Pavano does enough

Yankees 3, Orioles 2
Carl Pavano improved to 4-1 with Friday's night's victory. (Ed Betz/AP)
The Yankees kept elimination at arm's length with their sixth win in seven games thanks to a workmanlike effort from Carl Pavano, who earned his fourth win in six games, and Mariano Rivera, who notched his 480th career save. Brett Gardner robbed Luke Scott of a homer in the fourth.
