Holliday and Sanchez homer in 6-5 loss to Orioles

Yankees @ Orioles
FINAL: Orioles 6, Yankees 5
WIN: Donnie Hart (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
LOSS: Tyler Clippard (0-1, 4.50 ERA)

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.

What’s Next?

— 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.

    I actually like what I saw from young Mr Severino last night. Rushing down the hill a little in the first but smoothed it out after that. The homer to Manny? No shame there, he'll get 30 other pitchers this year. The walk before the homer can't happen. Up 5-1, no free passes. He'll learn how to pitch with a lead. I thought he should've and could've we out for the 6th. We're over using The pen already. We need to stick with these guys a little more, they won't be perfect but you have to eat up innings during the regular season. I know every game counts and you need to get every win possible. But you need to manage the season as a whole also. We used all those pitchers and still got the loss. Anyone who thought we wouldn't miss Miller and the pen would be stronger, exhibit A

      Agreed. When I saw Severino in the first I was like oh not again. He had problem with slider delivery (finishing off toward 1st line). He also made a dangerous slow down on that delivery when he broke off the follow through. That was not good for his elbow.

      In 2nd, 3rd and 4th, he went all thru toward home plate on all pitches (Yup included sliders). That was beautiful. In 5th, he reverted to old habit after 80 pitches. Unfortunately, he finally went through and Manny saw that.

      I hope he read his game video real well because those 3 innings were freaking outstanding. Staying with it can make him 2.5-3.2 ERA a season guy easily.

    terrible infield defense so far-miss Didi, and although he can't hit anymore, really miss Tex-Bird looks very shaky there so far-headley could make 25 errors or more this year without Tex saving him. Castro's already missed two balls that led to runs although both were scored hits. Ground balls getting thru like crazy all over the infield-ugh!!
