NY re-Unit-ed with East lead
Lopez solid, but bats cold
Rodrigo Lopez allowed just two runs -- on a Matt Lawton home run in the second inning -- over 6 1/3 solid innings of work, but the Orioles fell short of the Yankees in the third game of their four-game series in the Bronx. Melvin Mora drove in the lone Baltimore run with a double in the sixth.

Series at a glance:
Johnson, Lawton lift Yanks
Randy Johnson gave up one run on three hits over eight innings, allowing Matt Lawton's two-run homer to stand up. With the win, and Boston's loss to Tampa Bay, New York regained the top spot in the American League East for the first time since July 18.
