BOX SCORE: YANKEES 9, ORIOLES 6

New York's power surge and sixth straight win overshadowed a memorable night for Baltimore's Jonathan Villar, who became the fifth Orioles player to hit for the cycle and first since Felix Pie on Aug. 14, 2009. Villar tripled in the third inning, doubled in the fifth, homered in the sixth and dumped a single into right field off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth.

Although it looked as if Villar had no interest in heading to second base on the poke near the line, he later said he had no idea that the single completed the cycle.

"I wasn't paying attention to that," he said. "When I hit a base hit right there, the coach at first, he said, `Congratulations, you hit for the cycle.' Right there, I knew I hit for the cycle."

Mike Tauchman delivered a bases-empty drive in the sixth inning and a solo shot off Paul Fry (1-4) in the eighth, his first career multihomer game . Austin Romine , Brett Gardner and Mike Ford also connected for the Yankees.

Not exactly Murderers' Row, but certainly effective enough.

"That's been a theme for us all year," manager Aaron Boone said. "They can come from a lot of different places, and the bottom of the order is a place where we've gotten really good production and a place where we feel really confident."

New York has hit 32 home runs at Camden Yards, a single-season record for most by a visiting team in one ballpark. The mark was previously held by the Milwaukee Braves, who hit 29 at Cincinnati's Crosley Field in 1957.
