New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles
Final Score: Yankees 6 Orioles 4
The New York Yankees were able to pull out a victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday in what was a back and forth game that took extra innings to decide a winner. The extra innings win moves the Yankees to (28-16) on the season with a nice 1.5 game lead over the Boston Red Sox in the AL East.
Once again Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia looked far from his normal ace form, and with his velocity down, Sabathia may no longer be the pitcher were use to seeing. Sabathia went 6.1 innings allowing four runs on 11 hits, and only had two strikeouts. It is Sabathia's second straight start that he has allowed double-digit hits, which is the first time that he has done that in his career, and he blew Yankees leads twice in the game, something that aces are not suppose to do.
