Yankees lose to the Orioles in 10 innings

Nate+McLouthThe Yankees and the Orioles went into the 10th inning tied until Nate McLouth homered off Vidal Nuno in the bottom of the inning to send the Yankees home with a 3-2 loss at Camden Yards on Tuesday.

The Yankees offense was sparse leading up to that. They scored one run in the first and another in the fourth, both times on a Travis Hafner RBI-single. They got just three hits in 10 innings besides Hafner’s base hits.

Phil Hughes started and was good except for a pair of solo shots by former Yankee Chris Dickerson in the third and then in the fifth. Boone Logan, Shawn Kelley, David Robertson, and Preston Claiborne kept the O’s scoreless until Nuno started the 10th and gave up a homer to the first batter he faced.

• The series is now even at a game a piece with both teams winning in the 10th inning.

• The Yankees are now 28-3 when leading at any point during the game.

• Brett Gardner and Vernon Wells both went 1-for-4 with a double. David Adams was the only other hitter with a base hit.

• The Yankees are 7-7 when Robinson Cano doesn’t get a hit. They’re 21-10 when he does.

• Curtis Granderson is now hitting .174/.208/.174 in six games since he has returned. It’s certainly way to soon to panic though and his strikeout percent is down from last year.
