Yankees @ Orioles 4/10/12


Derek Jeter led off the game with a solo home run and was followed by a Nick Swisher double, although no other runs would score that inning. After that we saw the emergence of Cy Chen as he shut down the Yankees to the tune of 12 consecutive Yankees shut down before a Russell Martin single in the 5th inning. Speaking of the 5th inning, 5 wild pitches for Freddy Garcia later and he left with the Yankees behind 4-1 in the bottom of the 5th inning.

The Yankees put together a little rally in the top of the 6th as a sacrifice fly, scoring Cano, and an error on Mark Reynolds allowing a runner to score allowed the Yankees to creep within one run to 4-3. Gardner then tied the ball game up with a clutch 2 out rbi single to even up the score at 4-4. THANK YOU MARK REYNOLDS. Cy Chen , now over 100 pitches, looks more like the guy we all expected and less like Randy Johnson in his prime when he was finally taken out by Buck Schowalter after the Gardner single.

Sweaty Freddy Garcia will make his first start of the season tonight at Camden Yards and against the Baltimore Orioles. Here is tonight's lineup

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Curtis Granderson CF
Andruw Jones DH
Russell Martin C
Brett Gardner LF
