BALTIMORE (AP) - Kevin Gausman outpitched CC Sabathia for the second time in seven days, Adam Jones homered and the Baltimore Orioles got their third straight shutout against the New York Yankees, 2-0 on Saturday night.
Gausman (7-10) allowed two hits and two walks over six innings to win his fourth straight start. He struck out eight and permitted only one runner past second base.
The right-hander threw seven shutout innings in New York last Sunday and is 2-1 with an 0.80 ERA in five starts against the Yankees this season.
Zach Britton, the third Baltimore reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 40th save in 40 opportunities.
The victory moved the third-place Orioles within two games of the top spot in the AL East.
Sabathia (8-12) gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings. All it got him was another loss against the Orioles, the third in a row since mid-July.
