Abysmal: Extremely bad; appalling
That’s the word I’d use for tonight’s loss to Baltimore. And thanks to that dreadful showing by the Yankees, their Division lead is down to two games.
Hiroki Kuroda didn’t help his own cause when he gave up two singles and a sac fly to start the second inning. It put the O’s up 1-0.
In that same inning, with a man on second Mark Reynolds blasted a home run into left field to make it 3-0 – he would add a second dinger in the ninth inning of Derek Lowe which gave the Orioles a 5-0 lead.
One positive – look, I’m trying here – was that Kuroda pitched into the ninth inning. He gave up four earned runs on eight hits, struck out four and didn’t walk a batter – he gave up another home run in the sixth to J.J. Hardy.
The Yankees offense was held to just four hits by Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. He struck out nine and walked one. The fifth Yankees’s hit was Granderson’s home run which came off of Brian Matusz in the ninth.
If you have anything to add, please do so in the comments. I’m going to drink some wine… (Yeah, yeah it’s just a game blah blah blah.)
