Yankees battle back, fall to Orioles in 10 innings

The New York Yankees (51-25) battled back from a four-run deficit and tied the game in the ninth, but the Baltimore Orioles (48-25) still picked up a 7-6 victory in 10 innings on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium to even this three-game series at a game apiece.

New York trailed 5-1 going into the bottom of the seventh but fought back, cutting the deficit to one on Giancarlo Stanton’s three-run homer into Monument Park. Then, in the ninth, Stanton delivered again, ripping a game-tying single off Craig Kimbrel to send the game to extras.

In the top of the 10th, Cedric Mullins dunked one into shallow center for a go-ahead RBI single off Clay Holmes and later scored on Jose Trevino’s throwing error, and that proved to be the difference. The Yankees did get one in the bottom of the 10th on Ben Rice’s sacrifice fly, but Jahmai Jones struck out looking with Trevino at first to end the contest.

Gerrit Cole made his first start of the season and allowed two runs on three hits over four innings while striking out five. Ron Marinaccio surrendered two runs, and Victor González gave up one.

Gleyber Torres plated New York’s first run in the first with a sacrifice fly.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to bounce back and take two of three from the Orioles on Thursday at 4:05 p.m. Luis Gil will take the ball for New York.
