Gary Sanchez’s grand slam home run in the second inning, and two-run homer in the sixth, could not save the New York Yankees on Sunday, as they lost 8-7 to the Baltimore Orioles.

The Yankees at one time led 4-1 and 7-4, but everything was in vain when Cedric Mullins responded with a two-run homer. In addition, Gleyber Torres made a huge mistake.

“I just tried to grab the ball really well and don’t throw bad to first base,” Torres said. “It’s my mistake in that situation. … I feel like it’s everything on me in that inning.”

Yankees manager Aaron Boone expressed his disappointment with this result.

“Incredibly frustrating that we didn’t put our best foot forward the last couple days,” Boone said. “The good thing is we hold the pen. We get to write the story still. We’ve responded from tough days, tough moments, tough stretches and we have to do it again.”

For Mullins, he became only the second Orioles player to hit 25 home runs, 25 steals, and 25 doubles in a season, behind only Reggie Jackson who did it back in 1976.

“It’s crazy, just to be told that it’s been a solid minute since someone has come around and put together a 25-25 season,” Mullins said. “I’m just out there putting my all every single day, and to have the results show is a pretty amazing feeling.”

The Orioles return home on Monday for a four-game series against Kansas City, while the Yankees host the Toronto Blue Jays.
