Yankees Light Up The O’s, Take Game One

After losing an extremely important series in Toronto, the Yankees needed a statement victory tonight against the O’s. Thanks to some lively hitting, they were able to do just that.

C.C. Sabathia continued his struggles, lasting just 5.2 innings while giving up five earned runs, but the Yankee line-up was able to bail him out by tagging the Orioles’ pitching for eight runs in their 8-5 victory in the Bronx.

Miguel Gonzalez was knocked around by the Yanks, failing to get out of the fifth inning while being tagged for seven earned runs. The Bombers put up five runs in the bottom of the fifth, highlighted by a Mark Reynolds RBI double and a two run homer by Ichiro, to flip a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 lead. The seven runs proved to be more than enough for the bullpen, which didn’t allow an earned run through 3.1 innings of work.  David Robertson worked an inning and a third of scoreless relief to continue his stellar season, and Mariano Rivera once again secured the save.
