Orioles climb into share

UNDATED (AP) - The resilient Baltimore Orioles regained a share of first place in the American League East by recovering from losing a five-run lead to club  the New York Yankees 10-6 behind a four-run rally in the eighth at Camden Yards.
Mark Reynolds hit two of Baltimore's season-high six home runs. Adam Jones' leadoff homer in the eighth inning off David Robertson put Baltimore ahead 7-6 after the Yankees rallied from a five-run deficit in the top half. Matt Wieters (WEE'-turz) followed with a single and Reynolds hit a drive into the left-field seats. Chris Davis then slammed the first pitch from Derek Lowe over the right-field wall.
     Wieters and Robert Andino (an-DEE'-noh) also connected for the Orioles, who've won 10 of 13 - a run that includes three of four over New York.
In the only other AL game of the night, Texas downed Kansas City 5-4 in 10 innings. Michael Young's single scored Ian Kinsler, who had opened the 10th with a triple. Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back homers in the fourth to help the AL West leaders overcome a 3-0 deficit.
