Holliday reaches 2,000 career hits in 5-4 loss to Orioles 1


Yankees @ Orioles
FINAL: Orioles 5, Yankees 4
WIN: Mychal Givens (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
LOSS: Dellin Betances (0-1, 6.75 ERA)

After Friday’s crushing loss, the Yankees hoped Masahiro Tanaka could get the team back in the win column, especially after his abysmal Opening Day start. Unfortunately, the Yankees once again blew an early lead, which resulted in a 5-4 loss at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Yankees got on the board in the top of the second on a two-run single from Ronald Torreyes. The Yankees scored two more in the fifth on a balk and a RBI single by Starlin Castro

In an honorable mention, Matt Holliday singled in the first inning, which made him the seventh active player to record 2,000 hits.

Tanaka went five innings and gave up three runs on six hits while striking out five. Adam Warren went 1.1 scoreless innings, Tommy Layne failed to retire a batter, Betances gave up two runs in 0.2 innings of work and Jonathan Holder pitched a scoreless inning.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will attempt to salvage the final game of this series, and they’ll send CC Sabathia to the mound after a dominant performance against the Tampa Bay Rays. Wade Miley will start for the Orioles. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
