For as bad as the Orioles have been this season, they seem to have played a lot of close games against the Yankees.

Tonight's game was no exception to that, as the Yankees rode (mostly) good pitching from CC Sabathia and scored a misleadingly low numbers of runs considering they actually had 10 hits and 5 walks.  Fortunately, the Orioles were just as inept in that department, only managing to score twice despite 13 baserunners.

Play of the Game: Who else would you expect?  Robinson Cano's 6th inning game-tying single increased the Yankees chances of winning by over 13%.
