W – David Robertson (4-4)     L – Koji Uehara (1-2)     SV – Mariano Rivera (31)

– Kevin Millwood held the Yankees to one run over 7 innings with 6 strikeouts. He left the game in line for the win.
– Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless 8th but Koji Uehara gave up a three run homer to Alex Rodriguez with two outs to put New York ahead. It looked like he had strike three the pitch before but the call didn’t go his way.
– Adam Jones and Robert Andino each hit solo homeruns. The O’s other run came on a Nick Markakis sacrifice fly.
– Cesar Izturis had a pair of singles and was hit by a pitch. Felix Pie and Ty Wiggington also had singles.

Game 2: Orioles 3, Yankees 11

W – CC Sabathia (20-6)     L – Jeremy Guthrie (10-14)

– Jeremy Guthrie just wasn’t effective from the very beginning. He hit Derek Jeter with the first pitch of the game and ended up giving up 6 runs over 5 innings on 7 hits and 2 walks with 5 strikeouts.
– The bullpen wasn’t any better. Other than David Hernandez’ scoreless inning – Mark Hendrickson gave up a run over the 6th, Alfredo Simon gave up a run over the 8th, and Rick VandenHurk gave up a three run homer in the 9th inning.

W – Mike Gonzalez (1-3)     L – David Robertson (4-5)

– Chris Tillman struggled mightily with his control. He walked 6 batters over 3.2 innings to go along with 3 hits and a strikeout to give up 3 runs.
– The bullpen did a great job of shutting down the Yankees from there, combining for 6.1 scoreless innings. Matt Albers for 2.1, Mark Hendrickson for 1.2, Jim Johnson for 1.1, Koji Uehara striking out the side in the 9th, and Mike Gonzalez pitched a scoreless 10th despite 3 walks (Two of which were intentional).
