The New York Yankees faced the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium. The Orioles won the first game of the series 6 to 4.
Last night, the New York Yankees came all the way back after going behind in the latter innings of the game to force extra innings. Jose Trevino came on the plate with a tie at six at the end of the 11th inning and delivered in the clutch.
“JOSE TREVINO HOT IT!! WHAT A NIGHT!” – @ Talkin’ Americans
Trevino’s walk-off base hit was on his late father’s birthday. It was a really emotional moment. Trevino took to Twitter to share it with the baseball world.
“Hey dad, happy birthday, love you and miss you! Check out our @Yankees moment…just like in the backyard” – @Jose Trevino
Such touching words, “…like in the backyard.”
New York Yankees Walk-off vs. Baltimore: First to 30 wins in MLB
The Yankees improved their record on the season to 30-13 after the walk-off win over division rivals Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees are the first team to have 30 wins this season and are playing like the best team in all of baseball.
Jordan Montgomery started the game for the Yankees. He went six innings and conceded only two earned runs. Reliver Michael King only threw two-thirds of an inning but allowed three earned runs. It looked like the Orioles were going to win easily as they took a 5-3 lead in the seventh inning.
The Yankees responded with two more runs of their own in the seventh inning to restart the game and force extra innings. The two teams would remain scoreless in the 10th inning before the Orioles scraped over a run in the 11th to take a 6-5 lead.
The Yankees tied the game at the end of the 11th inning after a base hit by shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa that scored for Gleyber Torres.
“Isiah Kiner-Falefa ties the game with an RBI singles midway. It’s 6-6 in 11th.” – @ Bryan High
Then Jose Trevino came to the plate and left for the Americans. The Yankees now enjoy a 4.5 game lead in the American League East and play the series’ rubber match against Baltimore today. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. EDT.
