Yankees Miss Chance to Sweep O’s And Gain on Red Sox

The Yankees showed us their best and worst in a 10-6 loss to the Orioles on Sunday in Baltimore, which does nothing to allay the fears of Bombers fans.

Before the third inning was complete, Gary Sanchez had homered. Clint Frazier had homered and Aaron Judge had homered powering the Yankees to leads of 4-0 and 5-2. By the end of the third, the game was tied 5-5 and the Bombers were out of bombs.

Jordan Montgomery gave up five earned runs on six hits, walking four and striking out two in just three innings of work. It magnified one of the Yankee weaknesses, starting pitching.

“That’s baseball,” said Montgomery. “A lot of things could have gone differently today, but just sucks because the hitters really gave me a lead and I let ‘em down.”

The Yankees (22-18) certainly have rebounded from a horrific first two weeks of the season. But they missed a chance to gain on the Red Sox, who were 6-5 losers to the Angels. The Yankees had won 6-of-7.

“I mean that’s baseball,” said manager Aaron Boone. “They put it on us a little bit. … I thought we came out with a good focus today and just couldn’t close it down.”
