Yankees, Reynolds wrap up win over Orioles

Yankees, Reynolds wrap up win over Orioles NEW YORK -- For Mark Reynolds, whirlwind is the best way to describe the last two weeks of his baseball career.

Sabathia allowed three runs -- two earned -- on three hits over six-plus innings, though he issued a season-high six walks, twice as many as he had issued in any of his previous 24 outings.
