BALTIMORE (AP) Manny Machado hit two home runs, Jonathan Schoop singled in the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied past the New York Yankees 6-5 Tuesday night.

Greg Bird homered and drove in four runs for the Yankees, who own an inexplicable 4-5 record against the last-place Orioles.

Machado brought the Orioles back from deficits of 3-2 and 5-3 before Schoop won it in the ninth against Dellin Betances (1-3).

A hit batter, a double by Adam Jones and an intentional walk to Machado loaded the bases with one out. After Mark Trumbo struck out, Schoop hit a bouncer that glanced off the glove of Bird at first base and into right field.

Zach Britton (1-0) worked the ninth for Baltimore.

Bird hit a three-run homer and added a sacrifice fly to help New York go up by two runs in the seventh. But the lead wouldn't last.

Machado had a solo shot in the fifth and a two-run homer in the seventh. Rumored to be traded before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, Machado has five multihomer games this season and 19 for his career.

Orioles starter Andrew Cashner gave up five runs and five hits in 6 1/3 innings. He has gone eight straight starts without a victory.

After retiring the first 13 Yankees in order, Cashner gave up a single, issued a walk and yielded a home run to Bird.

Machado homered on the first pitch in the bottom half to tie it at 3.

The pattern continued in the seventh. After Bird hit a sacrifice fly and Neil Walker singled in a run, Machado made it 5-all with an opposite-field drive to right off Chad Green.

Coming off the disabled list after being sidelined for a month with two sore hamstrings, Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings. He was pulled, as planned, after throwing 80 pitches.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Yankees: 2B Gleyber Torres (hip) will begin to ramp up baseball activities this week, manager Aaron Boone said. The hope is that Torres returns soon after the All-Star break. ... C Gary Sanchez (groin) participated in batting practice. Boone says the club will map out a rehab stint of at least one game with a timeline for a return similar to that of Torres.

Orioles: OF Jace Peterson sat out the game after bruising his knee in a collision with the wall on Monday night. ... RHP Chris Tillman (back) allowed four earned runs over 6 1/3 innings for Class A Frederick. He will likely get one more rehab start before the Orioles decide if they want him back in the majors, where he's 1-5 with a 10.46 ERA this season.

FRESH ARMS

The Orioles recalled LHP Donnie Hart from Triple-A Norfolk and selected the contract of RHP Jhan Marinez from Norfolk. Baltimore optioned RHPs Ryan Meisinger and Yefry Ramirez to Norfolk after both pitched multiple innings Monday.

UP NEXT

Yankees: Struggling Sonny Gray (5-7, 5.85 ERA) will start the series finale on Wednesday night. Gray failed to get past the third inning in his last two starts, leaving open the possibility of a demotion to the bullpen. ''I had to bad starts in a row. It's no secret,'' he said. ''But at the end of the day I get a chance to compete, a chance to go out there and try to win a baseball game.''

Orioles: With a victory Wednesday, Dylan Bundy (6-8, 4.08) will own more than a quarter of Baltimore's wins.
