Game 30 : Starter Adam Warren had trouble securing a 5-0 lead, but New York’s reliable bullpen came to the rescue again to ensure a 5-4 win over visiting Baltimore. After the Orioles plated 2 runs in the fifth, Warren was lifted with 2 on and 2 out. Justin Wilson ended the drama there, but was tagged with 2 earned runs himself in the 6th when Chris Martin relieved and allowed a Jimmy Paredes grounder up the middle that scored 2 more runs.
The Yankees put 3 on the board in the first inning via an Alex Rodriguez sac fly that plated Jacoby Ellsbury, and a Brian McCann blast to right with Brett Gardner on base. McCann, who was green-lighted on 3-0 count, clubbed a Miguel Gonzalez 91mph four-seam fastball. Carlos Beltran‘s bases-loaded double in the third scored 2, and the O’s bullpen shut New York down for the remaining innings.
Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.
