BALTIMORE, Md. — This series was about as disappointing as it gets. I feel like a lot of the frustrations with this team aren’t early season overreactions but rather a build up of what we’ve been watching for the past two years. Alas, the New York Yankees lost two more games to the Baltimore Orioles than they should have.
Nestor Cortes: Cortes was splended Sunday. He registered 12 K’s in five scoreless frames. Unfortunately he received zero run support. That’s how it’s done ace.
The lineup: The Yankees were held scoreless in 25 of 29 innings played in Baltimore. Woof.
Gleyber Torres: Not so long ago he used to dominate at Camden Yards. Alas, Torres went 0-for-11 against the Orioles and the official scorer saved him from being charged with an error at shortstop on Sunday.
Aroldis Chapman: How do you walk in the winning run on a slider? Throw your fastball and challenge the Tripe-A O’s lineup for crying out loud!
