New York Wins 2 of 3 v. Baltimore

June 30: New York 9, Baltimore 8

Both starters were absolutely shellacked, and the game was knotted at seven after three innings. From there it calmed down and was a completely different game, a game that New York won by a score of 2-1. 17 of the 18 batters in the game got either one or two hits, and Babe Ruth, the only one to go hitless, still reached twice on walks.

Things calmed down a bit the next day. O’s starter Johnny Niggeling gave up just two hits, both singles, but couldn’t find the strike zone and walked seven. All four NY runs were scored by Yankees who had drawn a base on balls from Niggeling. Meanwhile, Waite Hoyt was sharp for NY.

July 2: Baltimore 4, New York 3

Baltimore finally got a strong performance from their starting pitcher in the finale. Erik Bedard limited the Yanks to a two-run Lou Gehrig homer in the first in his seven innings. Darren O’Day gave up another run in the ninth to let New York get within a run. Tony Lazzeri was standing on second with two outs in the bottom of the ninth when Zach Britton came in to face Bill Dickey, and rung him up on a strikeout to close the game. After issuing nine walks the day before, the Baltimore staff didn’t walk a soul in this one.

Adam Jones reached four times on three singles and a walk.

The Orioles enter the All-Star break just two games behind Boston for the Original Division lead.
