Pronk stayed hot tonight, going 2-4 with 2 RBIs Baltimore Orioles 3–New York Yankees 2 (10 innings) Phil Hughes put together another solid start and Travis Hafner stayed hot, but it wasn’t enough as the O’s clipped the Bombers in extra innings. Hughes was effective over 6 innings, allowing just 5 hits and 2 runs–both solo shots by Chris Dickerson–while striking out 5, before giving way to a bullpen cocktail of Boone Logan, Shawn Kelley, David Robertson, and Preston Claiborne that stymied Baltimore for 3 innings. Last night the Yankee bats were able to produce down the stretch, but tonight the Yanks managed just 1 hit in their final 19 at bats–a David Adams single in the 7th. Aside from yielding RBI singles to Hafner in the 1st and 4th innings, Miguel Gonzalez was masterful over seven while Tommy Hunter and Jim Johnson slammed the door on the Yanks, holding them hitless over the final three. That left the door open for Baltimore to steal the game and that’s exactly what they did when Nate McLouth homered to right-center off of Vidal Nuno to open, and close, the 10th. The Yanks will look to rebound tomorrow in the rubber match at Camden Yards as Hiroki Kuroda battles Jason Hammel.   Win: Jim Johnson (2-4) Loss: Vidal Nuno (1-1)   Notables: Yankees *Brett Gardner: 1-4, 2B (8), Run *Vernon Wells: 1-4, 2B (6), Run *Travis Hafner: 2-4, 2 RBI (24) Orioles *Nate McLouth: 2-5, Run, HR (4), RBI (11) *Chris Dickerson: 3-4, 2 HR (3), 2 RBI (8)   Current Yankees Record: 28-17
