Yankees vs. Orioles: ALDS Game 2 Video Highlights

Ian HanfordFeatured ColumnistOctober 9, 2012

The Baltimore Orioles were able to overcome a 1-0 first-inning deficit to defeat the New York Yankees 3-2 Monday night, evening the ALDS at 1-1 in the process.

Wei-Yin Chen threw a gem in his postseason debut, despite giving up a one-run double to Robinson Cano in the first frame. He wound up allowing just one run in 6.1 innings.

After that, Darren O'Day, Brian Matusz and Jim Johnson were able to pick up the slack, while Baltimore's offense found its rhythm.

The Orioles booted two balls, but Chris Davis' two-run single in the third inning made those errors a moot point. Mark Reynolds was able to tack on another run in the sixth, making the score 3-1 Baltimore.

Derek Jeter tried to get his club back into it with a run-scoring single in the seventh, scoring Eduardo Nunez, but Baltimore's bullpen didn't allow any more damage.

The all-important third game of the series will take place in New York at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, with Hiroki Kuroda (16-11, 3.32 ERA) squaring off against Miguel Gonzalez (9-4, 3.25 ERA).
