Orioles hand Yankees' Tanaka 1st loss of season

And Brett Gardner, at 34 the oldest position player on the team, reached base in all five of his at-bats, driving in the Yankees' first two runs with a second-inning single. He might have been able to continue on in the game if his hip didn't start to bother him.

With the Yankees trailing in the bottom of the seventh Didi Gregorious smacked a double to right field. It was the second homer of the season for both. "Throw a pitch that you're not ready to compete on because you're still trying to get loose and it gets hit over the fence and we lose because of it - not because of it, but it was a contributing factor".

Manny Pina drew a walk and advanced to third on a Herman Perez infield single and a throwing error by Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant.

Austin chimed in with a two-run single.

The Yanks started the season off undermanned because of injuries to first baseman Gary Bird and outfielders Clint Frazier, Aaron Hicks and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Sabathia started Friday's loss to the Orioles. Assuming Peterson takes on a bench role, Miguel Andujar could get an opportunity to play third base on an everyday basis for at least the next ten days.

"We needed it. Any time you lose a game like we did (Friday) night, it's important, especially with the quick turnaround we had, to come in the next day and win the next game", Gray said.

"It was a little nerve wracking but having the MRI come back clean is a good thing", Sabathia said.

What's at stake in China-US trade dispute
Wednesday's Chinese tariff hike targeted goods including soybeans, the biggest US export to China , and aircraft. Exports to China directly or indirectly supported 1.8 million new U.S.jobs in 2015, according to the U.S.

- Baltimore loaded the bases against Chasen Shreve in the 12th, but the left-hander also struck out Rasmus to end that jam. NY trailed 3-2 after four and a half innings but tied the game in the fifth before scoring twice in the sixth followed by three in the seventh.

Angels 13, Athletics 9: Rookie sensation Shohei Ohtani hit a home run for the third straight game, and Los Angeles rallied from an early six-run deficit to beat Oakland. But just hours after being activated, the two-time All-Star delivered in the first inning against Danny Duffy (0-2), who allowed three runs and three hits in 52/3 innings.

In Washington, Michael Conforto came off the disabled list to hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer off Stephen Strasburg, Yoenis Cespedes also went deep against the ace, and Jay Bruce tacked on an insurance grand slam for the Mets. He made two starts against the Yankees in 2017 and put together a 0-2 record against them with a 19.29 ERA and three strikeouts. Tanaka was handed a one run lead heading into the top of the seventh. The Orioles are minus Mark Trumbo in the mix as he has a quad strain while Colby Rasmus has a hip flexor.

In Milwaukee, Jon Lester pitched six sharp innings and hit a tricky grounder that was tough to corral and Chicago blanked the hosts.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman walked two in the ninth and was visited by pitching coach Larry Rothschild and a trainer separately.

Boone did not have to dip into his tired bullpen until the seventh inning, having gotten six serviceable innings out of starter Sonny Gray, who allowed three runs and four hits. After two more singles, Bleier relieved Tillman and ended the sixth with a double play.

Beltre surpassed Rod Carew (3,053).
