Sabathia gets Yankees back on track

The Yankees (13-7) had lost four of their last five and were in need of a win. CC Sabathia provided the 8-3 win against a team he has dominated in his career, the Orioles (4-17).

Quick ‘Cap:
Fifteen hits fueled all the offense Sabathia would need and more. The bottom four in the lineup combined for 9-for-18. Robinson Cano slammed a solo shot in the third to give the Yanks their biggest lead of the game, 6-0.

Sabathia gave up 11 hits over 7 2-3 and struck out five. Coming off two complete games in a row, that actually looks bad for him. Only starter with more than one at-bat that went hitless was Alex Rodriguez.

Jorge Posada left in the second after getting hit by a pitch. Here’s the latest update on his knee from the Star-Ledger. His replacement, Francisco Cervelli, went 2-for-4 with an RBI. Yankees-Orioles box score.

It’s about time the Yankees won. I think their trip to the White House and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center tired them out on Monday after traveling across the country.

Am I worried about Posada? A little. He’s been killing the ball. But so has Cervelli, and I’d love to see Jesus Montero.

Line of the Night:
Nick Swisher: 3-for-5, 3B, 2 R, 2 RBI. His second triple of the year and his second three-hit day in a row. He’s up to .284 now.

Up Next:
The Yankees can take the series with a win out of A.J. Burnett tomorrow night.
