Orioles Vs. Yankees, Game 2: CC Sabathia Looks To Continue Dominance Over Baltimore

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles will conclude their small two-game series at Camden Yards Tuesday, when ace CC Sabathia faces Wei-Yin Chen at 7:05 p.m. ET on YES Network. The Yankees (20-15) will try to take the two-game set after winning 8-5 on Monday.

Sabathia will look for his sixth win, as he's coming off a dominating eight-inning, 10-strike out performance over the Tampa Bay Ray in his last start. The last time Sabathia (5-0, 3.51 ERA) didn't win a start came on April 11 against Baltimore, which is a team he owns a 16-2 record against.

Meanwhile, Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (3-0, 2.43 ERA) will be getting his second start of the season against the Yankees. On April 10, Chen lasted 5 2/3 innings allowing four runs (two unearned) in a no decision.

Yankees Injuries Update: Ivan Nova, Clay Rapada, Raul Ibanez, David Robertson All Ailing

The New York Yankees earned a solid 8-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Monday. It came at a hefty price, hoever, as starting pitcher Ivan Nova, designated hitter Raul Ibanez and relief pitcher Clay Rapada were all injured. The bad news did not end there, as after the game it was revealed closer David Robertson is suffering from left ribcage soreness and will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

"I'm not really concerned," Robertson said. "I would like to get back out there as soon as I can. But I don't want to go out there and take a risk [and] end up putting myself on the DL for a long period of time. There's a little worry, but I honestly, don't think it's too bad."

Nova left Monday's game after he rolled his ankle in the sixth inning and may need to miss a start:

"The X-rays came back negative, so that's a good thing," Girardi said. "Basically, we're going to have to see how he feels tomorrow. I'm sure it's going to be sore where he got hit with the ball, and we're going to have to see how bad he turned it."

Meanwhile, Rapada was forced out of Monday's game with a viral infection, while Ibanez was hit in the elbow with a pitch from Orioles' Dana Eveland. Ibanez is expected to be available Tuesday.

Yankees Vs. Orioles Final Score: New York Wins 8-5 Monday Night

The New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 8-5, on Monday night in the opening game of a brief two-game series. Mark Teixeira gave New York the leadwith a tie-breaking two-run home run in the seventh inning. Ivan Nova started on the mound for the Yankees, but lasted just 5 1/3 innings after a right ankle contusion and sprain forced him off the mound. He gave up five earned runs off seven hits during his stint. Clay Rapada entered the game in relief of Nova, but lasted only two batters before being pulled with a viral infection.

The Orioles went up 2-0 in the first inning. They held that lead until the fourth when the Yankees tied the game off a Nick Swisher double to score Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano. Curtis Granderson hit his 12th home run of the season to put the Yankees up 3-2 midway through the fifth inning. Orioles starter Jason Hammel was tagged for five runs, four earned, and seven hits in his five innings.

The Orioles came back with three runs in the bottom of the fifth thanks to a Xavier Avery triple and a two-run J.J. Hardy home run. The Yankees tied the game again in the sixth when Chris Davis mishandled a bouncing grounder with the bases loaded to let in two runners.

Eric Chavez capped the Yankees' scoring with a sacrifice fly to center to send Teixeira around home. Rodriguez didn't record an RBI, but had a solid day at the plate going 3-for-5 for the night.

David Phelps (1-1) was the winning pitcher for the Yankees. Phelps pitched a scoreless inning of relief. Rafael Soriano earned his second save for New York. Luis Ayala (1-1) took the loss for Baltimore.

The series concludes Tuesday night.
