Nuno dazzles, but Yanks fall to Orioles 2-1

Vidal Nuno

Vidal Nuno continued to make a strong case for a spot on the Yankees roster by dazzling his opponents, but ultimately the Yankees fell to the Orioles 2-1 at Ed Smith Stadium.

Nuno pitched four scoreless innings against the Orioles, leaving them hitless through three before allowing a base hit to Chris Davis with two outs in the fourth.

“Everything was working today, just being confident,” Nuno said. “It’s just having the confidence in all my pitches working and just going out there to just have fun.”

Yankees second basemen Brian Roberts had the games first single in the fourth inning against his former team.

Francisco Arcia put the Yankees on the board in the sixth inning with a solo home run against Orioles starter Chris Tillman. Chris Davis tied the game at one with a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth against  Danny Burawa. Mark Montgomery, who had been sharp this Spring thus far, gave up the lead run on a SAC Fly by Jonathan Schoop in the eighth inning, scoring Jemile Weeks.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees play one more game this evening as Adam Warren gets the start against the Marlins at Rod Carew Stadium in Panama City, Panama. Derek Jeter is expected to be in the lineup as the Yankees honor their friend and teammate Mariano Rivera, who retired after 19 season seasons with the organization. First pitch is at 9:05 p.m.
