Yankees let one get away in Baltimore

CC Sabathia

Buck Showalter intended to use a left-handed starter to weaken the Yankees offense. What he seems to have done is weaken their defense just enough for a 4-3 Orioles win at Camden Yards. CC Sabathia was throwing a gem until David Adams — starting at first base in place of left-handed hitting Lyle Overbay — charged a slow roller instead of covering the bag. The miscue put two on with no outs, and Manny Machado doubled in both runs before scoring on another infield single to tie the game at 3. An inning later, Nate McLouth — who’d broken up Sabathia’s no hitter an inning earlier — homered to put the Orioles in front. Orioles spot starter T.J. McFarland allowed three runs through 2.2 innings, but an inexperienced first baseman cost the Yankees, and their offense couldn’t score against the Baltimore bullpen. Brett Gardner had two hits and Robinson Cano had three, but an early 3-0 lead vanished and the Yankees couldn’t get it back.
