Rizzo Not Happy with ‘Spiteful’ Umpire, Ejection

The Orioles beat the Yankees 9-6 on Thursday, avoiding a four-game sweep. Anthony Santander hit a three-run homer off Lucas Luetge.

New York fell for the 2nd in 11 games but remains a major-league best 28-10. This season, the Yankees are 18-1 when scoring 5 runs or more.

The Yankees were down to their final out in the ninth when DJ LeMahieu tied the game at 6 with an RBI single-off closer to Jorge Lopez.

The Orioles responded when Austin Hays scored on a throwing error by 3rd baseman Josh Donaldson, who’d already pinch-hit earlier in the inning. Trey Mancini singled one out later, & Santander followed with his 7th home run of the season.

When Santander connected, the one and only question were whether it would be okay or foul, so it easily was inside the pole at Camden Yards.

Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run over the left-field wall, which had been moved back 26 1/2 feet for a year now and was described as a “travesty” by New York slugger Aaron Judge in this series. Stanton has become the first Orioles opponent to break through that barrier. He leads the team with 11 home runs and 35 RBI.

Despite this, the Yankees finished their 8-game road trip 6-2.

Orioles pitcher Bryan Baker entered the sixth inning with a bases-loaded jam & no outs. He struck out Gleyber Torres & Aaron Hicks before allowing Isiah Kiner-two-run Falefa’s single to cut New York’s lead to 5-3.

The Orioles took a 6-5 lead in the bottom half thanks to an RBI single by Tyler Nevin, a pinch-hit dedication fly to Cedric Mullins, as well as a single by Rougned Odor off Chad Green.

The Yankees did take a 2-0 lead in the first inning against Orioles Bruce Zimmermann on Stanton’s RBI single off the left-field wall.

Robinson Chirinos’ two-run shot off Yankees Jordan Montgomery tied the game at two in the 2nd. It was the 1st home run at home by a Baltimore catcher this season.

It was only the 2nd time this season that Montgomery allowed more than 2 runs in eight starts.

Nestor Cortes (2-1, 1.35) will start the series opener against the Chicago White Sox & LHP Dallas Keuchel on Friday (2-3, 5.54). Cortez has allowed no more than two earned runs in each of his 7 starts this season.
