NEW YORK -- Starlin Castro, Nathan Eovaldi and Anthony Swarzak helped the Yankees get back over .500 and chip away at the huge gap with AL East-leading Baltimore. New York will need a lot more wins during the rest of July to persuade management not to jettison veterans for prospects.Nobody in this room believes we cant do it, Swarzak said after retiring eight straight batters in relief of Eovaldi during Tuesday nights 7-1 win over the Orioles.Castro homered in the second off Vance Worley (2-1) and hit a two-run double in the sixth against Odrisamer Despaigne. Chase Headley added a two-run homer off Mychal Givens in the eighth as the Yankees won their third straight.Relieving Eovaldi with the bases loaded and a 3-1 lead in the sixth, Swarzak got major league home run leader Mark Trumbo to foul out to Rob Refsnyder with his back to the plate down the right-field line and Jonathan Schoop to foul out to shortstop Didi Gregorius.New York closed within 6 1/2 games of Baltimore and remained five games back for the second AL wild card. Time is running down for the teams decision whether to buy or sell as the Aug. 1 trade deadline approaches.I try not to think about that. I try to focus on the game, the game in hand, and my focus is making up ground, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said,At 47-46, the Yankees are above .500 for just the third time since mid-April. New York was 4-2 before dropping to 9-17 and later got above .500 at 31-30 and 37-36 only to regress.Its been frustrating this year, because weve been here so many times and we havent been able to break through, Girardi said. I feel like if we can get over that mark, we can build on it.Making his first start since July 1 following three relief outings caused by a six-start winless streak, Eovaldi (8-6) won for the first time since May 29. He allowed one run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, needing 18 pitches to get through the first but 37 for the next four.I dont really think about getting traded, said Eovaldi, who is eligible for free agency after the 2017 season. I feel like it kind of takes away from what I need to do here. I started out with this team, and want to finish with this team, and I feel like weve got a really good chance of coming back and coming through.Eovaldi retired 11 straight batters before walking Ryan Flaherty in the sixth. He gave up Joey Rickards RBI double and loaded the bases with a walk to Manny Machado.Swarzak was assisted by Refsnyder, the rookie first baseman who caught Trumbos foul and made a two-hop throw home that held Adam Jones at third. Nick Goody followed and struck out the side in a perfect ninth, giving the Yankees No Runs DMC trio a rest.Girardi has been seeking a bridge to Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman.Yeah, he could be that guy, Girardi said of Swarzak.Baltimore has lost three straight, and its AL East lead over second-place Boston was cut to one-half game. First baseman Chris Davis (stomach virus) missed his second straight game and catcher Matt Wieters (sore right foot) also was out.Worley (2-1) made his first start since April 15 following 18 consecutive relief appearances. He allowed three runs, three hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings.New Yorks Jacoby Ellsbury grounded to shortstop in the first but his swing knocked off the glove of Caleb Joseph, who was charged with catchers interference. Ellsbury has reached on catchers interference nine times, the most in a season since Roberto Kellys eight, also for the Yankees, in 1992. Ellsbury has done it 23 times in his career, the most among major leaguers since Pete Roses 29, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Theres probably nine catchers that would like to see something change. It just doesnt seem fair to the defense, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.AGAINNew York failed to score in the first inning for the 23rd consecutive game.LOOKING AHEADThe Yankees open the 2017 season at Tampa Bay on April 3, according to the teams draft preliminary schedule, then go to Baltimore before their home opener, slated to be against the Rays on April 10. Some openers likely will be moved to April 2 for ESPN telecasts.COMING BACK?RHP Chad Green was scratched from his start at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Girardi wouldnt say whether he is being recalled, which could mean a spot start that would allow Masahiro Tanaka to pitch with an extra day of rest.TRAINERS ROOM.Yankees: 1B Mark Teixeira was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game because of a sore left foot.UP NEXTRHP Michael Pineda (3-9) is to start for the Yankees on Wednesday and RHP Yovani Gallardo (3-1) for the Orioles. Pineda is 0-3 with a 4.46 ERA in six starts since beating the Los Angeles Angels on June 7.

The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada.

Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human.

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014.

Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. HOUSTON -- Brock Osweiler is comfortable in Houston and ready to show the Texans they were right to invest $72 million in him.The quarterback, who started just seven games in his four-year career before the Texans lured him away from Denver with that huge contract, has looked good in preseason. On Sunday, hell get his first test when the Texans host the Chicago Bears.My confidence continues to grow every single day, he said. It definitely grows every single time I step on the game field because you cant really replace anything with game reps, so the more Im able to (practice) this offense, the more comfortable I become with it.Coach Bill OBrien is beginning his third year in Houston after building a reputation as a quarterback guru with New England and in his time at Penn State. Last season, he was forced to use four quarterbacks because of injuries and inconsistent play.Despite the revolving door at quarterback, Houstons 9-7 record was good enough to win a weak AFC South and reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012. But Brian Hoyer threw four interceptions in a 30-0 wild-card loss to Kansas City and sent Houston looking for an upgrade at the position.OBrien believes he found it in the 25-year-old Osweiler, who started the last seven regular-season games for the Broncos last year before being benched for the playoffs in favor of Peyton Manning. The coach loves the work ethic of his new quarterback and raved about the 12-hour days he has routinely put in so he could master the offense.Hes come in here and done exactly what weve asked him to do, OBrien said. Hes worked extremely hard ... in order to understand our offense basically like a coach does, you have to put in a lot of time. He has certainly done that.Some things to know about the 2016 Texans:WATT WILL PLAY IN OPENER: J.J. Watt will play in the season opener after missing all of training camp and the Texans four preseason games after back surgery. Watt returned to practice on Monday for the first time since surgery to repair a herniated disk in July, and coach OBrien said after practice that he would play. Watt, the NFLs Defensive Player of the Year in three of the past four seasons, hasnt missedd a game in his five-year career.ddddddddddddThe defensive end also sat out the entire preseason in 2012 because of an elbow injury and returned for the season opener.OFFENSIVE LINE SHAKEUP: The offensive line took a hit when second-round pick Nick Martin, who was expected to start at center, had season-ending ankle surgery. Greg Mancz, a second-year player who appeared in three games last season, took over on a line that will be without veteran left tackle Duane Brown (quadriceps surgery in January) when the season begins. Brown was also activated from the PUP list Saturday, but isnt sure when hell be able to return. Despite the injuries, OBrien is confident in the unit.I really like that group of guys, OBrien said. I think they practice hard. They take it very seriously. Football is very important to them, so I know theyll work hard to get better.HELP FOR HOPKINS: Top receiver DeAndre Hopkins was third in the NFL with 1,521 yards receiving despite dealing with near-constant double teams. The Texans looked to take some pressure off Hopkins by choosing Will Fuller in the first round of this years draft and adding former star Ohio State quarterback-turned-receiver Braxton Miller in the third round. OBrien has been impressed with their development throughout camp and said the pair will both get plenty of playing time in the opener.Hopkins has been hard on the pair and loves how theyve responded.We demand the best out of all the rookies, Hopkins said. Especially, in that receiving group, I demand the best out of you.CLOWNEYS GOAL: The Texans are looking for a breakout season from outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney after he failed to make an impact in his first two NFL seasons. Clowney, who was the first overall pick in the 2014 draft, has been plagued by injuries since he was drafted. He got plenty of work this preseason and impressed coaches with his development. He knows the key to success this season is simple.Just want to stay on the field all season, he said. Thats it.----AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
