Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Luke Voit are among the starters who did not travel from Tampa for this one.
This was supposed to be the fifth day of Domingo German, but Michael King gave the go-ahead instead. Don’t worry about Germán getting hurt. Yankees manager Aaron Boone recently stated that Germán is being pushed back to his seventh day as planned.
Not as full of starting lineups as the Yankees pitching staff did in the final weeks of the Spring Games, but a division test nonetheless.
Boone commented on Matt Harvey’s start on Saturday morning. You will remember the right-hander from his time with the New York Mets, but he wants to revive his career at Baltimore. While injured in recent years, Boone said he was “very curious” to see how Harvey is doing. If he plays well enough to do the rotation of the Orioles, New York will see him quite a lot this year.

After a quiet first inning for both sides, Gio Urshela puts the Yankees on the top of the board with a solo home run from Matt Harvey. This flew far over the field wall in the left center.
Baltimore claws its way back to the floor of Michael King’s third with one barrel. Pat Valaika doubles up to put Chance Sisco in third place, and then a Ramon Urias grounder brings the run home.
King has done well overall. He has six punch outs through four innings with one run. Jonathan Loaisiga is from pen to start fifth.
Valaika took Loaisiga far to the left of the thug’s eye, a blast to give Baltimore the lead.
Loaisiga ended his two-inning outing and Luis Cessa came in to throw a goalless seventh. The Yankees’ offensive is still calm after Urshela retreated in the second round.
FINAL: Yankees 1, Orioles 2
The Yankees go quietly in Sarasota as Baltimore takes a 2-1 win. New York only had three goals in the game.
Gerrit Cole starts on Sunday afternoon for the Yankees against the Blue Jays in Dunedin. So look forward to more coverage here at Inside The Pinstripes and thank you for visiting! See you soon.
