NEW YORK —The Baltimore Orioles quickly fell behind, had their starting
pitcher go out with an injury after three innings and looked lost against
Phil Hughes. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . The finale of the
first key September series for the Orioles in 15 years was not going well. Didnt
matter one bit to Mark Reynolds and his teammates. Reynolds hit a three-run shot
in the sixth inning for his second two-homer game of the weekend series and the
Orioles closed in on the AL East-leading New York Yankees with an 8-3 victory
Sunday. “You look at a lot of young guys in here—they dont even know theyre
in the middle of a playoff race probably,” Reynolds said. “Everyone in heres
having fun, going out and playing hard.” Randy Wolf (1-0) made his first
appearance for Baltimore when starter Chris Tillman left with right elbow
stiffness after the third inning. He helped the Orioles, who havent been to the
playoffs since 1997, pull within two games of the Yankees with 3 1-3 effective
innings. Tillman will have an MRI in Baltimore on Monday but didnt think the
injury was serious. In fact, he thought he could still pitch when he was lifted
Sunday. He didnt think that would be fair to the club, though, with so much at
stake. “I was kind of coming down on myself hard there for coming out of the
game,” Tillman said. “But Randy picked me up huge—and what a series Mark had.
It was fun to watch.” Reynolds made the ballpark in the Bronx his personal
launching pad in this unlikely showdown between the top two teams in the
division. He homered twice in Fridays victory then got Baltimore on the
scoreboard Sunday when he hit a mammoth drive leading off the fifth inning.
Reynolds connected shortly after being sent to the dirt by Hughes high-and-tight
offering. Reynolds 16th homer with none out in the sixth finished Hughes (13-12)
and put Baltimore ahead 5-3. “I thought that was Hughes guy to get out,” Yankees
manager Joe Girardi said. “He didnt do it.” Playing under ominous grey skies,
the Yankees fell to 19-23 since opening a 10-game division lead on July 18. By
the time the stadium lights went on in the eighth, Baltimore was well on its way
to its 19th win in 27 games. Matt Wieters had an RBI single in helping Baltimore
win its third series of the year in New York for the first time since 1976.
“Hopefully its a sign were becoming a little better because theyve been the
measuring stick for a long time,” Showalter said. September call-up
Chris Dickerson gave New York a 2-0 lead in the second inning with a homer in
his first at-bat of the season. But Girardis plan in which he juggled his
rotation to give Hughes a start at Yankee Stadium—where he has excelled this
season—backfired. Now the Yankees embark on a 10-game road trip against
division rivals Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Boston with their first place standing
in jeopardy. “They pitch, they hit. The bottom line is they beat us and well see
them again in a few days,” Derek Jeter said of the Orioles. With
Curtis Granderson joining Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira on the bench because
of right hamstring tendinitis, the Yankees used what looked to be a
not-so-imposing lineup. But the fill-ins did just fine, building a 3-1 lead
after five innings. Dickerson hit a line drive into the second deck in right
field in his first at-bat of the season. The centre fielder also robbed
Adam Jones of what might have been a two-run homer in the seventh inning with a
leaping catch in front of New Yorks bullpen. Nick Swisher had an RBI single and
made two fine plays at first base in place of Teixeira. He slammed into the wall
to catch a foul pop while reaching into stands in the second inning and snared
Nick Markakis scorching liner to end the third. Despite being 6-0 in seven
starts since June 26 at home, Hughes, though, couldnt hold the lead. He walked
Nate McLouth to start the sixth and Jones followed with a single. Wieters had an
RBI single and Reynolds chased Hughes with a drive into the left-field
bleachers, silencing a crowd that had been cheering what had been a dominant
outing. Hughes has allowed 32 homers, tying him for the major league lead with
the Angels Ervin Santana and Baltimores Tommy Hunter. Hunter was demoted on Aug.
24. He is scheduled to be recalled Monday and will pitch out of the bullpen.
Wolf yielded an RBI single to Swisher in the fifth but got help from shortstop
J.J. Hardys sparkling diving stab to start a double play in the sixth inning—
one of three double plays for the Yankees. Released by the Milwaukee Brewers on
Aug. 22, Wolf gave up three hits and walked one. “Wolfie, coming in and bringing
some calmness—whatever you want to call—to the game was big,” Manager Buck
Showalter said. Derek Lowe walked Robert Andino with the bases loaded in the
eighth, then walked off the field to loud boos. The Yankees used eight pitchers.
