The Yankees entered their series against the Baltimore Orioles with a chance to get off on the right foot. Unfortunately, a costly error in the seventh doomed the Yankees as they fell to the O’s 6-5 at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Yankees got on the board in the top of the first on a RBI single by Matt Holliday. In the third, Holliday added to his RBI count by hitting a two-run homer, and in the fifth Gary Sanchez hit his first two-run homer of the season. In an honorable mention, Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and two stolen bases.
Severino went five innings, giving up four runs on six hits while striking out six. Jonathan Holder retired two batters, Tommy Layne retired a batter, Tyler Clippard allowed a run in his inning of work, and Bryan Mitchell pitched a scoreless inning.
— The Yankees will turn to Masahiro Tanaka as they attempt to even the series at a game apiece. Kevin Gausman will start for the Orioles. First pitch is at 4:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network and FOX Sports 1.
