New York Yankees Game Recap: Yankees Blown Out By Orioles


Michael Pineda was given extra rest to keep his innings down. He kept his innings down tonight as well as he only lasted 4.1 innings in the Baltimore Orioles 11-3 rout of the New York Yankees for their second loss in a row.

The Yankees had Ubaldo Jimenez on the ropes in the first as they loaded the bases thanks to two singles and a walk, but Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran failed to get a run in.

The O’s responded in the bottom half of the first. Manny Machado led off with a walk and Jimmy Parades singled. Two batters later, Chris Davis knocked in a run.

The Yankees would tie it in the third when Brett Gardner was hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on Alex Rodriguez‘s single.

The Orioles took a lead they would never lose in the bottom half. Machado reached after a ground ball hit Chase Headley in the groin. Headley would leave the game a couple of inning later due to nausea. Parades and Adam Jones would single to make it 2-1, then Davis would crush his 13th homer of the year.

Mason Williams made a splash in his major league debut with his first hit being a two-run homer to make it 4-3. Parades would drive in a run in the bottom half to stretch the lead back out to two.

Jacob Lindgren would come in and got out of a jam in the bottom of the fifth, but ran into trouble when Caleb Joseph hit a solo shot off him.

Esmil Rogers, in what may be his final appearance since he was outrighted after the game, and didn’t stop the fire. Machado singled, Parades reached on a Teixeira error. After two outs, J.J. Hardy doubled in two and then scored on Travis Snider‘s single.

Parades would then drive in another run to end the scoring.

Game two of the series will be at 7:15 tomorrow night. CC Sabathia will take on Bud Norris.
