The Baltimore Orioles put in a four-point shot in the seventh round to beat the New York Yankees 8-7 Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
On his best-at-bat in the match, the bottom team in baseball in the major league first saw Jahmai Jones hit a double that saw two of his teammates step on the plate. Jorge Mateo and Kelvin Gutierrez then hit singles and added two more points to Orioles’ fall.
The relief and defense of the victors later monked the attack on the Bronx Bombardiers. In position during the seventh round, shooter Andrew Heaney (8-9) suffered the backhand.
The victory went to the record of Marcos Diplan (1-0), who only played one round. In that victory, Austin Hays and Cedric Mullins drew home races.
The rays must lay down their brooms
At Tropicana Field, Nick Gordon broke the deadlock with a single push Josh Donaldson home at the start of the ninth inning, and the Minnesota Twins defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5.
Gordon and Luis Arraez each hit three hits and scored two races for the winners, who avoided the scourge in their three-game series in Florida. Former Toronto Blue Jays color bearer Donaldson has crossed the plate on two occasions. The relief Tyler Duffey (3-3) blunted the opponent at the end of the eighth to win the decision. Faced with his former team, Alex Colome completed his 11th campaign save.
For the leaders of the Eastern Division in the American League, Brandon Lowe had a four-goal stroke, his 33rd year of the year. Austin Meadows also extended his arms. Andrew Kittredge (8-3) suffered the loss.
The Red Sox cannot complete the sweep
At Fenway Park, the Cleveland Indians won 11-5 and avoided being swept away in a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox.
Designated hitter Franmil Reyes was the winners’ offensive star. The 26-year-old produced three races and set foot on the plate twice. He finished the game with four hits on the same number of times at home and was the only one who sent the ball off the field for the Indians.
Starter Zach Plesac (10-4) secured the victory, while teammate Emmanuel Clase signed his 21st save of the season. The backhand was added to Kutter Crawford’s record (0-1). On his first career start, the 25-year-old allowed five runs in five hits from a safe spot in just two rounds of work.
