Having lost four of their past five games, the Yankees got back on the winning track with an 8-3 win against the Orioles on Wednesday. CC Sabathia pitched into the eighth inning for the third time this season, getting big outs when he needed them and continuing his strong start to the season.
The downside was a second-inning pitch that hit Jorge Posada just above the right knee. Posada left the game and is unlikely to play tonight’s series finale. The notebook also has items on the all-star game, Chan Ho Park and the return of HOPE Week.
