Should Yankee Fans be worried? After winning 21 out of 24, the team has now lost 4 out of 5, and 3 in a row. All the bad habits of October 2010 to April 2022 seem to have come back.
You would think that being at home, with Gerrit Cole starting, against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees should be favored. And if I told you that Cole would go 8 innings, striking out 11 and walking none, you probably would have thought that the Yankees would win easily.
They didn't. Cole allowed 4 runs in the 4th inning, and a home run in the 6th. Aaron Judge hit 2 home runs, but that only got the Yankees to a 4-4 tie, before the Ramon Urias homer that Cole allowed in the 6th. The O's added a run in the 9th, and despite getting a leadoff walk, the Yankees did not live up to the Cliché Alert.
Orioles 6, Yankees 4. WP: Jordan Lyles (3-4). SV: Jorge Lopez (6). LP: Cole (4-1). And with the Tampa Bay Rays winning last night, the Yankees now lead the American League Eastern Division by 4 1/2 games.
The series continues tonight. Jordan Montgomery starts -- don't expect a lot of runs -- against Bruce Zimmerman.
