Yankees Fall to Orioles
Wei-Yin Chen pitched seven innings of four-hit ball, Adam Jones homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees 5-2 Tuesday night.
J.J. Hardy drove in two runs for Baltimore, which earned a split of the two-game series and improved to 1-4 at home against New York.
Chen (4-0) allowed two runs, struck out four and walked two in a masterful performance. Making his seventh major league start, the 26-year-old Taiwan native took a shutout into the seventh inning and retired 10 straight before Robinson Cano’s leadoff double.
Two outs later, Curtis Granderson hit his 13th home run, an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the 7-foot wall in left — a fan wearing a Yankees jacket knocked his glove into the mitt of outfielder Xavier Avery.
