Yankees Ace C.C. Sabathia almost goes the distance going 8 2/3 and only giving up 2 Runs and striking out 7 with 1 Free Pass. O's Starter Hammel went 5 2/3 and only gave up 2 Runs and it was the O's Pen that kept them in this one until the Reliable Johnson gets Lit Up in the 9th.
#2, Ichiro, and Tex all get Two Hits and Ichiro and Cano each knock in Two. Chris Davis and Lew Ford get Two Hits each for the O's but that wasn't enough as the O's leave 7 on the Bags to the Bombers 8 Left on Bags.
Now in Game 2 Tonight the Bombers are trying to go back to the Bronx Zoo on the O's Elimination Dates with Old Lefty Andy Pettitte going vs O's Rookie Phenom Wei-Yin Chen of Taiwan. The Bombers know if they win the O's may officially have to turn to the Darkside for the Holidays...
