Michael Pineda made his triumphant return tonight. He pitched well, well enough to earn a win if the bullpen held the lead. The bullpen didn’t and the Yankees fell to the Orioles 5-2.
Dellin Betances came in and pitched two shutout innings. Joe Girardi decided to leave Betances in for a third inning. Johnathan Schoop then hit his 11th homer of the year to tie the game and knock out Betances. In came Shawn Kelley who didn’t exactly help. After a groundout, Nick Markakis singled and Chris Davis walked. Adam Jones then blasted his 23rd homer to left to make it 5-2.
The Yanks rallied a little bit off Oriole closer Zach Britton. After a strikeout, Mark Teixeira walked and Carlos Beltran doubled. Chase Headley grounded out to bring home a run, but Drew grounded out to end the game.
