Just Another Win Against the Orioles

Thursday, June 3, 2010

The Yankees continued their dominance of the Orioles and homestand by completing another sweep of the O's.

BAL 3 3 1
NYY 6 12 1

WP: Sabathia 5-3
LP: Millwood 0-6
S: Rivera

Players of the Game: I couldn't decide between the two, so I'll give it to both CC Sabathia and Alex Rodriguez. Sabathia won his first game in a month by throwing seven innings allowing three runs and striking out seven batters. Meanwhile, A-Rod had a nice game too, going 2-for-4 with a two run home run.
Play/Turning Point of the Game: I didn't see much of the game so I'll give the play the same as the turning point, which was A-Rod's two-run homer in the third, which gave the Yankees a comfortable 5-0 lead.


  • Sabathia attempted to field a hard hit ball back to the mound with his bare hand, but he's fine.
  • Robinson Cano. Is there anything he can't hit? He just flicked the bat on a pitch off the outside corner and drilled it to centerfield. He now has a 17-game hitting streak. I made it my facebook status in April, and I will stick by it, Cano can win the AL MVP this year.
  • Always nice to see Brett Gardner hit a home run. Those are very rare.
  • Anyone interested in what was going to happen with the botched call in the "perfect" game last night, apparently they will not reverse the call to an out.
  • Michael Kay's Successors will be going on a road trip to Toronto to see our beloved Yankees play north of the border. We won't have any posts over the weekend but we will be sure to have pics and a post about our experience in Toronto and at the Skydome (it will always be the Skydome to me).

See Ya!
