Yankees Blanked By Orioles
Jake Arrieta pitched eight innings of five-hit ball Wednesday night, and the Baltimore Orioles ended Ivan Nova’s 15-game winning streak with a 5-0 victory over the New York Yankees.
Matt Wieters homered and hit an RBI double, Nick Markakis also connected and Baltimore earned a rare series win in New York with a team pitching effort not seen since the days of Jim Palmer and Mike Flanagan.
The Orioles lost the first game of the series 2-1 and won the middle game 7-1. With Arrieta’s effort, the Orioles held the Yankees to two runs or fewer in three straight games in the Bronx for the first time since 1978, when Don Stanhouse joined Palmer and Flanagan in accomplishing the feat.
