Orioles Break Losing Streak, Defeat Yankees 4-1

The Baltimore Orioles needed a win badly to keep pace with the top teams in the American League. Chris Tillman was ready for the challenge, and headed the call.

Tillman pitched 7 innings, allowed 1 run, 4 hits, struck out 7 and walked 2 en route to his 14th victory of the season – one that the Orioles needed to bring their four-game losing streak to a halt, as they defeated the New York Yankees, 4-1. J.J. Hardy opened up the scoring for the O’s with a 2-run single in the first, while Jonathan Schoop provided insurance with a 2-run double in the 7th inning.

Fans of the Orioles were pleasantly surprised to get runs in the first inning, with a couple sarcastic Twitter posts showing up on Social Delta. This is to be expected when a team goes through a slow patch, but for today, most of the O’s fans were pleased. Let’s take a look at some of the best posts throughout the game.

The Orioles are back at it Friday evening against the Cleveland Indians.
