NEW YORK After three innings, Chris Tillman was suddenly out of the game. His right elbow had stiffened. All season long, Orioles pitchers have been notably free of injuries to their arms, shoulders and elbows. That may not be the case now.Enter Randy Wolf. Activated on Friday, Wolf was making just his sixth relief appearance in 14 major league seasons. Wolf allowed a run and three hits in 3 13 innings as the Orioles beat the New York Yankees 8-3 before 46,501 at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.The Orioles (74-59) won two of three this weekend and leave New York just two games behind the Yankees (76-57) in the AL East.Tillman, who entered the game with a 10.69 ERA in four career starts at Yankee Stadium, allowed a two-run home run to Chris Dickerson in the second.Dickerson started because Curtis Granderson injured his right hamstring on Saturday. His home run came on his first at-bat of the season. Tillman allowed two runs, two hits, walked two, struck out two and allowed a pair of wild pitches in his three innings.He was replaced by Wolf (1-0), who allowed an RBI single to Nick Swisher in the fifth. Wolf walked one and struck out one.Phil Hughes (13-12) held the Orioles to two singles in the first four singles. Mark Reynolds hit a long home run to left, his 15th of the season, and third of the series to lead off the fifth.In the sixth, Nate McLouth walked, Adam Jones singled and Matt Wieters singled to score McLouth. Reynolds followed with another home run to left for a 5-3 lead. It was his second two-home run game of the series.In the seventh, with Markakis at first, Jones hit a long fly ball that Dickerson leaped for and caught, robbing him of a home run. Jones stood between first and second in disbelief.In the seventh, Wolf gave up a leadoff single to Ichiro Suzuki. After Andruw Jones flied to right, Luis Ayala replaced Wolf and hit Jayson Nix with a pitch. Derek Jeter hit into a double play to end the inning.The Orioles scored three runs against five New York pitchers in the
eighth on a bases-loaded walk to Robert Andino and a two-run single by Markakis.
NOTE: -Markakis is 13-for-26 in six games at Yankee Stadium since being moved to leadoff.-Wieters became the first Oriole to hit in his first 14 games of the season against the Yankees.-The Orioles begin a three-game series in Toronto on Monday afternoon.
