Boone Logan came into relieve starter Ivan Nova with one out and a man on second in the bottom of the sixth and the Yankees ahead, 4-2. The Orioles cut it to 4-3 with a Chris Davis' RBI double off of Logan, which put the wraps on Nova's stat line.

In all, the rookie right-hander allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out two.

Nova seemed to wiggle out of two-out jams in the fourth and fifth. Girardi pulled after he allowed a double to Nolan Reimold with one out in the sixth, calling on Logan to face left-handed hitting Davis.
