NEW YORK (AP) — The Yankees turned a triple play in the eighth inning after Adam Jones dropped Vernon Wells’ fly ball while blowing a bubble for a game-changing, three-run error, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 Friday night for its fourth straight win.
  
Baltimore started the eighth with two singles off CC Sabathia (2-1), and Manny Machado hit a sharp low liner that second baseman Robinson Cano.
  
Cano tossed it to shortstop Jayson Nix for the forceout at second. Alexi Casilla, thinking the ball was going to be caught by Cano, got trapped in a rundown between second and third base.
  
Third baseman Kevin Youkilis tagged Casilla and then threw to first baseman Lyle Overbay when Machado ranged too far off the bag. Overbay then threw to Cano, who tagged Machado, setting off a smiling celebration by New York.
  
The Yankees had last turned a triple play on April 22, 2010, at Oakland.
