The Yankees return from the off day with a trip to Baltimore to face the Orioles.
Chad Green pitched a scoreless first inning but the second inning proved to be painful for Green and the Yankees in more ways than one. With two outs and one on, Adam Jones dropped a single into center field for the first run of the game. Pedro Alvarez dealt a big two-run home run to right field to extend the Orioles lead to three. Following a walk of Manny Machado, Green received a visit from the trainer and left with him. Due to injury, Nick Goody entered in the second inning and compounded the problem when he gave up back-to-back home runs to Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo. The six-run second inning but the Yankees in a large early hole.
In 1 2/3 innings, Green gave up four runs on five hits. He walked two and struck out three.
Following 1 1/3 innings by Goody, Kirby Yates came on in the fourth inning but walked Pedro Alvarez to start the inning. Manny Machado took Yates deep to left for a two-run home run that put the Yankees in an eight-run hole that they could not find their way out of at all. The Yankees mustered just two hits and six base runners total tonight against Dylan Bundy in 5 2/3 innings. The bullpen was perfect in 3 1/3 innings.
Jonathan Holder made his major league debut and struck out Adam Jones in a perfect inning of work. Luis Severino added a perfect inning of relief as well.
