BALTIMORE Champion Yankee Clay Holmes threw a wild step with two outs in the ninth inning, allowing the score to equalize, and then Austin Hayes crushed the RBI single in the 10th, which raised the Baltimore Orioles to a 3-2 victory on Thursday. Tonight. York is back in the race with AL shaft cards.
The Yankees are a game and a half behind Toronto and Boston at the top of the AL standings. New York won three in a row.
“We’ve had a lot of pain at different times of the year,” said Yankee manager Aaron Boone. “It certainly belongs to this category, but we have to overcome it. We have a very important game tomorrow.”
Working on a wet night, Holmes was one shot away from his first career when his high and fast football overtook catcher Gary Sanchez, allowing runner Calvin Gutierrez to run home from third base with two outs. The Yankees closer to Aroldis Chapman performed the previous three days.
“It’s certainly not perfect, but we all play the same game, and you need to learn to tune in, serve and do your job,” Holmes said of the conditions.
Ryan Mountcastle joined Baltimore, which broke five games and avoided its 100th defeat of the season. The Orioles improved to 12-22 in one-off games.
“We haven’t taken many breaks, and we feel like we did them today,” said Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde.
Jahmai Jones, a runner-up for automatic runner Austin Vince, moved to third place in Richie Martin’s singles single against Wendy Peralta (5-4) in the 10th. After Cedric Mullins left and knocked out Mountcastle, Hayes grounded the single to the left on an adjacent field to win it.
Hayes returned home twice on Wednesday night, losing to the Orioles 4-3 to the Yankees.
“We play with a team that is very, very talented and has high expectations, so for us to play back-to-back games with these guys here for the last two nights, I’m very proud of that,” said Hyde.
Cole Sulzer (5-4) filed two innings for Baltimore without a score. Sulser and three other facilitators combined for 5 1/3 innings without results.
Jordan Montgomery, who gave up seven career runs in his last show on Friday against the New York Mets, was much clearer against the Orioles. He scored a career-high of 12, recorded several strikes in each of the first five innings and allowed one run for six hits in 5 2/3 innings.
It was the 15th time this season that the Yankees have recorded at least 10 withdrawals, breaking the franchise record of the first 14 sets in 1963 and coincidences in 1998.
Joey Gallo hit his 35th Homer of the season and 10th after trading on July 29 from Texas, one in the other. After successive walks, Gio Urschela doubled to the right and became 2-0.
That’s all the Yankees collected against Chris Ellis, who allowed two runs in three strokes and four runs in 4 2/3 innings. He crossed out three.
“It’s unpleasant because we just couldn’t add anything today,” Boone said. “I thought we swung the bats well in the first half of the game and didn’t have much to show for a lot of hard outs.”
Mountcastle’s trip, a defeat in the sixth, became his 29th of the year to set a record for rookie Oriole. In 1982, Kel Ripken Jr. got to 28 homers.
Yankees: 2B DJ LeMahieu has resigned. “He’s fine, but I just felt he needed a day today,” Boone said. RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (shoulder strain) is expected to start throwing again on Friday.
Oriole: Hyde said that 1B Trey Mancini (oblique right / stomach) and Pedro Severino (upper leg / groin discomfort) remain daily. Both left the team in the second game in a row. I ?? ¦ Baltimore stated that RHP Brooks Kriske refused the Yankees and offered him Triple-A Norfolk. To free up a place on the list of 40 people, the Orioles transferred Jorge Lopez’s RHP (ankle sprain) to the 60-day list of injured. “After the game, Jones was elected to Norfolk.
Yankees: RHP Corey Kluber (4-3, 4.02 ERA), a two-time Sai Young winner with Cleveland, meets the Indians for the first time in his career when New York returns home to open a three-game series.
Orioles: LHP Keegan Akin (2-9, 6.83) starts the match when Baltimore visits Boston to start the journey with six games.
