The Yankees produced another dramatic ninth-inning comeback Sunday. But this time, they didn’t come out victorious.
Despite Didi Gregorius’ game-tying two-RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, the Yankees fell to Orioles, 7-4, in 11 innings Sunday, failing to complete the sweep against their division rival. Baltimore scored three runs in the top of the 11th on back-to-back RBI singles from Mark Trumbo and Welington Castillo to take the lead for good.
The Bombers defeated Baltimore Friday behind a miraculous eight-run comeback and Matt Holliday’s walk-off homer in the 10th. They couldn’t replicate the extra-inning success in the series finale.
It was a wild and wacky game that featured Orioles manager Buck Showalter getting ejected in the ninth, New York reliever Bryan Mitchell playing an inning at first base and the Yankees loading the bases with one out in the 10th but coming up empty.
Jordan Montgomery started for the Yankees and allowed three earned runs in five-plus innings.
