Leading 3-2 going into the 9th inning, the Orioles brought Tyler Wells in to lock down the win. Four batters into the inning, the Yankees scored twice to take the lead. A walk, a single, a flyout and a double steal (one stolen base upheld upon review) set the stage for Brett Gardner’s two-RBI single and Wells exit from the game.
Dillon Tate (0.2 IP) came in and got the final two outs.
Aroldis Chapman retired the side in the O’s half of the ninth and tagged Wells (0.1 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 BB) with the loss. The final score: 4-3.
In the end, the Orioles squandered the three runs that Austin Hays (2 for 4, 2 runs scored, 3 RBI) provided them with his two homeruns. Hays hit a solo homerun in the 6th and a 2-run homerun in the 8th.
