Mark Reynolds led off the bottom of the eighth with a single that dropped into short center field. Ryan Adams lined a single and Nolan Reimold grounded into a force out for the first out of the inning. Colon struck out Robert Andino, but J.J. Hardy singled to left, plating another run and giving the Orioles a 2-0 victory.
The Offense: Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez all went 0-4. Robinson Cano went 0-3 with two strikeouts. The team managed five hits and none of them were for extra bases.
Bartolo Colon: The Yankees really needed a strong outing from a starter, and Colon gave it to them. He went 7.2 innings and gave up just two runs on seven hits. He didn’t walk anyone and struck out four.
Mark Teixeira: Teix was the only one who really was hitting. He went 3-4.
