Orioles Complete Sweep of Yankees

The slide continued on Sunday night with the Orioles completing a three game sweep of the Yankees.

Occasionally, what you see on the field and what you see in the box score tell two different stories.  Sunday night may well have been one of those times.  A look at Hiroki Kuroda’s statistics would imply that the righty starter didn’t have it against the Orioles and struggled throughout.

The truth, though, is that Kuroda was rarely in any sort of trouble Sunday night.  Indeed, it was the solo home run that proved his, and the Yankees’, undoing.  Mistakes to Machado, Davis, and McLouth each found the Camden Yards seats to give the Orioles a pair of leads.  A fourth run on a sacrifice fly padded that second lead and the O’s went on to complete the three-game sweep of the Yankees, 4-2.

Brett Gardner walked and Robinson Cano homered to account for the pair of Yankee runs off Baltimore starter Chris Tillman. Tillman took the win, with Jim Johnson collecting the save after putting the tying runs on in the top of the ninth.

On Monday, the Yankees will try to get back on track against the Twins.  Coverage of the game begins at 7:30 on 104.5 The Team.
