Phil Hughes showed no significant improvement in his third start of the season, but this time the Yankees offense was able to make up for it. Saddled with a five-run deficit, the Yankees chipped away until Jorge Posada led off the ninth inning with game-tying home run and Nick Swisher won it with a sac fly in the 10th to beat the Orioles 6-5. Hughes was once again working with an 88-90 mph fastball and gave up five runs through 4.1 innings. Bartolo Colon and Joba Chamberlain kept the Orioles from pulling away, giving the Yankees a chance to rally.
