The Orioles had jumped out to a 2-0 lead against CC Sabathia in the bottom of the 3rd inning of last night’s contest, and though it seemed highly unlikely that that would end up being the final score, I was still a bit frustrated to see Sabathia losing to the O’s — especially with the Yanks facing junkballer extraordinaire Chris Tillman (who had of course been lit up by the Red Sox in his previous outing).
Thankfully the Yankees remembered that they were the Yankees and that they were playing the Orioles, and were able to put together a mini-rally in the 6th — aided by some incredibly sloppy play by the birds — to take a lead they wouldn’t relinquish, and they ended up winning 4-2.
CC Sabathia tossed seven innings of two-run ball, scattering nine hits and racking up eight strikeouts. Four of Sabathia’s six wins on the season have come against the Orioles.
The offense didn’t do much, although Robinson Cano picked up his second consecutive three-hit game, and both Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez had two hits apiece. Francisco Cervelli also hit a big two-out RBI single in the eighth to grab an insurance run.
