NEW YORK (AP) — Brandon Hyde stood outside the Baltimore Orioles clubhouse Joe Morgan Jersey , his uniform and jacket reeking of Budweiser, syrup and a few other liquids. He had wondered what it would feel like to win his first game as a major league manager but had never given much thought to the scent.“I don’t know what this smell is, but whatever it is, I’ll take it,” he said with a grin as drips fell.Slow-footed catcher Jesus Sucre was aggressive on the bases to score the go-ahead run in a two-run sixth inning, then added three late RBIs Saturday.A day of milestones culminated in a 5-3 victory over the New York Yankees.Nate Karns started in his first appearance since May 2017, Jimmy Yacabonis won for the first time since September 2017 and Mike Wright struck out Miguel Andujar with two on for his first save in nine professional seasons. After losing 115 games last year, the Orioles at 1-1 reached .500 for the first time since the second game of last season.Hyde had managed a big league game just once previously, as Florida Marlins bench coach filling in during a 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay in June 2011 after Edwin Rodriguez quit. A Chicago Cubs coach for the past five seasons, the 45-year-old was hired in December and started with a 7-2 defeat to the Yankees in Thursday’s opener.Chris Davis was the ringleader as players picked up Hyde and dumped him into a laundry basket.“I got pushed in a cart and ended in the bathroom and then got showered with who knows what?” Hyde said. “I enjoyed every second of it.”Karns became the first opener in the major leagues this season, surviving a bases-loaded jam in the first to throw two shutout innings. His 2017 season was cut short by surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome; he returned to make four spring-training starts last year, then missed the season because of right elbow inflammation.He loaded the bases with one out in the first with consecutive walks to Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Luke Voit.“I was kind of like, what did I get myself into?” Karns said.Pitching coach Doug Brocail went to the mound and told Karns to throw home if Andujar hit a comebacker. When Karns fielded a one-hopper on the mound, he instinctively turned to second, then made the toss to Sucre at the plate to start a 1-2-3 double play .“I was doing a little bit of a 360 out there,” Karns said.Yacabonis (1-0), a 27-year-old righty who lives in Matawan, New Jersey, followed and allowed one run over three innings, on an RBI single by DJ LeMahieu in the fourth that nicked off the outstretched glove of shortstop Richie Martin. Yacabonis made his debut at Yankee Stadium in June 2017 and got his only previous wins that Sept. 1 and 3 at Toronto.Baltimore rallied in the sixth against James Paxton (0-1) when Sucre and Martin singled, and Sucre tagged and went to third on Jonathan Villar’s 236-foot fly to center. He just beat Brett Gardner’s throw.“It was kind of scary,” Sucre said Dave Concepcion Jersey , “but made it.”He tied the score on Dwight Smith’s single . Catcher Gary Sanchez’s wild throw on a double steal, the second of three New York errors, allowed the go-ahead run in.Sucre added an RBI single in the seventh off Chad Green and a two-run double in the ninth against Jonathan Holder for a 5-1 lead, tying his career high with three hits.Troy Tulowitzki led off the bottom half against Richard Bleier with his first home run since July 8, 2017. LeMahieu doubled to go 2 for 4 in his Yankees debut, Judge hit a one-out single.Wright struck out on a full-count slider and Voit popped a run-scoring single into the triangle between sprinting right fielder Joey Rickard, center fielder Cedric Mullins and Villar, with the ball nicking Rickard’s glove. Wright fanned out Andujar with a slider and pounded a fist into his glove.“You could tell I was a little pumped, a little jacked, obviously for the team but also for myself,” Wright said.New York has not opened with consecutive wins since 2011.Paxton, a 30-year-old left-hander acquired from Seattle on Nov. 18, dominated with one-hit ball through five innings. He allowed two runs — one earned — and four hits in 5 2/3 innings, mixing a fastball at up to 98 mph with cutters and knuckle-curves. He saluted fans when he walked to the dugout.“I was pretty excited, nervous, all that stuff, but I felt good about it and just let it energize me,” he said.On the other side of the stadium, Hyde thought ahead to the glow of October wins.“When you’re in the postseason,” he said, “this is how you want to be after every game.”BENCHEDDavis was out of the lineup after going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts in the opener.OPENERSYankees manager Aaron Boone said he may use an opener Monday against Detroit, then bring in RHP Domingo German.LIGHT YEAREnergy-efficient lighting has been installed in both clubhouses, with 24 fixtures on the ceiling of the Yankees room.

