Like I Said Earlier, Every Day

A Yankees victory over the Orioles is as sure a thing as the sun rising in the east every morning.


WP: Sabathia (6-3)
LP: Tillman 0-2
S: Rivera 14

Player of the Game: Who else but Robinson Cano? The guy got three more hits and an RBI and is now batting a league-leading .376! He's ridiculous.
Play of the Game: I'll give this one to Kevin Russo's diving catch in the eighth inning. It was a two-run game and making that play prevents any momentum to get an Orioles rally going.
Turning Point of the Game: I'm going to say it was when Sabathia got Luke Scott to strike out with the bases loaded in the seventh innning. That strikeout was huge as it was only a one-run game at the time and it killed the Orioles only legitimate rally.


  • Brett Gardner had x-rays on his left thumb before the game, but they came back negative and he ended up pinch-running and scoring a run late in the game.
  • Sabathia still did not have his best stuff. It was his fourth straight win this season against the Orioles.
  • No home runs by the Yankees tonight ended an 18 consecutive home run streak by the team.
