After six innings, the Yankees were facing a huge deficit during the first game of a three-game set. However, the Yankees puled off something unbelievable by climbing out of a 9-1 hole and demolishing the Baltimore Orioles 14-11 in 10 innings at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees got on the board in the bottom of the fifth on a homer by Aaron Judge. In the sixth, Didi Gregorius hit a RBI ground out, followed by a two-run home run by Judge. In the bottom of the seventh, Jacoby Ellsbury hit a grand slam. In the ninth, Ellsbury hit into a force out, and Starlin Castro hit a two-run home run. Finally in the 10th, Matt Holliday hit a three-run home run.
CC Sabathia went 5.2 innings, giving up seven runs on nine hits while striking out six. Bryan Mitchell allowed four runs after retiring two batters, Jonathan Holder pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, Tyler Clippard pitched a scoreless inning and Chapman pitched a scoreless frame.
