NEW YORK — The New York Yankees have gotten a taste of the commuter’s life.

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 after a 3-2 loss in Game 2 of the division series.

The Yankees arrived at the train station at about 1 a.m. 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 Tuesday that after the train arrived in Aberdeen, Md., and the team switched to buses. The ballclub arrived in New York at about 6 a.m.

The Orioles’ travel plans were also affected.

Game 3 of the series that is 1-1 is Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.
