NEW YORK (AP) — Gary Sánchez hit a grand slam and a two-run homer, but the New York Yankees blew a late lead and lost to the last-place Baltimore Orioles 8-7. The wild card-contending Yankees dropped to 9-7 against the Orioles this year. Baltimore is 1-18 against AL East-leading Tampa Bay. New York wasted leads of 4-1, 5-2 and 7-4 and lost for the sixth time in eight games following its first 13-game winning streak since 1961. Sánchez hit a slam in the second inning and his home run in the sixth gave the Yankees a 7-4 lead and earned the catcher a brief curtain call. But the reception from the crowd changed when Andrew Heaney allowed four runs in the seventh.
