Jake Arrieta: Orioles Pitcher Impressive as Baltimore Tops NY Yankees, Ivan Nova
Baltimore Orioles fans wondered when hurler Jake Arrieta would get his right cannon humming full-throttle.
Wednesday night, Charm City got its answer.
Arrieta tossed eight scoreless innings as the Baltimore Orioles beat Ivan Nova and the New York Yankees 5-0.
Arrieta (2-2) used outstanding movement, good pace and pinpoint control to strike out nine Yankee hitters, which tied his career high. More impressive, Arrieta issued zero walks while scattering five singles.
With the win, the Orioles snapped Nova’s mark of 15 consecutive victories. Nova would have tied Roger Clemens for the most consecutive victories in big league history with a win. Nova had not lost since June 10, 2011.
Matt Wieters kicked off scoring for the Orioles with a solo home run in the fourth inning, his seventh of the year.
Robert Andino drove in Chris Davis in the top of the sixth to give the Orioles a 2-0 lead.
Nick Markakis added a solo shot in the seventh inning. The next pitch, Nova beaned Adam Jones in the elbow.
The Orioles responded with a bullet double off the center field wall by Wieters, which brought Adams home from first.
Nick Johnson, fresh from an Orioles' record 0-for-29 slump, brought Wieters home with a single to center shortly thereafter.
Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless inning in the ninth to secure the victory for the Orioles.
With the win, the Orioles took the series from the Yankees to go to 16-9 on the young season. The Orioles have not been seven games over .500 since July 9, 2005.
