Gary Sanchez (calf) not in Yankees' lineup on Saturday

Miguel Andujar gets his first start at third base this season

With AP Photos.Sonny Gray pitched six effective innings, rookie Miguel Andujar hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees downed the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 to snap a two-game skid.

Braves 8, Rockies 3: Brandon McCarthy used his arm and bat to help Atlanta win at Coors Field in Colorado's home opener.

According to the YES Network, it was the latest grand slam ever hit against the Yankees.

Sabathia threw 58 pitches in four innings against the Orioles then was removed. Eric Thames and Travis Shaw ha two-run homers for the Brewers.

Gardner safely reached base four times despite playing on fumes, including a two-run single in the second that gave the Yankees an early lead.

Cashner allowed five runs (four earned) over five innings in his Orioles debut last weekend against the Twins and will look to impress during his first career start in the Bronx.

CC Sabathia went four innings, giving up three runs on four hits while striking out three, not factoring in the decision.

Jones hit a double in the first inning that would have driven in a run.

Baltimore had pulled ahead in the fourth on a solo homer by Chris Davis off Sabathia, who earlier had fallen behind 1-0 and 2-1 when serving up homers in the first and third innings to Machado, who was 4-for-5 with three runs scored. His one hit came in the seventh inning.

Champions League: That goal, I didn't expect to score that goal - Ronaldo
It came at a time when Juventus were dominating the ball in the second half and had put the Real defence under a lot of pressure. Even coach Zinedine Zidane who is a master of scoring jaw-dropping goals, could not believe his eyes.

Sally Pearson expected to pull out of Commonwealth Games
This has been ongoing for a couple of years and it is unfortunate the timing is now. Then I went into some hurdle drills and run-throughs, just could not do it.

Tillman began his 10th season with Baltimore by allowing four runs and seven hits in four innings of a 6-1 loss at Houston on Monday, though he felt better than at anytime last season. He also had four walks and one strikeout in his 73-pitch stint.

The game was tied 1-all in the fifth when Austin Hedges doubled off Lance McCullers Jr. The Yanks lost 5-to-3. Colby Rasmus singles to right field. Trey Mancini singles to right field, advances to 2nd. The Yankees loaded the bases in the eighth before Walker grounded back to O'Day. Joey Votto and Jose Peraza also had two hits for the Reds.

Before the outburst, Baltimore had scored just 14 runs all season, and never more than two in an inning. They lead the majors in runs.

Baltimore is 17-7 in Tillman's last 24 division starts and 7-24 in their last 31 games overall while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games against a right-handed starter. It was 27 degrees at first pitch.

He is attempting to get a 20th win against a third opponent along with the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals.

Both teams really went through their bullpen in this game.

With Manny Machado viewed as a prime trade candidate this season, all eyes will be once again on the Yankees as they try to move heaven and earth in their quest of bringing yet another superstar slugger into the fold. Mid-Atlantic Sports Network will televise the matchup and the game is scheduled to get underway at 1:05 p.m. ET. Chris Tillman was very bad last year and he did not pitch well in his first start this year as he allowed four ERs on seven hits and four walks in just four innings against a good Toronto offense.
