Gameday Post #10: Baltimore Orioles at Yankees, Part Deux

OK, let’s try this again.

The Yankees looked overmatched on Sunday night as Josh Beckett dominated the Yankees through 8 innings en route to a 4-0 win. CC Sabathia labored again through 5 2/3 IP but allowed just one run in taking his first loss of the season. The offense was horrible, mustering only singles from Robinson Cano and Eric Chavez.

After last night’s rain-out (the 2nd in 3 home games), A.J. Burnett will take the hill against Baltimore’s Chris Tillman.

PITCHING PREVIEW (from MLB.com)
Chris Tillman (BAL) — Tillman is coming off an uneven outing in which he allowed four earned runs to Detroit in Saturday’s no-decision. The 22-year-old tossed a 32-pitch first inning and was doomed by a high pitch count, exiting after allowing six hits over 4 2/3 frames.

A.J. Burnett (NYY) — With Tuesday’s game postponed, Burnett’s start was pushed back a day. For the second time in three seasons with the Yankees, the righty has bagged wins in his first two starts.
