Things were getting beyond dicey for Brad Brach and Devon Kennard Authentic Jersey the Baltimore Orioles.

Bases loaded, no outs. Clinging to a one-run lead in the 12th. Big boppers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton coming up.
But boosted by an alert play from catcher Caleb Joseph, Brach escaped his own jam. And after overcoming an early deficit that left their starting pitcher punching the dugout wall, the Orioles held off the New York Yankees 8-7 Sunday.
Stanton went 0 for 7, stranded nine runners and fanned five times for the second time in a week — the only two times the NL MVP has done that in his professional career.
Stanton is hitting .167 and has 20 strikeouts in 42 at-bats in his first year with the Yankees, and getting booed by the home fans.
They’re not going to cheer for that, so what do you expect? Stanton said.
Just got to look at it as a bad week. Season is much longer than a week, so a couple good games can turn it around and help us win, he said.
Anthony Santander’s first major league homer, a two-run drive, and a two-run shot by Danny Valencia let the Orioles rally from down 5-0.
Pinch-hitter Pedro Alvarez, whose 14th-inning grand slam won Friday night’s game, drew a one-out walk in the 12th from Adam Warren (0-1). Santander singled with two outs and Gentry capped an 11-pitch at-bat with a go-ahead single.
He drove the first pitch he saw from Jon Gray (1-2) above the Rockies bullpen in right-center. Carlos Asuaje followed Richard with a home run, the second time this season the Padres have gone deep in successive at-bats.
Clayton really got us going (offensively), Padres manager Andy Green said. That’s not actually what you expect to happen. That ball was absolutely crushed.
Richard, who last homered Aug. 27 at Miami, said his towering home run was pretty much a stroke of good fortune.
I got lucky. Let’s be real, he said.
Richard (1-1) allowed four runs in five innings. Brad Hand struck out the side in the ninth for his third save.

Ian Desmond, Chris Iannetta and Gonzalez homered for the Rockies. Gonzalez’s two-run drive came in the sixth off Jordan Lyles, pulled the Rockies within 7-6 and led to the ejection of Padres manager Andy Green.
