The Yankees get pounded by the Orioles to lose their fourth straight

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Baltimore Orioles by the score of 11-5 on Tuesday night. The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. Ivan Nova started for the Yankees and was terrible. The Yankees offense was good early and then went to sleep the rest of the game. Chris Tillman started for the Orioles and was horrible in the first inning and then settled down. The Orioles bullpen also did a good job. The offense of the Orioles was led by Nick Markakis and Wilson Betemit. 
Nova pitched five innings giving up nine runs on ten hits. He walked one and struck out five and lost his fifth game of the season. Boone Logan pitched an inning giving up a hit and striking out two, Cody Eppley pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up a hit and a run and Clay Rapada pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and a run. Tillman won his fourth game of the season pitching five innings giving up eight hits and five runs, four of them were earned. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out three batters. Troy Patton pitched two innings giving up two hits and striking out three, Matt Lindstrom pitched a perfect inning and Luis Ayala pitched an inning giving up a hit.

Derek Jeter had three hits, Curtis Granderson had a hit and an RBI and Robinson Cano had a hit and two RBI. Nick Swisher had a hit, Raul Ibanez had a hit and Eric Chavez had a hit. Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and an RBI, Russell Martin had a hit and an RBI and Ramiro Pena had a hit. Jeter and Ibanez each hit a double. Cano hit a homerun. The Yankees were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and they left six men on base.

Markakis had three hits and two RBI, J.J. Hardy drew a walk and Chris Davis had a hit and four RBI. Adam Jones had a couple of hits, Matt Wieters had a hit and Lew Ford had a hit. Betemit had three hits and two RBI, Mark Reynolds had a hit and an RBI and Omar Quintanilla had a hit and two RBI. Reynolds, Ford, Betemit and Jones each hit a double. Davis and Markakis each hit a homerun. The Orioles were 6-14 with runners in scoring position and they left three men on base. Tillman committed an error and Ford had an outfield assist.

The Yankees scored five runs in the bottom of the first and the Orioles scored seven in the top of the second inning. Cano hit a two run homerun in the first for the Yankees. The Orioles scored all of their runs with two outs and Nova just missed having a ground ball back to him that would of ended the inning with just one run allowed. The big blow for the Orioles was the grand slam by Davis. Betemit hit an RBI double in the third to make it an 8-5 Orioles lead. Betemit hit an RBI single in the fifth to make it 9-5. In the eighth Markakis hit a two run homerun making it 11-5. That would be the final score.

The Yankees have now lost four games in a row and are trying to avoid a three game sweep on Wednesday afternoon. The Yankees record fell to 60-43. The Orioles improved their record to 55-49. They are six games behind the Yankees in the loss column for first place in the AL East.
