BALTIMORE — No one said it was going to come easy for this Yankees team, but no one imagined a loss this hard. The Bombers were just one strike away from escaping Camden Yards with a sweep when it absolutely fell apart. Clay Holmes coughed up the one-run lead on two wild pitches in the ninth and then Wandy Peralta gave up an RBI-single to Austin Hays in extras as the Orioles rallied for a 3-2 …

BALTIMORE — Corey Kluber can bring more than just some strong innings pitched for the Yankees down the stretch. The two-time Cy Young winner played on some contending and playoff teams with Cleveland. So he brings valuable experience of what it takes for a team to get through September to the playoffs. “First and foremost, it’s everybody pulling in the same direction,” Kluber said. “You get to …

BALTIMORE — DJ LeMahieu lamented last week that the Yankees are the streakiest team in baseball and he is right. He is also one of the reasons that the ups and downs of this season have seemed so drastic and dramatic. The past two seasons, LeMahieu has been one of the “stabilizers” in the lineup, a steady bat that kept the Yankees somewhat balanced through the streaks of their sluggers like …

BALTIMORE — Aaron Boone has nowhere else to go right now, so Chad Green is still going to get his chances. On Wednesday, the usually reliable right-handed reliever gave up a home run in the bottom of the eighth for his sixth blown save of the season. It’s a concern for a bullpen that is without Zack Britton (Tommy John) for the rest of the year and Jonathan Loaisiga (shoulder strain) right …

In the here and now, Aaron Boone’s decision to switch Gleyber Torres from shortstop to second base is about the current AL wild card race. Over the last week, the weight of a couple of mistakes he’s made out there (defensively) have been a little impactful,’’ said Boone, adding that the switch could “free him up and put us in a position to go out and play our best baseball.

The exercise, however, allows us to notice that while he was virtually the same hitter by this figure in 2018 and 2021, the way in which that wRC+ was achieved wasn’t exactly the same. Let’s compare Judge’s 2018 and 2021 seasons: Aaron Judge: 2018 vs. 2021 After perusing these stats, it’s reasonable to conclude that Judge is not necessarily better in one year or another; he is simply a different hitter.

It’s amazing and troubling that Torres had the gall to jog to first one inning after he booted a groundball that should have been turned into a double play and two days after he was switched from shortstop to second base due to two seasons of poor fielding. With Austin Wynns on first base, nobody out and the Yanks leading 2-1, Cedric Mullins scorched a low liner to second that short-hopped Torres at the last second.
