BALTIMORE—CC Sabathia enjoyed an early cushion and remained in breezy command of the Orioles’ lineup on Wednesday, helping the Yankees post an 8-3 victory at Camden Yards.
Walking to the mound with a lead already in his back pocket, the left-hander improved to 10-1 against the Orioles—his most wins against any American League East opponent.
Even with today’s win, I’m still annoyed about yesterday’s loss. But it was nice to see Curtis Granderson get a couple of hits, and Robinson Cano raise his SLG to over .700 on the season. Cano’s now hitting an impressive .390/.430/.701, and I think he’s probably the Yankee MVP to this point in the year, although I’ll run the numbers tomorrow to confirm it.
