Again, here is the video link of the momentous first pitch of Core Four in Home Opener!!

 
Game 2:
Orioles 14, Yankees 5
BAL     3     1     0     3     0     4     0     3     0         14  20     0
NYY    1     0     0     3    0     0     0     1     0         5     13     0

Up until the 5th inning, Yankees were still in the game, trailing 7:4 behind the Orioles. However, the O’s pounded hard in the top of the 6th, making the game lopsided and unwatchable…The only good news is that besides the continuing hot streaks of Ellsbury and Solarte, Soriano’s bat seems to come alive!

NY Yankees    AB    R    H    RBI    BB     SO   AVG
Gardner, B,        4     0    1         1       1        2    .269
Jeter, SS              4     0    1        0      0        1    .250
Ellsbury, CF      4     1     3        0      0        0    .414
Suzuki, I, CF      1     0    0        0      0        0    .429
Beltran, RF        5     0    1         1      0        1    .185
Soriano, A,       4     1     2         1      0        0    .192
McCann, C        4     0    0         0      0       0     .172
Cervelli, 1B      4     1     1          0     0        2    .273
Roberts, B,      3     1     1           0     0       o     .174
Johnson, K,     1     1     1          1      0       0     .238
Solarte, 3B      4     0     2         1       0       0    .458

 

Game 3:

Unlike Game 2 Yankees got pounded, Game 3 should have been a win but wasn’t. Too many missed opportunities and runners on the scoring position left on base. Oh well, that happens in the course of the whole reason but as fierce as the competition it is in the AL East, every game counts and every one-run game will be magnified. Here is the score box:

Orioles 5, Yankees 4

BAL     0     3     0     0     0     0     0     0     2         5     12     0
NYY    0     2     0     1     0     0     0     0     1         4     10     1

NY Yankees         IP    H    R    ER    BB    SO    HR   ERA
Tanaka, M           7.0    7    3            1      10      1      3.21
Thornton             0.1    0    0     0       0       1        0     0.00
Warren                 0.2    1    0     0        1       0        0     0.00
Kelley(L, 0-1)    1.0    4    2      2       0       1         0     4.15

Like his first start against Blue Jays, Tanaka ran into some trouble in the first two innings but settled down very well as the game went on. He had 10 strikeouts in 7 innings! As for Shawn Kelly who just got his first career save in Game 1, he didn’t really pitch poorly. Just a few bloops made the O’s jump ahead of the Yankees.

 

PS: Up coming next: Red Sox is coming to town to play a 4-game series over the weekends! As Game 1 just wrapped up, Yankees had a nice win, the best so far this reason. Not only did Michael Pineda & David Phelps dominated but also the offense backed the starter up with sufficient run sopport! XD~
