Baltimore Orioles 7 — New York Yankees 1

 

The lack of offense and difficulties on defense played a huge factor in tonight’s 7-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

 

Phil Hughes went a season-high 5.2 innings and gave up just 4 runs on 4 hits with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. Two of the four runs that he gave up were from the long ball, solo home runs by J.J. Hardy and Chris Davis. This has been Hughes best outing so far despite throwing 100 pitches in this outing. Hopefully, he gets another start to build upon this start as he attempts to put this season back on the right track. Boone Logan replaced Hughes and after consecutive singles, a fly ball to left fielder Eduardo Nunez proved to be difficult as it got by him and became a two-run error.

 

After Alex Rodriguez, the lineup was non-existent. Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, and Alex Rodiguez went a combined 7 for 12 with a double from Jeter, a solo home run from Granderson, and a bunt single by Alex Rodriguez. The rest of the lineup could only manage two walks without getting a hit. The Yankees were hitless with runners in scoring position and left 9 on base.

 

Win – Brian Matusz (1-3)

Loss – Phil Hughes (1-4)
