The New York Yankees four game winning streak ends as Phil Hughes is roughed up

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Baltimore Orioles by the score of 5-3 on Saturday evening. The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. Phil Hughes started for the Yankees and was terrible. The Yankees bullpen was very good especially David Phelps who kept the Yankees in the game and gave them a chance to come back and win. Robinson Cano continued his hot hitting with two hits, Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay and Francisco Cervelli also each had two hits. 
Hughes pitched three innings giving up nine hits and five runs with two walks and no strikeouts. He took the loss his second of the season. Phelps pitched four innings giving up one hit and striking out six, Joba Chamberlain gave up a hit in one inning and David Robertson struck out one in his one inning of work.

Overbay had two hits and an RBI, Cano hit a double, Hafner and Wells each hit a homerun. The Yankees were 1-9 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base. Phelps committed an error, Suzuki had an outfield assist and Wells had an outfield assist.

Jason Hammel started for the Orioles and picked up his second win of the season. He pitched six innings giving up eight hits and three runs with two of them being earned. He walked one and struck out four. Brian Matusz pitched an inning giving up a hit, Darren O’Day pitched an inning giving up two hits and striking out one and Jim Johnson worked a perfect inning to pick up his fifth save of the season.

Hardy had a hit and an RBI. Ryan Flaherty had a hit and an RBI and Reimold had a hit and an RBI. McLouth hit two doubles and Davis hit a double. Flaherty, Markakis, Reimold each hit a homerun. The Orioles were 0-10 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. Hardy committed an error.

Jones hit an RBI groundout in the first inning to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead. Flaherty hit a solo homerun to make it 2-0 Orioles in the second inning. In the bottom of the second Hafner hit a solo homerun and Overbay hit an RBI single to tie the game at two. Markakis hit a solo homerun in the third and Hardy grounded out to score another run. The Orioles took a 4-2 lead and then tacked on another run in the fourth on a Reimold solo homerun. It was 5-2 Orioles, that was the last run the Orioles would score as Hughes departed the game. Wells hit a solo homerun in the sixth to make it 5-3 but that was the final score as the Yankees failed to get anyone else home, they had some chances but couldn’t get the big hit to make it closer or even tie the game.

The Yankees win streak ended at four and their record dropped to 5-5. The Orioles record improved to 6-5. The two teams will play the rubber game of the three game series on Sunday night.
