Yankees bounce back with 5-2 win over Orioles

The New York Yankees bounced back with a 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night at Oriole Park.

Jameson Taillon got the start for the Yankees and allowed two runs on three hits over 4.2 innings while striking out two and walking one.

The bullpen did another outstanding job. JP Sears (1.0 IP), Michael King (2.0 IP) and Clay Holmes (1.1 IP) each recorded scoreless appearances. Sears picked up his first MLB win and Holmes picked up his first MLB save.

Cedric Mullins opened the scoring with a two-run shot to right-center in the third.

The Yankees scored four runs in the fifth to take a 4-2 lead. Anthony Rizzo grounded a RBI single through the right side to put the Yankees on the board. Giancarlo Stanton followed that with a RBI double to left-center to tie the game at two. Josh Donaldson belted a two-run home run to center to give the Yankees a 4-2 lead.

In the sixth, Jose Trevino scored on a wild pitch to extend the lead to 5-2.

Trevino recorded his second straight multi-hit game. Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Aaron Hicks and Donaldson also finished with two-hit games.

Nestor Cortes gets the ball tomorrow afternoon as the Yankees try to take two of three from the Orioles. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PM ET.
