The Baltimore Orioles behind their starter Zach Britton beat the New York Yankees 2-0 in game 1 of the day-night doubleheader in Baltimore. Both Zach Britton and Bartolo Colon pitched great for their respective clubs, but ultimately the Yankees could not find a way to score runs.

Find out why there was a small victory in the Yanks’ loss.

The Yankees could not score against Zach Britton during his 8 innings of shutout baseball. In those 8 innings he allowed just 4 hits, walked 1, and stuck out 5, which was a far cry from his previous start against the Bombers when he allowed 9 hits and 7 runs in just a third of an inning pitched.

Bartolo Colon finally broke out of his slump and pitched great for the Yankees, regaining his sharp command of his 2-seam fastball and his breaking pitches. Colon went 7 2/3 innings giving up 7 hits, 2 runs, not walking a batter and striking out 4. Colon had struggled during his last few starts and this strong start is a small victory for the Yanks.
