Coming off his second Tommy John surgery, Jameson Taillon makes his Yankee debut, facing the O's under the lights in the Bronx. It's his first MLB outing since May of 2019. Taillon will be on a pitch count, but he was able to rest through the first turn through the rotation, so he'll be ready to give the Yankees a good chunk of innings.

Aaron Judge isn't in the lineup as he's dealing with left side soreness. Here's the latest on Judge's injury: Yankees' Aaron Judge Kept Out of Lineup With Sore Left Side

First inning

First frame for Jameson Taillon since May of 2019? No problem. He retires the side, even striking out the first batter he faces. 

A base hit from Giancarlo Stanton moved Gleyber Torres (who walked) to third, but Clint Frazier flew out to end the inning.

Second inning

Six up, six down for Jameson Taillon.

Aaron Hicks put the Yankees in front 1-0 with an RBI single, his first base hit that's left the infield this season. 

Fourth inning

Jameson Taillon ran into some trouble in the fourth. The right-hander allowed a pair of solo home runs to Cedric Mullins and Anthony Santander as the lineup flipped over for the first time, both on pitches left over the heart of the plate. 

Fifth inning

Taillon's night comes to an end after 4.2 innings. Other than the two home runs he allowed, the right-hander was brilliant in his pinstriped debut. Yankees still trail 2-1, though. 

Eighth inning

After Nick Nelson, Darren O'Day and Jonathan Loaisiga have kept New York in the game, it's an RBI double from Gio Urshela that ties the game in the eighth. Mike Tauchman, pinch-running for Gary Sánchez, scored all the way from first base on the play.

Ninth inning

We're headed to extra innings. Aroldis Chapman pitched a spotless ninth with three strikeouts before César Valdez shut the Yankees down in the bottom half of the frame. It's still 2-2. 

Tenth inning

Baltimore takes a 3-2 lead as the automatic runner at second base comes in to score on an error by Gleyber Torres at shortstop.

Kyle Higashioka ties the game in the bottom half with a two-out base hit, scoring Tyler Wade from second. We head to the 11th! 

Eleventh inning

Baltimore scores one more run in the top of the inning, chasing Chad Green from the game. Then, Luis Cessa comes in and strikes out back-to-back hitters with the bases loaded to keep it a one-run deficit. 

FINAL: Yankees 3, Orioles 4

Gio Urshela gets tagged out at home plate for the final out of the game as New York falls in 11 innings.

New York was 3-for-14 with runners in scoring position tonight, leaving 12 runners on base and striking out 10 times. 

The Yankees are off on Thursday before traveling to Tampa to take on the Rays for their first road series of the season.
