The Yanks just signed Ernesto Frieri the other day and Baltimore gave him a rough welcome, hitting a HR off of him in the top of the 9th as the Yanks lost 5-4.
The Yanks struck first, as Jacoby Ellsbury singled in a run in the third and Gary Sanchez later doubled in two more that same inning.
After three scoreless innings, CC Sabathia lost it a bit in the fourth, giving up three runs, all with two out.
Baltimore got a run in the 7th when Tommy Layne gave up a HR, but the Yanks tied it in the 8th on a HR by Billy McKinney.
Then Frieri gave up the HR in the 9th to cost the Yanks the game. The Yanks fall to 17-6 for spring training (I count the win over the Canadian WBC team, MLB doesn’t).
