NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — What is it with the Yankees and transportation?

The Bronx Bombers got a taste of the commuter’s life following their Game 2 loss in the division series against the Orioles.

Power problems on the Yankees’ train line delayed their departure out of Baltimore. They were then forced to switch to buses during a late-night trip home following a 3-2 defeat.

The Yankees arrived at the train station at about 1 a.m. on Tuesday but were delayed about an hour. The train experienced further electrical disruptions about a half-hour into the trip.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said during a conference call on Tuesday that after the train arrived in Aberdeen, Md., the team switched to buses. The club arrived in New York at about 6 a.m.

The Orioles’ travel plans were also affected.

Game 3 of the series — currently tied at 1-1 — resumes on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

After the Yankees lost in devastating fashion to the Red Sox in early September, the team’s bus hit a gate outside Fenway Park and shattered one of its side windows.

Must have been a brutal night following a disappointing Game 2 defeat. Offer your thoughts and comments in the section below…
