Yankees 7, Orioles 8: Early lead turns into another extra innings marathon loss

The Yankees gave up an early lead and got trounced in extra innings. Heading into today’s game, the Yankees weren’t exactly rolling with their A lineup. However, given the fact that they were up against someone named Mike Wright Jr., you would never have noticed. They broke out early against the worst pitcher in the American League, who lived up to his title in quick fashion. It’s just too bad they got it all out of their system after that, because they sure could have used these bats later in the game. In the first, Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge both reached on hits. Neil Walker...

The Neil Walker signing has already proven to be invaluable

Some core position players may miss time to start the season, but Neil Walker can step up big time. For most of the spring, the Yankees have avoided the injury bug. Aside from Jacoby Ellsbury starting the season on the disabled list, all of the Yankees’ essential players worked through spring training without a concern. That luck fell apart recently, with Brandon Drury getting plunked on his elbow and Greg Bird suffering from inflammation in his foot. Neither player has a timetable to return just yet, but the Yankees have to plow ahead without them as the season starts on Thursday. Having...
