The Orioles bean a couple of our players, including the ever so fragile Nunez. Then the ump makes an absurdly ridiculous balk call on CC Sabathia. Our Yankees bounce back by scoring three more runs, getting a triple play, and winning the game!! With Mariano Rivera getting the 7-8-9 save. (Wells-Brett-Ichiro) THAT’S how the game is played in New York.
The Yankees turned a triple play in the eighth inning after Adam Jones dropped Vernon Wells’ fly ball while blowing a bubble for a game-changing, three-run error, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 Friday night for its fourth straight win.
Baltimore started the eighth with two singles off CC Sabathia (2-1), and Manny Machado hit a sharp low liner that second baseman Robinson Cano.
