The New York Yankees shutout the Baltimore Orioles

The New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 5-0.  Michael Pineda started and pitched great and the bullpen finished off the one hit shutout.  Derek Jeter led the offense with three RBI and Jose Pirela in his major league debut had two hits. 

Pineda pitched 7 1/3 innings giving up a hit and a walk with no runs and eight strikeouts.  Pineda earned his fourth win of the season.   Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect inning with a couple of strikeouts, Rich Hill had a walk and a strikeout in 1/3 of an inning and David Phelps retired the only batter that he faced. 

Wei-Yin Chen pitched six innings giving up six hits and four runs with two of them being earned.  He walked two and struck out four and lost his fifth game of the season.  Evan Meek pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a walk with a strikeout, Brian Matusz retired the only batter that he faced and Ryan Webb pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit  and a run with a strikeout.  Joe Saunders pitched to one batter and struck him out. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Jeter had a hit, three RBI and drew a walk and Chris Young drew a walk.  Chase Headley had two hits and an RBI, Francisco Cervelli had a hit and Stephen Drew had a hit.  Ichiro Suzuki had a hit, Pirela had two hits and an RBI and Jeter hit a double.  Pirela hit a triple and Headley hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 1-7 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Suzuki had a stolen base. 

Nick Markakis drew a walk, J.J. Hardy had a hit and Walker drew a walk.  The Orioles left three men on base and Flaherty committed an error. 

In the third Pirela hit an RBI triple and Jeter hit an RBI groundout to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead.  In the fifth Jeter hit a two run double and it was 4-0 Yankees.  Headley hit a solo homerun in the eighth to make it 5-0 and that would be the final score.  The Yankees have won two straight and four out of five.  They have six games left on their schedule and still a very slim chance of making the playoffs.
