Swish and Hits

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

NYY 8 15 0
BAL 3 11 1

WP: Sabathia (3-1)
LP: Guthrie (0-3)

Player of the Game: Nick Swisher. Swisher had 3 hits and drove in 3 runs, including a 2-run triple in the second and scored 2 runs as well.

Play of the Game: Robinson Cano's home run. I was skeptical of him entering the season as the 5 hitter. But man, it seems like every at bat he's hitting the ball hard. That was his sixth home run of the season.

Turning Point of the Game: Swisher's triple in the second inning. It made it 4-0 and a 4-run lead with CC Sabathia on the mound that early is enough to put any team out of the game. It was Swisher's second triple of the season. He had two all of last year.


  • Jorge Posada left the game in the second inning after getting hit by a pitch in the back of the knee. Cervelli replaced him but Posada said he just needs to ice it and will be fine.
  • CC Sabathia is 10-1 with a 2.62 ERA in 15 career starts against the Orioles.
  • Curtis Granderson broke out of an 0-for-17 slump with a single in the second. Mark Teixeira went 1-for-5 and is hitting .133 on the season...yikes!
  • Jeter's double tied him on the all-time Yankees list with Don Mattingly for third with 442.
