Tonight, the Orioles lost 4-2 to the Yankees on a rainy, dreary night at Camden Yards. The numbers may show that pitcher Chris Tillman pitched well despite the loss; however, he was hurt by his defense - which committed three errors - and found himself in jams at times.
Of course, C.C. Sabathia came through for the Bronx Bombers against the Birds. He went seven innings and gave up two runs on the night, earning the win.
Baltimore took a 2-0 lead - an RBI-single from Garrett Atkins in the second and Jones in the third; however, the Yankees scored in the fourth, twice in the sixth, and once again in the eighth inning.
The Orioles managed ten hits on the night, but left ten on base and could not at all get the big ones needed to give them the advantage.
Now Baltimore is 16-43 and their death spiral seems to have no end. Amazingly, Jake Arrieta is making his major league debut against the New York Yankees on Thursday night. I don't know if I would have had him start against the Yankees - keep in mind, Washington had Stephen Strasburg face Pittsburgh - but I guess the team needs all the pitching help they can get.
