With five runs in the first inning, the Yankees felt good Sunday. With the game tied and in the hands of the two bullpens late, they still felt good.
And when they had the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the 12th inning with Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton coming up, of course they felt good.
The early lead didn’t last. The bullpen didn’t hold. And at the end of an ultra-frustrating first week at home, Stanton struck out once again to end an 8-7 Yankees loss to the Orioles.
Craig Gentry’s two-out single off Adam Warren brought home the winning run. Orioles closer Brad Brach got the save, getting out of the bases-loaded jam by inducing Judge to bounce into a double play and then striking out Stanton.
