Manny Machado hit a two-run, walk-off home run off Dellin Betances in the ninth inning to cap a six-run Orioles comeback and hand the Yankees a 7-6 loss on Tuesday night in Baltimore. >> Box score


The Yankees scored six runs in the third inning to go up 6-1. However, CC Sabathia allowed five runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- in 5 1/3 innings to make it 6-5 by the end of the sixth.

New York's bullpen was lights-out until Betances took the mound in the ninth. He retired the first two batters he faced, but a walk to Tim Beckham followed by a mistake up in the zone to Machado sent the Orioles home happy and snapped the Yankees' three-game winning streak.

Bryan Mitchell allowed three runs in the top of the 11th inning after the Yankees didn't score with the bases loaded in the 10th inning as New York lost the rubber game of a three-game series to the Baltimore Orioles, 7-4, Sunday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Will Jay Bruce ever be traded? 00:05:17
The Baseball Night in New York panel discusses the trade market for Jay Bruce and which teams he would fit the best with.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson is operating under a mandate not to spend on new players until he removes money currently on the payroll, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

While Alderson is notorious for wanting to begin the season with budget space to make in-season deals, which he has done the past two years, I hope this is not accurate considering the organization is coming off back-to-back postseason appearances.

In either case, Alderson obviously wants to trade Jay Bruce and his $13 million salary for an established, high-leverage, right-handed relief pitcher, then use his remaining money to sign a left-handed reliever and any pitcher willing to accept a minor-league deal.

The Toronto Blue Jays could try to deal for New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner if they don't re-sign Jose Bautista, according to Hardball Talk's Ashley Varela.

Bautista and the Blue Jays are far off in contract negotiations, according to the Toronto Star's Richard Griffin. Bautista, 36, rejected a one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer and is seeking a four-year deal worth $100 million, according to Griffin.

If the Blue Jays cannot reach a deal with Bautista, who has been with the Blue Jays since 2008 and hit at least 35 home runs in four of the past seven seasons, then Toronto might look to check in on Gardner, for whom Yankees GM Brian Cashman has fielded inquiries.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Blue Jays have serious interest in Gardner, Varela notes, but they would be the second division rival that has reportedly been linked to Gardner. The Baltimore Orioles were linked to him in December.

The Orioles, who had interest in Frank Viola for their pitching coach vacancy, have hired Roger McDowell for the position, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.

Viola has been the pitching coach for Triple-A Las Vegas since 2014. He interviewed for, but did not get, the Twins' pitching coach job after the 2014 season.

McDowell, who pitched for the Mets from 1985 to 1989, had spent the last 11 seasons as the pitching coach for the Braves.

He tipped his cap to the crowd as it offered a standing ovation, patting his chest with his glove and saying, "Thank you."

And with that, one of baseball's most prolific switch-hitters said goodbye to the game.

This is not exactly how the Yankees wanted to start out a crucial series against one of the teams they are chasing in the Wild Card race. The pitching early on was awful and the offense was invisible start to finish. In the bigger picture, they lost a starting pitcher, which will force an important decision crucial to the remainder of the season.

The Yankees came into Sunday's contest without a three-game series sweep all season, and that didn't change. The Yankees' offense Friday and Saturday was clicking on all cylinders, but ran out of gas Sunday.

After a lackluster start, the Yankees treaded water, hovering around the .500 mark for much of the season. August has been a different story. While it's been a productive month, the Yankees have yet to make a significant statement all season. Tonight's demolition of the Orioles could be the start to one, and it comes at the right time with Baltimore in town. The Yanks are now just three back in the loss column with 35 games to play.

New York Yankees RHP Michael Pineda pitched six scoreless innings and left seven runners on base in a 5-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.

Pineda (4-9) threw 113 pitches, including 21 in a 1-2-3 first inning. He escaped a two-on, two-out jam in the second inning; bases-loaded, one-out jam in the fourth inning; and left runners in scoring position in the fifth and sixth innings.

"When you can get outs with runners in scoring position, those are the most crucial outs of a game," manager Joe Girardi said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "That's usually the difference in a game."

Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius combined to go 4 for 7 with four RBIs, and three New York Yankees pitchers shut down the Baltimore Orioles in a 7-1 win on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.

Castro hit a two-run home run in the second inning that gave New York a 2-0 lead and hit a two-run double in the sixth inning that made it 5-1, as the Yankees won their third straight game and climbed above .500.

"It's big for us," Castro said, according to the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand, on getting above .500. "I think that's the way that we're looking to be at that point. I think we are a great team. We just keep positive and keep fighting, I think that we're going to be good."

This series is the most important one of the season to date. If the Yankees manage a sweep, they pull within 4 1/2 games of the Orioles and the narrative of selling before the non-waiver trade deadline could surely get swept under the rug by ownership that has little inclination to quit.

New York Yankees LHP Aroldis Chapman blew his first save of the season in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth inning, Chapman gave up a two-run single to Matt Wieters, and his failure to back up home plate after Jacoby Ellsbury's throw from center field bounced past Brian McCann allowed Francisco Pena to score from first and give Baltimore a two-run lead.

"I felt there was no chance of getting the guy out," Chapman told reporters about not backing up the plate.

The New York Yankees expressed frustration with their offense after losing to the Baltimore Orioles, 1-0, Thursday at Camden Yards despite starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka throwing eight scoreless innings.

The Yankees went 2-7 on a nine-game road trip in which they scored three or fewer runs seven times. In that same time, Yankees starters allowed two or fewer runs four times.

"It's kind of been the story of the season," first baseman Mark Teixeira told reporters after the game. "We just haven't hit. It's not rocket science. We just need to execute better."

The New York Yankees scored more than three runs for just the second time in their last 10 games as they ended a six-game losing streak with a 7-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday at Camden Yards.

Brian McCann went 3 for 5 with three RBIs, while Jacoby Ellsbury reached base five times with a double, two singles and two walks.

New York averaged 2.2 runs per game during its six-game losing streak that dropped the Yankees to last place in the division. The Yankees scored three or fewer runs in 16 of their previous 19 games, a stretch they went 5-14 in.

The New York Yankees might very well play in the tightest division in Major League Baseball. That is not to suggest the AL East is the best of them all, but simply to convey that it is full of teams that each have an argument as to why they can win the division.

A quick look at each AL East club will demonstrate why the Yankees have as good a shot at the AL East title as their opponents.
