Nate McLouth homered leading off the bottom of the 10th inning, Chris Dickerson hit a pair of solo shots and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-2 Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak.

McLouth hit a 1-1 pitch from Vidal Nuno (1-1) into the bleachers in right-center to give the Orioles their first win since May 12.

Jim Johnson (2-4), who blew three save opportunities during the six-game skid, got three straight outs in the 10th. His performance capped an exceptional effort by Orioles pitchers, who retired 21 of the last 22 New York batters.
