From Elias: Hector Noesi got the win in his MLB debut vs the Orioles, pitching 4 scoreless innings in relief. The last pitcher to win his MLB debut, pitching at least 4 scoreless innings in relief was Jim Brower of the Indians on September 5, 1999 vs the Orioles (4 1/3 IP). Hector Noesi is the first Yankee pitcher to achieve this feat.

From Elias: Mariano Rivera has gotten a blown save in each of his last two appearances against Baltimore (tonight and April 24). He has not blown saves in consecutive appearances against any team since doing so against Boston in April 2005.
This is Mariano Rivera's 3rd blown save this season. The only other season that he had blown 3 saves within the team's first 41 games (tonight is the Yankees 41st game) was 1997, his first season as the closer.
From Elias: Robinson Cano has now hit safely in his last 16 games at Camden Yards. That is now the longest active hit streak at the ballpark. Second place is Ichiro, who has hit safely in 15 straight games there.
