With the temperature dropping below fiftty degrees at Oriole Park the Baltimore Orioles defeated the New York Yankees to even the American League Divisional Series.
Rookie left-hander Wei-Yin Chen started for the Orioles. Chen who had spent four seasons pitching in Japan was making the biggest start of his career. Chen would pitch into the seventh.
Jim Johnson would come into the game in the ninth and redeem himself following Sunday nights loss.
The Yankees struck in the first inning. Robinson Cano doubled home Ichiro Suzuki. Andy Pettitte would keep the Yankees ahead until the Orioles struck in the bottom of the third.
It was the bottom of the third that saw Robert Andrino and Nate McLouth score on a Chris Davis single. The Orioles would knock in another run in the bottom of the sixth when Matt Wieters doubled off Pettitte to start the inning and Mark Reynolds followed that up with a run scoring single.
Pettitte bucked down from there. He got Jim Thome to strike out and then induced a double play off the bat of Manny Machado.
Eduardo Nunez started the Yankees half of the seventh with a double. The next batter, Derek Jeter would drop a single over the infield to drive him in cutting the lead to 3-2.

When the Yankees attempted to travel from Baltimore to New York on Tuesday via train, there were electrical difficulties. As a result, the team disembarked in Aberdeen, Md. and switched over to buses for the rest of the trip. "Well, I think our guys made the best of it and kind of laughed...

Dontrelle Willis has come a long way since being named the 2003 NL Rookie of the Year. After raking in over $40 million in career earnings, it appears the wily lefty is a little strapped for cash. After putting $40,ooo worth of modifications into his baby, it appears Willis is ready to unload his 2007 Dodge Charger. Who cares if its a hideous “Limited Edition Sublime Daytona...
In the first two games against Baltimore, Alex Rodriguez is 1 for 9 with a walk and five strikeouts. last night, he came to the plate five times and made five outs, though his first inning double play was a line drive that could have easily been a base hit had it gone a foot further to the left. Still, with his game-ending strikeout that followed a seventh inning whiff with the...
