The New York Yankees were unable to complete the four-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles as they fell 9-6 on Thursday afternoon at Oriole Park.
Jordan Montgomery got the start for New York and allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings while striking out three.
Miguel Castro had a rough outing in relief as he gave up three runs (two earned) and did not record an out. Chad Green left the game in the sixth inning with what the Yankees are calling right forearm discomfort. He will be re-evaluated when the team gets back to New York. Jonathan Loaisiga recorded the final out of the sixth and Wandy Peralta retired all six batters that he faced. Lucas Luetge gave up a walk-off three-run home run.
Giancarlo Stanton opened the scoring in the first with a two-run single off the left-field wall.
Robinson Chirinos tied the game in the second with a two-run homer to left.
Jorge Mateo gave the Orioles a 3-2 lead in the third with an RBI single to center.
Stanton drilled a solo home run just inside the left-field foul pole in the fourth to tie the game at three.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa put New York back on top in the sixth with a two-out, two-run single to left. However, the Orioles answered in the bottom of the inning with three runs to re-take the lead. Tyler Nevin and Rougned Odor each had RBI singles while Cedric Mullins had a sacrifice fly.
DJ LeMahieu delivered a clutch two-out RBI single to right in the ninth to tie the game.
Anthony Santander drilled a walk-off three-run home run in the ninth to give the Orioles the 9-6 victory.
Anthony Rizzo had a two-hit game but was ejected in the eighth for arguing balls and strikes.
The Yankees finished 6-2 on the road trip. They will head back to the Bronx to begin a three-game series with the White Sox on Friday night. Nestor Cortes is scheduled to get the start.
