Yankees starter Bartolo Colon was cruising. He hadn’t allowed a run in eight innings and his pitch count stood at a measly 87.
He still didn’t come out for the ninth.
Not with Mariano Rivera in the bullpen.
Orioles 1, Yankees 1.
Didn’t Rivera blow a save here on April 24?
That’s eight career blown saves for Rivera against the Orioles.
The Orioles managed only three hits off Colon. They almost matched that total in one inning against Rivera.
Kevin Gregg tossed a scoreless ninth, retiring the side in order, and Koji Uehara is taking the baton.
Manny Machado update: Machado will travel to Sarasota tomorrow night and begin baseball activities and rehab on his left knee on Friday. Machado hasn’t played since dislocating his kneecap on May 5.
