The New York Yankees even their series with the Baltimore Orioles behind a dominant Shane Greene

The New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday evening.  The game took place at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland and the final score was 3-0.  Shane Greene started for the Yankees and pitched great.  The bullpen shut the door with David Robertson picking up his 23rd save in 25 chances this season.  Derek Jeter and Jacoby Ellsbury had big RBI hits in the seventh to give a little bit of a cushion. 

Greene pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings giving up four hits.  He walked two and struck out nine and won his second game of the season and his career.  David Huff gave up a hit to the only batter that he faced, Shawn Kelley pitched 2/3 of an inning striking out one and Robertson pitched a perfect inning for his 23rd save.  He struck out two batters. 

Chris Tillman lost his fifth game of the season pitching 6 2/3 innings and giving up seven hits and three runs.  He walked three and struck out four.  T.J. McFarland pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up two hits and walking one and Ryan Webb pitched two perfect innings with a strikeout. 

Jeter had two hits and an RBI, Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and Mark Teixeira had a hit, an RBI and drew two walks.  McCann had three hits, Kelly Johnson had a hit and Francisco Cervelli had a hit.  Teixeira and Ellsbury each hit a double and the Yankees were 4-11 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. 

Nick Markakis had two hits, Steve Pearce had a hit and drew a walk and Manny Machado had a hit and drew a walk.  Flaherty had a hit and the Orioles were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Flaherty had a stolen base and Markakis and Jones each had an outfield assist. 

In the third Teixeira hit an RBI double to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the seventh Jeter had an RBI single and Ellsbury had an RBI single to give the Yankees a 3-0 lead and that would be the final score.  The two teams have split the first two games and the rubber game is on Sunday night.
