Key Highlights of Wednesday’s Victory

After Cedric Mullins hit a tiebreaking double off Clay Holmes in the 10th inning, stole third, and scored on a throwing error by New York catcher Jose Trevino, the Orioles held on to win 7-6 to even the series. Mullins’ grip hit happened after Yennier Cano and Craig Kimbrel consolidated to blow a four-run lead the Orioles took on a two-show homer to Ramon Urias in the fifth inning alongside a couple of run-scoring duplicates from Ryan O’Hearn and one more from Ryan Mountcastle that put Baltimore up 5-1.

Seventh Inning Struggles

Cano gave up a three-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton in the seventh inning, and Kimbrel allowed a tying single to Stanton in the ninth before moving to extra innings. “It’s a big win,” Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde said. “You know things were going well and then they weren’t. That seventh inning, just a couple of misplays or plays that we normally make and Stanton hits the big homer there. But in the end, we made some plays and they made some plays, too. Really happy with how we battled, we competed. You can give up the lead and continue to fight offensively. It shows a lot about our club and it was a heck of a win.”

Historical Context and Upcoming Challenge

Baltimore is 4-2 against the Yankees this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Orioles can break a tie for the longest streak of series wins vs. division foes since divisions were created in 1969, having already equaled the mark shared by the Atlanta Braves (1998-2000), Milwaukee Brewers (1991-92), and Cincinnati Reds (1975, 1969-70).

Yankees’ Recent Performance and Injuries

The Yankees are attempting to avoid dropping a second straight series as they enter play Thursday with four losses in their past six games. New York, which has 14 victories in its past 20 games, has not lost consecutive series all season. Playing without Aaron Judge on Wednesday, the Yankees finished with nine hits, eight of them after the fifth inning. Judge was held out as a precaution after getting hit on the left hand in the third inning on Tuesday by a pitch from Albert Suarez. The Yankees are unsure if he will sit again in the series finale. “Seemed better but not much to report on over the last several hours and during the game,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I would say (Thursday is) a maybe. We’ll see how we look when we come in.”

Pitching Matchup

Yankees right-hander Luis Gil (9-1, 2.03 ERA) will start on Thursday, looking to join the Kansas City Royals’ Seth Lugo and the Philadelphia Phillies’ Ranger Suarez as the third 10-game winner in the majors this season. Gil is 9-0 with a 1.64 ERA over his past 11 starts and has allowed one run or none in nine of those outings. Gil last pitched on Friday in an 8-1 win at Boston, when he allowed one run on four hits in five innings while throwing a career-high 104 pitches. Gil pitched two-hit ball for 6 1/3 shutout innings to earn a win on May 1 in Baltimore. He is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two career starts against the Orioles.

The Orioles will give the ball to southpaw Cole Irvin (6-3, 3.03 ERA). During his latest performance, he gave up four runs (three of which were earned) on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings in a 6-3 defeat to the Atlanta Braves on June 13. In the earlier season meeting in Baltimore, Irvin did not encounter the Yankees. The southpaw has a record of 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA in three previous games (including two starts) against New York.


The Orioles are near leaving a mark on the world with their 22nd straight series triumph over rivals in the AL East. The group’s success on Wednesday featured their sturdiness and drive, and they expect to keep up with this energy for Thursday’s last game. In the interim, the Yankees hope to recover and avoid losing consecutive series. The two groups are ready for a thrilling finish to the series because of a captivating pitching matchup.
