David Phelps pitched into the sixth inning, striking out nine, Bobby Wilson had three RBIs and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-8 on Wednesday night.
Phelps will start the season in the Yankees rotation because Phil Hughes will begin the year on the disabled list with a bulging disk in his back.
He allowed three runs on four hits in 5 1-3 innings. Phelps walked two.
Wilson had a two-run double in the second and a sacrifice fly in the sixth.
Jair Jurrjens started for the Orioles, but left in the second with a bruised right rib when he was a hit by a line drive by Thomas Neal.
Taylor Teagarden had a three-run home run and Nate McLouth a two-run shot for Baltimore.

What do New York Yankees fans like to be?
New York has a passionate fan base that likes to be in the know when it involves their beloved Yankees.
With 2013 Opening Day just days away, I thought that fans might benefit from viewing the 2013 team’s depth chart.
Otherwise things could get confusing for many when they see who is playing, what, and where come April...
The people have spoken, and the trade for Vernon Wells is now considered the top Yankee bad omen for 2013. (NOTE: The poll was taken before the signing of Lyle Overbay.) You chose Vernon Wells over "No Youth" by a tight margin, with "Youkilis," "Jeter limping," "Robbie sitting on generous offer," and "tomorrow's injury" coming...
Print. This. Out.1. April is strong. The scrap heap Yankees are long on scrap and short on - well - "heap," finishing that wordplay, despite lack of meaning. Lyle Overbay, Vernon Wells, Ben Francisco, Brennan Boesch and Cookie Rojas - (they coax him from retirement) - bring experienced professionalism and do something the team couldn't do last year: Hit with runners...

In order to make room for Vernon Wells on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have released infielder David Adams, according to WFAN’s Sweeny Murti.
Adams, 25, was originally drafted by the Tigers in 2005 but didn’t sign. In 2008, the Yankees took him in the third round. Last year, Adams hit .306 with eight homers and 48 RBIs in 86 games. Overall in his five years...

According to Yankees beat writer Erik Boland, the Yankees have signed first baseman Lyle Overbay to a minor league deal. The 36-year-old left-handed batter has spent 12 years in the major leagues with five different teams.
Overbay was released by the Boston Red Sox earlier this morning before joining the Yankees. Last season, he spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta...
Remember the whole to-do this winter about how the Yankees came up with their own ticket exchange system with Ticketmaster, snubbing StubHub? And how the only way Yankee fans were going to be able to print out electronic tickets on the secondary market was with the Yankees Ticket Exchange? And that because of this, StubHub was going to have to open up a location by Yankee Stadium...
Derek Jeter will begin the 2013 season on the disabled list. Jeter last played a game on Saturday and was still sore in his surgically-repaired ankle the following day.
The Yankees have already committed to starting the season with their captain on the disabled list.
Jeter could miss more then just the Opening Day game against Boston though. Jeter will be out of any game action until...
AL BEast Notebook – March 27
The Yankees made two moves this week, trading for Vernon Wells and signing Lyle Overbay to a “minor league contract.” Wells is expected to start the season in left field and Overbay is likely to be the Opening Day first baseman.
These moves practically scream “My name is Brian Cashman, I screwed up and it’s time to panic.”
Cashman and Hal...
Vernon Wells is excited about the chance to wear the New York Yankees' pinstriped uniform.
Wells went 0 for 3 with an RBI groundout in his debut with the Yankees, and the Houston Astros and New York played to a 4-all tie Tuesday night in 10 innings.
The Yankees completed a trade with the Los Angeles Angels earlier in the day to get Wells. The 34-year-old outfielder flied out...
I have stayed away from spring training because that Pukilis person is still a Yankee. And he remains unhurt.But a few things are emerging from the fog of spring:1. The Yankees are too old.2. They will continue to be beset with injuries.3. The injuries will be sequential. 4. The strategy of signing over-paid, slow, basically career-finished players, and making them very...
