NEW YORK -- A day after being shut out on three singles, J. Nelson Briles .J. Hardy and the Baltimore Orioles got blanked for six innings Sunday on what was shaping up as a lost weekend. "We were a little flat. We could all see it, we could all feel it," Hardy said. That all changed in a hurry. Hardy and Adam Jones hit three-run homers during a seven-run burst in the seventh as Baltimore suddenly broke loose, jolting the New York Yankees 7-3 to avert a sweep in a matchup of wild-card contenders. "Hopefully, it jump-starts us in September," Hardy said. The Orioles rallied against Andy Pettitte and a faltering bullpen. Michael Morse lined a leadoff single to begin the comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Acquired from Seattle on Friday, he got two hits in his Baltimore debut. "We just needed a little spark there," Morse said. Hardys shot against Shawn Kelley (4-2) glanced off the glove of right fielder Curtis Granderson and put the Orioles ahead 4-3. After reliever Boone Logan gave up a bunt single and walk, Jones homered to dead centre field came against Joba Chamberlain. "It was tough today. A chance for us to sweep and it is completely on me," Kelley said. The seven runs matched the Orioles biggest inning of the season. It also tied the most allowed by the Yankees in an inning this year. "We needed it big," Jones said. "Things hadnt fallen into place." The Orioles won for the second time in six games on a road trip that includes three more games at Cleveland.

Brett Gardner doubled twice and drew a bases-loaded walk for the Yankees. But Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter each struck out three times and Alfonso Soriano was thrown out at first on a sensational play by charging third baseman Manny Machado. Pettitte has beaten Baltimore 29 times in the regular season and playoffs, and seemed to be cruising through six innings. He had walked none, worked around five singles and wasnt in trouble. But Morse and Danny Valencia opened the seventh with sharp singles, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi made the first of his several trips to the mound. "Any time you turn to our bullpen, you feel good about it. It just didnt work out today," Pettitte said. "They send you out there to get guys out and I gave up two hits that started a rally," he said. "You cant second-guess with our bullpen. We have the best bullpen in the league, in my opinion." Not on this day, though. Matt Wieters greeted Kelley with an RBI single. Hardy, who broke an 0-for-13 rut with an earlier single, hit the first pitch for his 24th home run. Granderson got his glove on the opposite-field drive as he ran back and reached above the wall. "I couldnt tell the exact angle of where it landed, but I made a little bit of contact with the ball and a lot of contact with the wall," Granderson said. "Its not a routine play but a chance to make an exciting one." Jones connected for his 28th homer. Soriano hit an RBI single in the third. The Yankees scored two more in the fourth on Gardners walk and a sacrifice fly by Jeter. NOTES: Jeter moved past Bernie Williams for sixth on the Yankees career RBIs list with 1,258. ...
