1057topper Yoon Shines In Debut As Orioles Beat Yankees 2 1

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon threw one shutout inning in his debut with the Baltimore Orioles, who got a home run from Chris Davis in a 2-1 victory over a New York Yankees’ split-squad Saturday.

The 27-year-old Yoon didn’t exactly face a Murderer’s Row of Yankees, who sent most of their stars to Panama for an exhibition game.

Yoon gave up a single to Ramon Flores, then retired Mason Williams and Kyle Roller on fly balls. He ended his 11-pitch stint by getting Carmen Angelini to bounce out to second.

Yoon said, “I knew I’d be nervous, but I pitched nine years in Korea so overall I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I’d be.”

Yoon signed a three-year contract with the Orioles in February, but his debut was delayed by difficulties in obtaining a work visa. He hopes to ultimately be a part of Baltimore’s starting rotation.
