Jones, Orioles rally past Yanks, end 5-game skid

Jones, Orioles rally past Yanks, end 5-game skid

Alvarez hit a grand slam, Manny Machado homered twice and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Yankees 7-3 on Friday night after NY saw four players forced to make early exits.

Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, for all his assurances about his mental state coming to NY and switching positions and his outlook on free agency, was missing one key factor thus far in 2018 - a star turn like he had Friday.

Stay tuned to YES Network for the latest news and developments on Sabathia's hip injury as the Yankees finish out their weekend series against Baltimore. The Yankees threw 265 pitches as Jonathan Holder threw 42 pitches and Chasen Shreve threw 39 while Adam Warren was the last remaining reliever. The Yankees are getting 80 percent of the wagers on this contest as the favorite at home against the Orioles.

Besides bullpen moves, Boone has other concerns after three other players exited the game.

All three appear to be fine, but it's possible they will not be in the starting lineup Saturday. Sabathia, who wears a brace on his surgically repaired right knee, made his second start of the season. The 31-year-old threw six innings while allowing just two hits and one run which was more than enough to fend off NY.

"Never happy about going four innings", Gray told reporters. Chris Tillman was terrible last year and he did not pitch well in his first start this year as he allowed four ERs on seven hits and four walks in just four innings against a good Toronto offense.

After a brutal opening week of the 2018 campaign, the Orioles will now look to bounce back in a hurry during their upcoming four-game set in the Bronx against the in-form Yankees.

Gregorius hit a home run earlier in the eighth to tie the game at three. In his career, Gray is 2-4 with a 5.28 ERA and 32 strikeouts against Baltimore. Moran's two-run single with two outs in the third inning just dropped in front of diving center fielder Billy Hamilton and put the Pirates ahead for good at 4-2. Tillman is looking to bounce back from an injury-plagued 2017 that saw him finish 1-7 with a ghastly 7.84 ERA while being limited to 93 innings due to shoulder problems.

Estrada (1-0) earned the win with six innings of one-run, five-hit pitching for Toronto that also featured seven strikeouts and just one base on balls.

"It's much different", Tillman told reporters.

It's just the sixth rainout in AT&T Park history and the first in a dozen years, according to SFGate.com. I have quite a bit.

"I'm going to get mine". In his career, he has gone 37-28 with a 4.69 ERA in 99 games (94 starts) on the road and 9-8 with a 4.75 ERA in 25 starts in March/ April, plus 21-16 with a 4.51 ERA in 63 games (60 starts) in the daytime, while against the Yankees, he has gone 8-8 with a 5.54 ERA in 22 games (21 starts), including 4-5 with a 7.63 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) here at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Cashner (0-1, 7.20 ERA) will take the mound against Masahiro Tanaka (1-0, 1.50 ERA) in tonight's series opener.
