Yankees Vs. Orioles Final Score: Ivan Nova Rocked As New York Loses, 11-5

Ivan Nova (10-5) gave up nine earned runs in just five innings as the New York Yankees lost 11-5 to the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of their three-game series at Yankee Stadium. Nova gave up 10 hits and a walk, while striking out five. The O's scored seven runs in the second inning, with four coming off a Chris Davis grand slam.

The Yankees appeared to be on their to winning in a route after taking a 5-0 lead in the first inning. Curtis Granderson, Ichiro Suzuki and Russell Martin all hit RBIs, and Robinson Cano added a two-run home run to pad the impressive inning. Orioles starter Chris Tillman (4-1) would settle down from there, however. He did not give up another run in his next four innings on the mound.

The Orioles, meanwhile, picked Nova apart even after their monster second inning. Wilson Betemit batted in runs in the third and fifth innings, and Nick Markakis hit a two-run homer off Clay Rapada in the eighth to give Baltimore an 11-5 lead. Betemit and Markakis finished 3-for-4 and 3-for-5 at the plate, respectively.

The Yankees went just 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position on the night. Derek Jeter went 3-for-5 in the leadoff spot, but Granderson struck out three times in his 1-for-4 night at the plate.

Game 3 of the series is set 1:05 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Phil Hughes (10-8, 4.08 ERA) will look to avoid the sweep against the O's Zach Britton (1-0, 5.74) on the mound.
