With the the number 9 hitter Gio Urshela starting off the inning, and then the two left-handers at the top of the lineup, Hyde brings in Left -handed reliever Richard Bleier to pitch the 7th. Bleier does his job and gets three straight groundball outs. Though Hays led the inning off with a single, the Orioles went quietly afterwards.

Cobb has kept the Yankees off the board, but the Yankees had run his pitch count up to 74 pitches so manager Brandon Hyde started to warm up Miguel Castro in case Cobb gets in trouble with the heart of the order coming up. Sure enough, the Yankees were able to put runners on 1st and 3rd with a walk and a two-out single by Torres.
At 95 pitches, and one out away from being able to pick up the win, Hyde had a tough choice to make with Stanton coming to the plate. With Castro ready and watching, Hyde decides to let his veteran face Stanton. Stanton runs the count to 2-2 when on his 100th pitch, Cobb gets Stanton to swing and miss on knucklecurve to end the threat.
In the bottom of the inning, Tanaka got two quick outs before Nunez took a 1-0 fastball and deposited just to the left of the scoreboard in RF for his second home run of the year, pushing the Orioles lead to 5-0. That ended Tanaka's outing as the Yankees brought in reliever Dan Otero. Sisco met him with a single but Davis flew out to end the inning.

Ruiz stays hot
The Yankees put together a two-out rally to put runners on 2nd and 3rd after an Andujar double, but Cobb got LaMahieu to line out sharply to Hays in center field. The Orioles were back on to their scoring ways when Rio Ruiz smacked a two-out double down the right field line that Mason Williams was able to score on from 1st to make it 4-0.