Markakis added a two-run single in the eighth. “Were in the zone right now,”
Markakis said. NOTES: Reynolds has 17 multihomer games, three this season. ...
Rodriguez went 0 for 7 in two rehab games for Class-A Tampa. He was scheduled to
play Sunday but he was given the day off instead. Girardi said the third baseman
could be activated from the DL on Monday. ... Orioles RHP Jason Hammel (right
knee surgery) pitched five scoreless innings in a rehab start for Class-A
Frederick on Saturday. He is scheduled to fly with the team to Toronto.
Showalter said he will know what Hammels next step is after his bullpen session
this week. Reggie Wayne Jersey .J. Raji have been fined
US$5,000 each by the NFL for actions in last Sundays loss to Minnesota. Andrew Luck Jersey . Fish and Bryan will face
Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka, the reigning Olympic champions in doubles. U.S.
captain Jim Courier slated 19-year-old Ryan Harrison to partner Bryan when the
draw was made Thursday. http://www.coltsteamstore.com/coby-fleener-jersey
. His main motivation was simply to win another game for the Washington
Capitals. And that is precisely what he did. Dwight Freeney Jersey . Sanchez was involved
in a spectacular crash that occurred 56 kilometres (35-miles) into the eighth
stage that took the riders into the Swiss mountains. Sanchez, who won a Tour
stage last year on his way to winning the best climbers polka-dot jersey, fell
on his side before two other riders landed on him. Pat Angerer Jersey .  The concert was Tim
McGraw and Kenny Chesney, at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver
and it was just a few days after a mentally disturbed 24-year-old man allegedly
walked into a movie theater heavily armed in Aurora Colorado, killing 12 people
and injuring many more. A day before the theater shooting rampage, a friend of
mine from Regina said that he had an extra ticket to the concert, if I could
make it, which is how I ended up in Denver on Saturday night. Jeremy Guthrie and
Jonathan Sanchez both struggled this season after changing leagues. On Friday,
the pitchers were traded for each other. Guthrie had double-digit victories in
three straight seasons with the Baltimore Orioles in the American League.
Sanchez threw a no-hitter for the San Francisco Giants and was a part of the
Giants 2010 World Series rotation. Guthrie opened this season with the Colorado
Rockies and Sanchez with the Kansas City Royals, but both struggled in their new
leagues. “Im excited,” Guthrie said. “The first thought is disappointment that I
couldnt hold up my end of the bargain in Colorado and help that team win games,
which I think they were built to do at the start of this year. “But as I looked
at what was in my future and I look at the Royals, I see a perfect fit there. Im
excited to play with the guys that are down there. Its a young core of great
baseball players and an organization that has been lauded recently for the moves
and the progress theyve made, and I really hope to come in there and be a large
part of good things that we can do here in the near future.” Sanchez was
designated for assignment Tuesday by the Royals. The 29-yearr-old left-hander is
1-6 with a 7. Andrew Luck Elite Jersey. 76 ERA in 12 starts
this season. A seven-year major league veteran, he is 39-52 with a 4.50 ERA, 420
walks and 772 strikeouts in 186 games (130 starts). Sanchez threw a no-hitter
against San Diego in 2009 and the Royals traded away Melky Cabrera to get him
last November in what turned out to be one of the worst trades in team history.
Sanchez was winless in his final 11 starts with Kansas City. Guthrie, a 2002
first-round pick of the Cleveland Indians, was the Orioles opening day starter
2008-10 and surpassed the 200-inning mark in each of the past three seasons. He
is scheduled to make his first Royals start Sunday against the Twins. The Royals
rotation has a 26-40 record with a 5.43 ERA and has worked the fewest innings,
467 2/3, of any major league rotation this season. “Im looking to hopefully
being a workhorse, someone that can go out there and be there for the team
whenever hes needed,” Guthrie said. “I have been blessed with a lot of health in
my career, which is really important: to be able to go out there and your team
can depend on you, to go out there and throw the innings and give them a chance
to win.” ’ ’ ’
