Yankees Fall in Extras
For the second straight night, the Yankees and Orioles went to extras, but this time, it was the squad from Baltimore that took the win.

In the bottom of the tenth, still tied, Nate McLouth came through with the O’s third solo shot of the night, and Baltimore walked off with the win.
Despite the two home runs, Phil Hughes pitched well for the Yanks, going six innings and striking out five. Miguel Gonzalez started for the Orioles, going seven innings, allowing two runs and, also striking out five.
Wednesday night will be the rubber match of this three game set. Coverage starts at 6:15 on 104.5 The Team.
