Chris Davis Powers The Orioles Over The Yankees

The Yankees loaded the bases in the first inning, twice again in the sixth against Zach Britton and tallied an impressive eleven hits on the nights. Somehow, with all that said, they managed to fall to the Orioles 11-3.

Yankees starter David Phelps was knocked around the yard early, giving up nine hits and nine earned runs in just 2.1 innings of work. He surrendered four runs in the bottom of the first inning, including a three run blast by O’s slugger Chris Davis. Davis added a two run shot off Ivan Nova in the sixth inning, giving him an incredible 30 home runs on the season. Davis joins Barry Bonds and Luis Gonzalez as the only two players in baseball history to hit 30 long balls by the 29th of June. Lead off hitter Nate McLouth was the only batter held hitless by Yankee pitching on the night.

The Yankees did show life at the plate, but were unable to deliver key hits with runners in scoring position all night long. The three runs New York did manage to put on the board came on a Ziolo Almonte sac fly in the sixth, an error by Chris Davis in the same inning, and a double by Brett Gardner that scored Chris Stewart in the ninth.

The loss drops the Yankees to 42-38, 5.5 games behind Boston in the AL East.
