August 27, 2018 - 1:17 am

The Baltimore Orioles did not avoid the series sweep on Sunday night as they fell 5-3 to the New York Yankees. Baltimore is now on a eight-game losing streak as they prepare for a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays. 

Dylan Bundy took the mound for Baltimore, and he picked up his 13th loss of the series. Luis Severino received the start for the Yankees, and he was awarded his 17th win, which is the most in the major league. 

Bundy had another rough outing as he only went five innings and allowed four runs off of six hits, but he did record seven strikeouts. 

In the top of the second inning, Luke Voit hit a two-run homer to give New York a 2-0 lead. 

New York added to their lead in the third inning as Miguel Andujar picked up two RBIs via a double. 

Baltimore finally got on the board with a Jonathan Villar sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. 

With Cody Carroll now on the mound, he allowed a run via a wild pitch to give New York a commanding 5-1 lead, but Baltimore answered with a two-run sixth inning. Trey Mancini hit a solo homer, and Jace Peterson picked up a RBI off of a single. 

Craig Gentry flied out to end the game, and the Orioles are now 37-94. Game one of their series with Toronto is scheduled for Monday night at 7:07 pm ET. 

Quick hits:
Cedric Mullins was held out of Sunday's game with a hip injury, and his status for Monday night's game is up in the air. 

Orioles stole four bases on Sunday night.

This is the fifth time Baltimore has been swept in a four-game series.
