Yankees win their third straight in a blowout

The New York Yankees won their third straight game tonight.  They won 13-2 over the Baltimore Orioles.  C.C. Sabathia pitched eight dominating innings and Amaury Sanit closed it out struggling but getting the job done.  He gave up two runs in that final inning but at least he didn't let it get too out of hand.  The offense was on fire, Derek Jeter had a couple of hits, Nick Swisher had a big game with four RBI, Jorge Posada had a double and a couple of walks.  Posada played first base for the first time this season and 16th time in his career.  The Yankees offense really needed a game like this as they have really struggled lately. 

The Yankees will now play a three game weekend series at Yankees Stadium against the Mets.  Freddy Garcia will start against R.A. Dickey on Friday night.  The Mets are without Ike Davis and David Wright who are both on the disabled list.  The Yankees will try and make it four games in a row.
