Yankees mount historic comeback in 14-11 win over Orioles 2


Orioles vs. Yankees
FINAL: Yankees 14, Orioles 11 (F/10)
WIN: Aroldis Chapman (1-0, 1.08 ERA)
LOSS: Jayson Aquino (1-1, 7.11 ERA)

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.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will attempt to go for the series win tomorrow afternoon as Michael Pineda takes the mound. Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the Orioles. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    WOW, coming on the heels of a Tanaka masterpiece, this was crazy excitement. At 9-1, I actually changed the channel, fortunately, not for long. I rejoined the program at 9-2.. As Holiday pointed out, the Ellsbury Grand slam gave us hope that we could come all the way back . Two more for Judge who is looking like a stud, Castro, who is playing his ass off and looking like the guy everyone thought he could be. Holiday, now getting it going with another clutch big hit in back to back games. Didi making superlative plays at short in his first game back. …. I'm not going to talk about the pitching, tonight just seemed like no one was going to pitch very well. It was the hitters night and and that wasn't going to stop. A game with a lot of Yankee heroes.

    i changed it as well but picked up again at 11-8 when I saw the score on ESPN-a game for the ages-I like the way this team scores late-that is an intangible that AROD and Tex lacked even when they were hitting well. When sanchez comes back who will bat 9th? tells you how strong this line up can be
