Looks like the Yankees are already planning for an American League Wild Card showdown with the Minnesota Twins.

Still, Ynoa pitched well for his second Orioles start, allowing two earned runs to a Yankees offense that had scored in double digits five times in the first seven meetings betweenthe teams in NY. The shortstop is having a very nice season at the dish.

Ynoa lasted 4 1/3 innings and was charged with three runs (two earned) on five hits. Since Manny Machado hit a game-winning homer off Dellin Betances on September 5, the Orioles are 1-9 in their last 10 games.

In order to finish at.500, the Orioles will need to win nine of their final 13 games.

"This was probably the toughest one we've had", Bruce said (see full recap).

Gregorius, who is hitting.375 (21-for-56) against Baltimore this season, hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning off Gabriel Ynoa (1-2) and hit a two-run homer in the fifth off Miguel Castro before lifting another sacrifice fly off Richard Bleier.

Baltimore is pitching to a 16.43 ERA in the first three games of this series, continuing a trend of sub-par pitching no matter where they face the Yankees.

"It hurt a lot". "I really haven't gone through anything like that".

"After the second inning, I was trying to get on top of (my slider), and it worked", Severino said. I'm kind of fighting myself, fighting my delivery. "I think sometimes that's the perspective people get is you just have surgery and it fixes it".

While the Orioles have slumped badly, their offense has led the way. They have also tallied at least eight runs in six consecutive home games versus Baltimore, their longest such home streak in the last 100 years against another club.

But, it's the pitching that's most on manager Buck Showalter's mind. They have scored 150 runs this season against Baltimore after Didi Gregorius and Greg Bird hit three-run homers before Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer in Saturday's 9-3 victory. He allowed three runs in five innings on Monday in Toronto, but he pitched better than his line indicated. "That's a bad combination. You go back through it after every game like we do, there's a lot of bad pitches being made, some stuff that isn't up to what they're capable of taking out there".

The Orioles had just three hits against Severino, their last hit of the game coming on Pedro Álvarez's two-out double in the fifth. Two were from J.J. Hardy, who played for the first time since he broke his wrist on June 18. "Get the first hit and carry it into a couple more good ABs and putting a good swing on a good pitch to hit that last [one]".

Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo, who did not play Saturday also are struggling.

Joey Rickard started in left and Tim Beckham was the designated hitter for the first time this season. The Orioles will purchase the contract of LHP Tanner Scott from Double-A Bowie and add him to the active roster Sunday. Room must be created on the 40-man to add Scott.
