Going into the game, the big story line was CC Sabathia, he needed to beat the O's to get this 20th win, should've been pretty easy seeing as though he's put up insane number in NYS and vs. the O's.
CC had bad first inning, something that he is known to do. B-rob got on, moved up to second on a wild pitch and Felix drew a walk. Markickass then singled to left to load the bases with no one out. Wiggy drop a ball into the outfield. Then Adam Jones hit one into left field and scored Pie and Markakis. So just like that it was 3-0, O's. The big inning ended as the bottom third of the lineup came up and all were retired. Arrieta had an ok first inning, allowing a few hits but then getting a double play. CC and Jake had strong innings, both only facing three batters.
The O's came back with fury in the third. Wiggy got a double on a poor play by Curtis Granderson, one of several during the game. After an AJ flyout, Nolan Reimold MASHED one into the second deck, 5-1. Arrieta continued to look dominant with a 1-2-3 inning. The 4th was uneventful, two 1-2-3 innings. CC seemed to regian his control and set the down the O's batters in order again. Lance Berkman got a single to start the bottom of the 5th, Adam Jones then took a horrible route on a Jorge Posada fly ball and it dropped for a double. Jake Arrieta got out of the jam, getting the next three Yankee batters out. CC continued to show why he was a Cy Young candidate with yet another quick inning. Arrieta allowed a hit to Jeter with Jeter getting a hit only he could get. Arrieta struck out Tex, and got a fly out and a ground out.
Josh Bell reached to start the 7th on a god-awful play Granderson in right field. B-Rob singled to have runners on the corners with no outs. Felix struck out, but Nick singled to knock in the Nugget, 6-2, O's. Kerry Wood came in and got both Wiggy and AJ to strike out on foul tips. Adam Jones allowed another double that a Gold Glover should catch. Posada then got the walk. Buck had seen enough of Jake, and Phat Albers came in. There was some confusion on a popup between Andino and Jones and the ball fell in, but they still got the force at 2nd, thanks to smart play to cover second by B-rob. A*Roid came in to pinch hit, and hit a liner at Andino, he knocked it down andthrew it to secondfor the force. Gardner ground to B-Rob and he threw to Wiggy for the force. Nothing happened in 8th except for a bunch of outs. The O's did nothing in 9th and Hendo came in to get some work at got a 1-2-3 inning to end it. The O's have won a series vs. the Yankees for the first time all year! Huzzah!
