NEW YORK (AP) - Hiroki Kuroda pitched a five-hitter for his fifth major league shutout and Brett Gardner hit his first home run off a left-handed pitcher since July 2010, leading the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Sunday night.

Kuroda (2-1) struck out four and walked none, lifting the Yankees back over .500 at 6-5.

Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (0-2) matched him until the fifth. Brennan Boesch led off with a single and scored on Jayson Nix's sacrifice fly, and Gardner hit a drive high off the right-field foul pole. Gardner had gone 178 at-bats without a home run off a lefty - 198 including the postseason - since connecting off Toronto's Ricky Romero on July 3, 2010.
