Now that’s more like it.
The Yankees roughed Chris Tillman up once again, getting the Oriole righty for 7 runs (five earned) in 4.1 innings and ultimately beating Baltimore 8-3 in Game 1 of today’s day-night doubleheader. This game represented a delightful turnaround after the Yankees were surprisingly shut down by Jeremy Guthrie last night, and it was a joy to see the Yankees be able to send one of their more questionable lineups out onto the field and see the team respond the way they did. Though it’s likely a case of confirmation bias, it seems like every time Joe Girardi assembles a Z-grade lineup the team ends up scoring a ton of runs.
Nick Swisher paced the offensive attack with a three-hit day, including a big tie-breaking two-run bomb in the 4th, while Eric Chavez, Chris Dickerson and Francisco Cervelli chipped in two hits apiece.
Bartolo Colon labored a bit in the early going but finished strong, completing five innings and striking out six. Cory Wade helped preserve the bullpen for this evening’s contest, soaking up three innings and giving up one run — a solo jack to Mark Reynolds. Boone Logan came on in the ninth and somehow completed the frame without surrendering a run despite giving up two hits.
