The New York Yankees (4-3) erased a four-run deficit and grabbed the lead before giving it right back and falling to the Baltimore Orioles (4-3), 7-6, on Friday evening at Oriole Park. 

Oswaldo Cabrera had himself a day at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a two-run double and an RBI single. Franchy Cordero crushed a three-run home run, his first as a Yankee. 

Giancarlo Stanton collected a pair of hits, including a double. 

Anthony Volpe went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and is 3-for-21 to begin the season. 

Clarke Schmidt made his second start of the season and struggled again. He surrendered four runs on five hits over 3 1/3 innings while walking three. 

Ian Hamilton, Ron Marinaccio, and Jimmy Cordero each gave up a run in relief. Wandy Peralta tossed a scoreless inning. 

The Yankees will try to bounce back and even the series on Saturday with Jhony Brito on the mound. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
