A-Rod’s A-Bombs down O’s, 4-3

The Yankees couldn’t afford to lose the series opener against the Orioles. Baltimore closer Koji Uehara was one strike away from a 3-1 win, but with a quick turn of the hips Alex Rodriguez made it 4-3. Then Mo handled his business. I think you get the picture.

Best of All: The ninth-inning blast was A-Rod’s second of the game, giving him 25 for the year. He needs five more in the 15 remaining games to give him 13 consecutive years of 30 homers and 100 RBIs. Nobody’s ever done that before. Ever.

A.J. Burnett wasn’t bad A.J. I’ll take 7 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 6 K out of him any day of the week.

Worst of All: Mark Teixeira went 0-for-5 with a couple of K’s. That’s about it.

Coming Up: Game 2 is Saturday night featuring CC Sabathia in search of his 20th win of the year.
