Yankees offense goes silent in series-opening loss to Orioles

The New York Yankees came out on the wrong side of a pitcher’s duel on Monday night, falling 2-0 to the Baltimore Orioles in the series opener.

Gunnar Henderson took Clarke Schmidt deep to open the game, and that was the difference, though the Orioles tacked on a run in the eighth on Anthony Volpe’s fielding error.


New York (19-11), who outhit Baltimore (18-10) 7-4, had plenty of opportunities to do damage on offense but went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position, leaving nine runners on base. 

Schmidt went a season-high 5.2 innings while walking three and striking out five.

Box Score 

The Yankees will try to bounce back and even the four-game series on Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. Nestor Cortes will take the ball.
