Travis HafnerVidal Nuno finally allowed a run, and it came in the cruelest of circumstances. With the game tied in the 10th, the Yankees rookie reliever coughed up a walk-off home run to Nate McLouth, giving the Orioles a stunning 3-2 win at Camden Yards. It was the first run Nuno had allowed after nine scoreless innings. Yankees starter Phil Hughes rebounded from his previous debacle to give the Yankees six solid innings, allowing two runs and striking out five. One night after his dramatic, game-tying home run, Travis Hafner provided the Yankees’ early offense with a pair of RBI singles. He drove in Brett Gardner (who had doubled in the first inning), and Vernon Wells (who had doubled in the fourth), but the Orioles kept pace because of former Yankees outfielder Chris Dickerson. With Adam Jones bothered by a sore right leg, Dickerson got a rare start in center field for the Orioles. He entered the game with one home run this season, then took Hughes deep twice. His first solo shot tied the game at 1 in the third inning, and his second tied the game at 2 in the fifth.
