Update, 7:07: We’re starting on time.

Update, 7:27: Derek Jeter’s hamstring didn’t appear to be bothering him on that grounder up the middle off the bat of Luke Scott here in the second.

Update, 7:37: Both Javy Vazquez and Brian Matusz have been pretty much in complete control these first two innings. Headed to third. Can anyone get a hit?

Update, 7:40: Answer, yes someone can. Adam Jones gets the first one, a single to right-center.

Update, 7:49: And now we have a Yankees hit, too, here in the third. And it was a milestone hit for Derek Jeter. The double was No. 450, breaking a tie with Bernie Williams for second on the Yankees’ all-time list. Only Lou Gehrig at 534 is ahead of The Captain. Jeter is now 185 hits from 3,000.

Update, 7:56: Mark Teixeira must have hurt himself on that last dribbler to the right side to end the third, or maybe when he was hit by a pitch in the first, because he’s out of the game. Juan Miranda is at first for the top of the fourth.

Update, 8:04: Robinson Cano’s hitting streak is now up to 15 games after this fourth-inning single.

Update, 8:18: There literally was a rainbow over Vazquez when he fanned Jones to strand a runner on second with two outs in the fifth, blowing a 91 mph fastball by him, very impressive. It’s 0-0, last of the fifth now.

Update, 8:23: Curtis Granderson has come to life against lefties. The shot to the right-center seats finally meant the first run of the second. This was his fourth hit off a lefty since coming off the DL Friday.

Update, 8:30: OK, here’s the update on Teixeira. He suffered a bruised left foot when he fouled a ball off during his second at-bat, in the third. X-rays were negative, and he’s day to day.

Update, 8:41: Vazquez was one strike away from getting out of the sixth with his shutout intact, but he grooved a 1-2 fastball to Corey Patterson, and it landed in the second deck in right – 1-1, heading for the home sixth.

Update, 9:00: The Yankees blew a great chance there in the sixth, first and third, no one out. Matusz handled Granderson this time for the final out.

Update, 9:21: Well, Matusz is finally out in this 1-1 game. Nice job by the rookie lefty. David Hernandez is coming in with second and third and two outs to face A-Rod here in the seventh.

Update, 9:25: Would hate to be an Orioles fan. Tejada just bounced the throw to first on A-Rod’s grounder and it deflected away from Ty Wigginton, so two runs scored. It’s 3-1 and Joba is on for the eighth. Be interesting to see if he’s the good Joba or the bad Joba.

Update, 9:50: It was the good Joba. And a good Mariano Rivera. Yankees win, 3-1
