Orioles End Yankees Winning Streak In Extra Innings

After playing until 2:15 this morning, the Yankees and Orioles finished out their 3-game series in the Bronx this afternoon with an extra-inning matinee.

Baltimore ended the Yankees 6-game winning streak with a 5-4 win in 11 innings.

Mark Reynolds hit a game-winning single in the top of the 11th inning in a sloppy 4½-hour game that was plagued by bad weather, make-shift starting lineups and poor defensive play.

The weather that delayed Tuesday night’s game for over 4 hours didn’t seem to let up on Wednesday either.  A steady rain fell for much of the afternoon which led to 6 total errors (4 for the Yankees, 2 for the Orioles).

Jesus Montero continued his hot-hitting.  The 21-year old rookie singled home two runs in the 4th which tied the game up at 4.  Montero is now hitting .353 with 2 homers and 5 RBIs in 5 games since being called up from AAA Scranton.

It was another uneven game for A.J. Burnett.  The Yankees starter went 6 innings, gave up seven hits, four earned runs, four walks, seven strikeouts, three wild pitches and one home run.  He didn’t factor in the decision – as he left with the score tied at 4.

These teams will play again on Thursday afternoon in a make-up game in Baltimore. Ivan Nova (15-4, 3.89) takes on Alfredo Simon (4-8. 4.64) at Camden Yards at 1:05pm.  On Friday, the Yankees will start a 9-game/10-day, three-city road trip to Los Angeles, Seattle and Toronto.
