Under Buck Showalter, the Orioles have become a different team and it showed this afternoon as the O’s beat the Yankees 4-3. A.J. Burnett wasn’t horrible, but wasn’t good enough, as he allowed four runs over seven innings for the loss.

Here are some quick highlights:

  • The Yankees had a guy with a .331 OBP leading off and a guy with a .395 OBP batting ninth, Derek Jeter and Brett Gardner respectively.
  • Alex Rodriguez homered and drove in a pair of runs. That gives him 100 for the season, his 14th season with at least 100 RBI and 13th in a row.
  • A-Rod is 3-for-6 with a homer and three RBI since returning from the DL.
  • Colin Curtis was activated before the game. He pinch hit and struck out looking to end the game (the pitch was in the opposite batter’s box).
  • Brian Matusz held the Yankees to just three runs on five hits.
  • The Orioles’ bullpen held the Yankees hitless over three innings.
