Pettitte, Yankees top Orioles for 6th straight win
By BEN WALKER - Associated Press

Andy Pettitte stopped the Orioles once again, Eduardo Nunez returned with a go-ahead hit and the New York Yankees beat Baltimore 5-4 Saturday for their season-high sixth straight win.

The Yankees overcame Chris Davis' major league-leading 33rd home run and yet another double from Manny Machado, celebrating his 21st birthday. The Orioles have lost four of five.

The 41-year-old Pettitte (6-6) earned his 251st win, tying Hall of Famer Bob Gibson for 44th place on the all-time list.

Pettitte persevered on a hot, sticky day, hanging in after the Orioles took an early 3-0 lead. He got a big cheer when he trotted off with two outs in the seventh inning after exactly 100 pitches, and ended a four-start winless string.
