The Orioles went into New York to start a three game series against the division rival New York Yankees.
Game One: Yankees: 14, Orioles: 4
In what was a very depressing game, Yovani Gallardo did not do much to limit the damage. In only 1 1/3 innings, Gallardo allowed eight runs, seven earned, on six hits while striking out nobody and walking one.
Three of the four runs on the night came thanks to two Manny Machado home runs along with an RBI single by Jonathan Schoop in the ninth inning which did not help much at the time since the score was 14-3.
Game Two: Yankees: 13, Orioles: 5
This was probably the worst scenario for any team: back to back night of losing games and allowing multiple runs. Dylan Bundy got the start and did not pitch well at all. Bundy went four innings allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out six and walking three; a pretty mediocre start all around.
The Orioles got their five runs on the day thanks to two Chris Davis home runs, a Mark Trumbo home run and a Hyun Soo Kim RBI single in the ninth inning, doing his best impression of Schoop from the night before.
Game Three: Orioles: 5, Yankees: 0
In a game the O’s needed to win to avoid the sweep, they sent out Kevin Gausman and he delivered. Gausman went seven innings allowing no runs on seven hits while striking out nine and walking nobody. Tommy Hunter made his first appearance as an Oriole after resigning him earlier in the day. Hunter pitched one inning allowing no runs and striking out one.
In the top of the sixth, Steve Pearce broke the tie with a solo home run, making it 1-0. Pearce would later get a two run single, making it 3-0. The lead would later be padded with a Mark Trumbo two run home run, his 40th on the season, giving the Orioles a 5-0 lead which they would hold on to for the win.
With this short road trip ending that featured two games in Washington and three in New York, the Orioles will return home for a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Wade Miley and Marco Estrada will pitch in game one with Ubaldo Jimenez and J.A. Happ going in game two and the series finishing up with Yovani Gallardo and Aaron Sanchez facing off against each other.
