For the second night in a row it took extra innings for the Yankees (3-3) and Orioles (3-3) to decide the game, and for the second night in a row the Yankees came out on top, beating Baltimore 6-4 and completing the series sweep. Nick Swisher was the hero in extras, blasting a two-run home run in the tenth, his second of the season. C.C. Sabathia did not look sharp in his second start of the year. He went six innings, gave up four runs on eight hits but did strikeout eight batters. Orioles starter Jake Arrieta went 6 2/3 innings, gave up four runs on only five hits.
Curtis Granderson had a solid game, he went 2-5 with a double and three RBI. Mark Teixeira finally got things going with two base hits. His first multi-hit game of the year. The Yankees however are getting limited production out of the middle of their order. Cano, A-Rod and Teixeira have combined for a whopping 1 RBI this season. Teixeira has that lone RBI.
The Yankee bullpen was solid despite many arms not being available due to an abundance of recent work. In four innings Logan, Soriano and Rivera gave up no runs, and only two hits. Soriano got the win for the Yankees, his first. Mariano Rivera pitched the tenth and picked up his second save of the season.
The Yankees have an off day on Thursday before the home-opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday afternoon. Hiroki Kuroda (0-1) is scheduled to start for the Yankees while Ervin Santana (0-1) will pitch for the Angels. Pregame starts at 12:30, first pitch at 1:05 right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
