Behind big contributions from their backup catcher and shortstop, plus another terrific start from A.J. Burnett, the Yankees beat the Orioles 4-1 on Tuesday. Francisco Cervelli had three hits, Ramiro Pena drove in two runs and Burnett fired 7.1 innings without an earned run.
Cervelli will likely be back in the lineup tonight because Jorge Posada isn’t expected to return until Friday at the earliest. The notebook also has items on Greg Golson being called up, Chan Ho Park making progress and a Sleepy Hollow woman winning the Yankees Honorary Bat Girl contest.
