The New York Yankees scored a run in the top of the first and fourth innings while the Baltimore Orioles tallied two runs in the bottom of the third. The result is a 2-2 tie entering the top of the fifth inning in Game 1 of the American League Division Series in Orioles Park at Camden Yards.
Trailing 2-1, Yankee first baseman Mark Teixeira collected a game-tying base hit, which hit the top of the right field wall, in the fourth. The long single -- Teixeira was thrown out at second base after trying to extend the hit into a double -- came of Orioles' starting pitcher Jason Hammel and answered a two-run third inning by the home team.
Nate McLouth delivered an earlier go-ahead hit in the bottom of the third inning for the Orioles. The knock came off of Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia with one out and scored both Chris Davis and Lew Ford to give Baltimore a 2-1 lead.
The hit answered New York's first-inning run that was scored by Derek Jeter, who collected a leadoff single and then scored on a double by Ichiro Suzuki.
