Whatever. I didn’t want home field advantage for the WC game anyway. The Yankees followed up yesterday afternoon’s loss by completing the wrong side of the sweep in the nightcap and dropping both games to the Orioles. They’ve lost 5 of 6 and 8 of 13 as they stumble into the postseason.
Can’t put this one on Luis Severino. He gave up a solo home run to Nolan Reimold on the second pitch of the game and got into big trouble in the bottom of the 1st, but he held that damage at 2 runs and settled down quickly to turn in a pretty good start. Manny Machado bopped a solo shot off him in the 3rd for Baltimore’s third run, then Severino worked the next 4 innings efficiently and scorelessly to keep his team in the game.
