BALTIMORE—CC Sabathia earned yet another win while facing the Orioles and the Yankees took advantage of some sloppy defense to help post a 4-2 victory on Wednesday at Camden Yards.
Each of Sabathia’s past four victories this year have come against the O’s, and he has won his past seven starts against Baltimore—though this one did not come as easily as some of the rest.
The Yankees got to O’s starter Chris Tillman for three runs and seven hits in six innings, though only Curtis Granderson’s fourth-inning sacrifice fly was an earned run. Julio Lugo booted a Mark Teixeira grounder to open the sixth inning, and Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano followed with singles that tied the game at 2. Cano finished with three hits.
I think it was Ron Gardenhire who once described the Yankees’ lineup as Murderer’s Row, plus Cano. A more apt description now might be Robinson Cano and the Seven Eight Dwarves.
