Orioles try to build on walk-off win vs. Yankees

(Sports Network) - After capturing a walk-off victory in the opener on Friday, the first-place Baltimore Orioles will attempt to take control of their weekend set with the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon at Camden Yards.

With the score tied in the bottom of the 10th inning, Manny Machado stroked a leadoff double and Nick Hundley plated him two batters later to lift the Orioles to a 3-2 victory.

Baltimore rallied from two runs down in the fourth inning when Steve Pearce scored on a wild pitch and Chris Davis drove home a run with a sacrifice fly, his 46th RBI of the year.

After Miguel Gonzalez pitched eight strong innings, allowing six hits, zero walks and two earned runs while striking out five, T.J. McFarland (3-2) earned the win by pitching a perfect 10th inning.

"I think it really speaks to the depth of our bullpen (and) the quality of our bullpen," Hundley said. "McFarland comes in, does a great job going through the beginning of their order 1-2-3. And then with the offense that we have and the staunch bullpen, that combination lends itself to be successful, either late in the game or extra innings."

The Yankees wasted an impressive outing from Hiroki Kuroda and Adam Warren (1-5) surrendered the game-winning run.

Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson both belted solo home runs for the visitors, their fifth and sixth of the season, respectively.

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Saturday as Shane Greene attempts to build upon the momentum created in his first-career start.

After walking three batters in just a third of an inning in his major league debut on April 24, Greene impressed when he was recalled for a July 7 start against the Indians, earning the win after allowing just two earned runs over six innings of work.

"It was a dream come true," Greene said of his first win. "There's no question about that."

With Ubaldo Jimenez headed to the disabled list due to a right ankle sprain suffered on Wednesday, Chris Tillman will get the start for Baltimore today.

Kevin Gausman will be recalled to replace Jimenez on the roster and is set to get the starting assignment on Sunday.

The right-handed Tillman has followed up back-to-back winning starts with a pair of no-decisions. That includes Monday's outing versus Washington, won by Baltimore 8-2. Tillman allowed a pair of runs over seven innings, striking out seven.

Tillman is 7-4 on the year with a 4.11 ERA and 5-4 lifetime versus the Yankees with a 5.83 ERA.

The Orioles have won three straight over the Yankees and five of the seven meetings this season.
