Yankees Fall To Orioles’s 7-1
The Orioles (14-10) found success for the first time in five tries against the Yankees (13-10) this season beating them 7-1 on Tuesday night. Orioles starter Brian Matusz was unusually impressive in his outing against the Yanks, Matusz went 6 1/3, only allowing one run on six hits and struck out four. Yankees starter Phil Hughes went 5 2/3 innings gave up four runs on four hits and struck out six.
The Orioles got on the board in the second inning thanks to a Chris Davis solo shot off of Phil Hughes. It was Davis 5th homerun of the season. J.J. Hardy would add two more with a two run home run in the third inning, his 4th. In the sixth inning Wilson Betemit made the score 4-1 with a RBI single, then a costly two run error by Yankee left fielder Eduardo Nunez would make the score 6-1. A Nick Johnson RBI double in the eighth inning off Rafael Soriano would finally make the score 7-1.
The only Yankee run came in the first inning thanks to a Curtis Granderson solo home run. It was Granderson’s 9th home run of the year, tying him with Josh Hamilton for the AL lead.

on April 7th, 1992 as New York Yankees manager.
