Sunday’s loss, like Saturday’s, featured a wasted efficiency from a foundational rotation piece. All-star left-hander John Means pitched six innings of one-run ball, utilizing decreased velocity with improved command to nice impact. However like Dean Kremer earlier than him, Means received little backing from the offense. Renato Núñez’s wall-scraping house run within the second accounted for all of Baltimore’s scoring. New York’s Tyler Wade tied the sport with a homer within the third, however Means prevented additional injury over the remainder of his outing.
Dillon Tate, a former Yankees farmhand the Orioles acquired in buying and selling Zack Britton to New York in 2018, changed Means within the seventh and retired the primary 5 Yankees he confronted. However he allowed Aaron Hicks’s two-out single after which an infield single from Clint Frazier that Núñez couldn’t make a clear play on, organising Torres to drive in each together with his double off left-hander Tanner Scott.
