Bats Again Lift Orioles Past Yankees
For the second straight game, the Orioles run off a Yankees pitcher as Baltimore hangs seven runs on New York's Chien-Ming Wang in 3 2/3 innings for a 7-5 victory.
I won't crank out a game story, because you can read the AP version here but follow the jump for your Cliff's Notes version of the game.
Koji Uehara Wins Debut
Uehara picked up the win in his much-anticipated debut, giving up just one run in five innings of work. Uehara gave up five hits and a walk in his 86-pitch outing. The one walk was to Derek Jeter - the first batter Uehara faced in his first American appearance. Uehara spent most of the night minimizing damage, allowing a base runner in each of his five innings but managed to get himself out of jams.
O's Top Three Continue to Produce
Brian Roberts, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis combined to hit 5 for 10 Wednesday night and scored four of the team's seven runs. Markakis really broke out, going 3 for 3 with three RBI, two runs and his first home run of the season - a two-run shot that chased Wang in the fourth inning.
Teixeira Still Booed, Still Struggling
Despite a much smaller crowd (22,856) compared to Opening Day, Severna Park native and Yankees off-season acquisition Mark Teixeira was still soundly booed at Camden Yards. In the first two games of the season, Teixeira has gone 1 for 9 with a walk and a hit.
Baltimore Bullpen Scuffles Again
Teixeira's lone hit came in the ninth inning as the Yankees put together a rally, touching up reliever Dennis Sarfate for three runs in 2/3 of an inning. Sarfate's struggles brought in closer George Sherrill who actually gave up Teixeira's run-scoring double (Sherrill inherited Sarfate's runner) before getting Hideki Matsui to pop out and end the game.
