Orioles vs. Yankees ALDS Game 5 score update: New York up 2-0 after six innings

The New York Yankees lead the Baltimore Orioles 2-0 in Game 5 of the ALDS. Both teams have struggled to get their offenses going, with the Yankees taking the lead by manufacturing a run in the fifth inning. They added a second run when Ichiro Suzuki doubled home Derek Jeter in the bottom of the sixth.

Mark Teixeira picked up the first hit for the Yankees when he singled in the fifth. Teixeira then stole second base when Orioles pitcher Jason Hammel completely ignored him. Teixeira came around to score on a single by Raul Ibanez to put the Yankees up 1-0.

Nate McLouth recorded the first hit for both teams leading off the fourth inning. He moved to second on a stolen base, but was stranded there as CC Sabathia made quick work of the next three batters to retire the side. McLouth nearly tied the game in the top of the sixth, as his fly ball drifted just inches foul. Other than that, Sabathia has cruised through the first six innings, allowiing just the hit to McClouth and walking one while striking out five.

Troy Patton came in to replace Hammel with two outs in the sixth. He struck out Ibanez to end the inning.
