What' s new: After taking two of three from the Rays last week, the Yankees lost two of their first three at Baltimore, scoring only four runs. SS Derek Jeter's farewell tour isn't going well of late, as he went into play Sunday hitless in his past 20 at-bats.
After almost being no-hit through 7 innings last night in the Bronx, and having Chris Young not only break up the no-no, but to hit a three-run walk-off winner, the Yankees came into Baltimore feeling as is their last charge is energized with some much needed momentum. The AL East is all but gone, but the Bombers are hanging on to dear life for the second Wild Card spot.
Jimmy Paredes hit a two-run double with two outs in the 11th inning to rally the Baltimore Orioles past the New York Yankees 2-1 Friday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. After Chris Young homered in the top of the 11th, Baltimore countered in the bottom half against Adam Warren .
In 1996, Manhattan native Dellin Betances was 8 years old when his favorite and future team, the Yankees, began their most recent dynasty. That season, a 26-year-old, second-year Yankees reliever finished third in the American League Cy Young voting by throwing 107 2/3 innings-often going multiple innings in a game-with a 2.09 ERA.
