(Newser) – The Yankees snapped a three-game losing streak with a 10-6 outing against Baltimore yesterday. A struggling Johnny Damon came up big for New York, posting three hits, four runs, and one spectacular catch in left field that stymied a fourth-inning Orioles rally. Alex Rodriguez came up empty in his bid for home run 500, going 0-2 with an intentional walk in the seventh.

A-Rod is now 0-12 since smashing number 499 against the Royals last week. Starter Chien-Ming Wang improves to 12-5, handing New York a crucial win in a hotly contested wildcard race. Meanwhile, Derek Jeter recorded his 7,218th Yankee at-bat, jumping ahead of Babe Ruth on the club's all-time list. (Read more New York Yankees stories.)
