Yankees Lose Third Straight

Yankees vs Orioles Post Game Recap 7/30

The New York Yankees suffered their third straight loss in the series opener of the series against the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 5-4.

Freddy Garcia was able to give the Yankees an ok start on Monday night despite picking up his 5th loss of the season. Garcia went six innings allowing nine hits, three runs, and had two strikeouts in the losing effort.

July continued to be a tough month for Boone Logan as in 2/3 innings Logan allowed two earned runs on one hit, and one walk.

Yankees injury woes happened again this time to Mark Teixeira who left the game with an apparent wrist injury. Teixeira wasn’t doing well at the plate on Monday going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts but the Yankees could be in big trouble if he is out for an extended period of time.

Eric Chavez had a big game going 2 for 3 with two RBIs, and hit his ninth homerun of the season a solo shot in the seventh inning.

Ichiro was able to hit his 1st homerun in pinstripes going back to back with Chavez for his 100th of his career and fifth of the season in the seventh inning . Suzuki was also able to steal his 18th base of the season after reaching on a fielders choice.

Left fielder Raul Ibanez also was able to hit a homerun for his 14th of the season in the 5th inning, as Ibanez hit well going 2 for 4.

Yankees will look to snap there losing streak and hopefully have Teixeira in the lineup on Tuesday as Ivan Nova (10-4, 4.08) will face Chris Tillman (3-1, 1.66).
