Frazier, Henderson power 8-run 7th, Orioles win 9-6, stop Yanks’ 5-game win streak

May 25, 2023  -NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Frazier pulled Nestor Cortes’ fastball down the right-field line and worried.

“You see the wind pushing it foul,” he explained. “It wasn’t a very good feeling until it hit.”

His drive clanked off the foul pole in front of the second deck, turning a Yankees runaway into what became an Orioles thriller. Frazier’s three-run homer pulled Baltimore within a run and pinch-hitter Gunnar Henderson followed with a go-ahead, two-run double in an eight-run seventh inning. Baltimore’s 9-6 victory Wednesday night stopped New York’s season-high winning streak at five games.

“Ton of fight. Ton of energy in our dugout,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said.

Baltimore (32-17) has come from behind in 19 of its wins. The Orioles sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh against Cortes and the bullpen, their highest-scoring inning since September 2021. The franchise matched its most runs in an inning at the Yankees, on June 5, 1989, and by the St. Louis Browns on June 12, 1929, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
