Baltimore Orioles Defeat the New York Yankees 4-2
The Baltimore Orioles opened up a divisional series against the New York Yankees Monday night at Camden Yards. The Orioles and Yankees both had poor records entering this game, and they were tied for last place in the American League East. The Orioles opened the series with a Win behind a strong outing from starting pitcher Matt Harvey. Harvey went six innings, allowing three hits, five strikeouts and just one run allowed. Cedric Mullins provided offensive support for Harvey’s start tonight. He continued his good start to the 2021 season by launching a ball to Eutaw Street in his first at-bat giving the Birds a 1-0 lead. The Orioles extended their lead from a Freddy Galvis double, scoring Pedro Severino. In the seventh, Mullins was back at it and launched a 418 foot blast into centerfield extending their lead 4-1. The Yankees would score in the eighth off a Gio Urshela single but it wasn’t enough as the Orioles won the game 4-2. Mullins ended the day 3-4 with two HRs and a double improving his average to .365 on the season. Great team win by the O’s against a struggling Yankees team. Game two is tomorrow at 7:05.
