The New York Yankees fail to sweep the Baltimore Orioles

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday afternoon.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 4-1.  CC Sabathia started for the Yankees and he pitched ok and Chad Green was good out of the bullpen.  The Yankees offense only had five hits. 

Sabathia pitched 6 2/3 innings giving up seven hits and four runs with a walk and two strikeouts.  He lost his eighth game of the season and Green pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up two hits and he struck out one. 

Chris Tillman won his 14th game of the season pitching seven innings and giving up four hits and a run with two walks and seven strikeouts.  Brad Brach pitched an inning giving up a hit and Zach Britton saved his 30th game of the season pitching a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

Brett Gardner had a hit and drew a walk, Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit and Brian McCann drew a walk.  Didi Gregorius had a hit, Starlin Castro had a hit and an RBI and Ronald Torreyes had a hit.  Gregorius hit a double and the Yankees were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Sabathia committed an error. 

Jonathan Schoop had two hits and two RBI, Manny Machado had two hits and Chris Davis drew a walk.  J.J. Hardy had two hits and two RBI, Caleb Joseph had two hits and Julio Borbon had a hit.  Schoop hit a double and the Orioles were 3-10 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. 

In the first Hardy hit a two run single to give the Orioles a 2-0 lead.  In the second Castro hit an RBI single to cut the lead to 2-1.  In the seventh Schoop hit a two run double to push the Orioles lead to 4-1 and that would be the final score of the game. 

The Yankees took three out of four in the series.  They will remain at home and begin a three game series with the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.
