Same story, different day.
Once again the New York Yankees offense just couldn’t get anything going as they were shut out by the Baltimore Orioles, 5-0, on Sunday afternoon at Oriole Park.
They had just four hits over nine innings and DJ LeMahieu had two of them.
Nestor Cortes got the start and just dominated. He tossed five shutout innings to go along with a career-high 12 strikeouts. He also had an immaculate inning, striking out three batters on nine pitches in the fourth.
New York’s bullpen also struggled as Jonathan Loaisiga allowed four runs and Lucas Luetge allowed one run. Chad Green recorded four outs without allowing a run.
Baltimore scored all five of their runs with two outs in the eighth. Former Yankee Rougned Odor grounded one through the middle for a two-run single to give the Orioles a 2-0 lead. Kelvin Gutierrez followed that with a RBI double to left and former Yankee Jorge Mateo capped off the inning with a RBI single to right.
The Yankees were shut out by the Orioles for the first time since September 3, 2016.
The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they begin a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on Tuesday night. First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m.