The Baseball Writers' Association of America announced the finalists for each major MLB award earlier this week, including the three players in the running for the AL and NL MVP awards.In the American League, Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts, Cleveland Indians infielder Jose Ramirez and Los Angeles Angeles center fielder Mike Trout finished in the top three in the balloting.On the National League side, it was Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, Chicago Cubs infielder Javier Baez and Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Christian Yelich as the leading vote-getters.With the field now trimmed to three, it's time for some updated look at each MLB race, complete with odds and predictions.AL MVPMookie BettsBillie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/Getty ImagesOddsMookie Betts, RF, Boston Red Sox: 1-4Mike Trout, CF, Los Angeles Angels: 17-3Jose Ramirez, 2B/3B, Cleveland Indians: 19-1Stat ComparisonBetts:186 OPS+, 84 XBH (32 HR), 80 RBI, 129 R, 30 SB, 10.9 WARRamirez:150 OPS+, 81 XBH (39 HR) Ken Griffey Jersey , 105 RBI, 110 R, 34 SB, 7.9 WARTrout:199 OPS+, 67 XBH (39 HR), 79 RBI, 101 R, 24 SB, 10.2 WAROutlookMLB MLBYour 2018 AL MVP finalists:mookiebettsmrlaparaMikeTrout xLG3flO3CkBetts was runner-up to Trout in the 2016 voting, and those two will dominate the balloting once again this year.However, it's Betts who is the clear front-runner this time around.The 26-year-old led the AL in batting average (.346), slugging percentage (.640) and runs scored (129) as one of the driving forces behind a juggernaut offense in Boston.With 30 steals and 32 home runs, he was one of just two 30/30 players around baseball this year.Betts was also his usual brilliant self defensively in right field, tallying 20 DRS with a 21.1 UZR/150 to win his third straight Gold Glove Award.Mike TroutMasterpress/Getty ImagesWhile Trout had another excellent season鈥攍eading the AL in walks (122), on-base percentage (.460), OPS (1.088) and OPS+ (199)鈥攈e did it while playing for sub-.500 Angels team that finished a distant fourth in the AL West.Fair or not, playing for a winning team still factors heavily into the voting.After finishing third in the voting a year ago, Ramirez actuallyimproved in a number of statistical categories, including OPS+ (145 to 150), home runs (29 to 39), RBI (83 to 105) and steals (17 to 34), to join Betts as a 30/30 player.However, a case can be made that he wasn't even the best player on his own team Tony Perez Jersey , as Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor (131 OPS+, 38 HR, 92 RBI, 25 SB, 7.9 WAR) is headed for a top-10 finish in the voting as well.In the end, the biggest surprise on the AL side was that Ramirez finished ahead of Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez, whohit .330/.402/.629 with 37 doubles, 43 home runs and an AL-leading 130 RBI.Prediction:Betts wins AL MVPNL MVPChristian YelichMorry Gash/Associated PressOddsChristian Yelich, LF, Milwaukee Brewers: 1-9Javier Baez, 2B/SS, Chicago Cubs: 23-2Nolan Arenado, 3B, Colorado Rockies: 49-1Stat ComparisonArenado:133 OPS+, 78 XBH (38 HR), 110 RBI, 104 R, 2 SB, 5.6 WARBaez:126 OPS+, 83 XBH (34 HR), 111 RBI, 101 R, 21 SB http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey ,6.3 WARYelich:164 OPS+, 77 XBH (36 HR), 110 RBI, 118 R, 22 SB, 7.6 WAROutlookMLB MLBYour 2018 NL MVP finalists:Nolan Arenadojavy23baezChristianYelich CulW8H0IyjYelich has garnered MVP votes just once in his career, finishing 19th in the balloting back in 2016.That speaks to the significant strides he made this season in his first year with the Brewers, as he helped lead Milwaukee to a surprise NL Central title.The 26-year-old won the NL batting title and finished two home runs and one RBI away from winning the Triple Crown.An otherworldly month of September where he hit .370/.508/.804 with 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 27 games helped the Brewers chase down the Cubs in the standings and solidified his standing as the MVP front-runner.At this point, the question is not whether he'll win the award. It's whether he'll win it unanimously.There have been just two unanimous NL winners in the past 15 years lbert Pujols in 2009 and Bryce Harper in 2015.Javier BaezJonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesBaez should scoop up the majority of the second-place votes after turning in a breakout season with the Cubs.The free-swinging infielder showed a slightly more refined approach at the plate, trimming his strikeout rate (28.3 to 25.9 percent) and improving his hard-contact rate (32.4 to 35.8 percent) in the process.His quick-twitch athleticism was still on full display on a daily basis, though, as he was a game-changer on the basepaths and defensively at second base and shortstop, along with his gaudy offensive numbers.Arenado edged out the likes of Freddie Freeman, Paul Goldschmidt and Matt Carpenter to finish third in the voting.As usual, he filled up the stat sheet while playing excellent defense at third base for a contending Rockies team.However, his dramatic home (1.105 OPS, 23 HR, 62 RBI) and road (.772 OPS, 15 HR, 48 RBI) splits water down his overall stat line.Prediction:Yelich wins NL MVP unanimouslyAll stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, unless otherwise noted.
