoring opportunities and missed a chance to rally in the ninth when an overthrow led to the first out of the inning. With Milwaukee leading 6-4, Corey Dickerson led off the bottom of the inning with a triple off the wall in right. The throw from the centerfielder Carlos Gomez got past Ramirez at third and Dickerson hesitated before heading down the baseline. He fell halfway to home, giving Ramirez enough time to throw him out at the plate. "He was going to score on that play," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "His legs gave out and he stumbled there between third and home." Wilin Rosario followed with his eighth homer of the season, but Francisco Rodriguez settled down to get his 25th save in 27 chances. "I guess when you are good things go good," Ramirez said, "If that guy doesnt fall, Rosario hits the homer and its a tie ballgame.dddddddddddd." Rodriguez tweaked his left ankle on an earlier pitch to Dickerson but stayed in the game. Ryan Braun also rolled his ankle going back for a ball in right field but kept playing. "Its not serious but I dont know about tomorrow," Roenicke said of Braun. Rosario finished with four hits and had three RBIs for Colorado, which has lost six straight and fell to 6-14 in June. After winning 16 of their first 23 home games the Rockies have lost 10 of 13 at Coors Field, where they have been swept twice in June. Rockies rookie right-hander Tyler Matzek (1-2) was roughed up in the second before setting down 11 straight. He ran into trouble after retiring the first two batters of the fifth and the game tied at 3-3. With runners on first and second, Jonathan Lucroy singled to right, scoring Rickie Weeks from second. Lucroy was caught in a rundown between first and second and Braun was able to score from third to make it 5-3. "Theyre a good-hitting team," Matzek said. "I just tried to pound the zone and just kept leaving it up." The Rockies made it a one-run game in the eighth on Drew Stubbs RBI triple to right but Lyle Overbay led off the ninth with a pinch-hit home run to restore the two-run cushion. Gomez extended his hitting streak to 18 games with a leadoff single in the second and Ramirez followed with a two-run homer, his 10th, to make it 2-0. Consecutive singles put runners on first and third for Milwaukee, and a double-play grounder by Lohse scored Khris Davis to make it 3-0. The Rockies rallied to tie it with a run in the second and two in the third on Rosarios double to right-centre. NOTES: Sundays win was Roenickes 300th as a manager. ... Gomez has reached base in 35 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the majors. ... Rockies C Michael McKenry will leave the team Monday for a three-day bereavement leave. Jackson Williams will serve as Rosarios backup for the series against St. Louis. ... Rockies RHP Christian Bergman will have an MRI on his left hand Monday, head trainer Keith Dugger said. Bergman still has swelling from getting hit by a line drive on the base of the hand during Fridays start. ... The Rockies recalled RHP Rob Scahill from Triple-A. ' ' '
