Yanks tie game, 1-1, on Cano grounder

Derek Jeter opened the bottom of the sixth with a double down the line. Even with his achey, breaky foot, Jeter could easily motor into second. Ichiro Suzuki came up next, laying down a nice bunt that almost became a hit.

Mark Teixeira walked, bringing up Robinson Cano, who chopped a ball to the right side, but it was hit just a little too slowly for the O's to turn two:


The run scored, tying the game at 1-1. With the right-hander Alex Rodriguez coming up, Buck Showalter pulled Joe Saunders, who ended up with a mirror image of his start in the Wild Card game in Texas: 5⅓, one run allowed.

He was relieved by Tommy Hunter, who apparently throws 97 now. Did you know that? I didn't know that. And I'm thinking Alex Rodriguez didn't know that either, as he waved through a 97-m.p.h. fastball for strike three and left to a chorus of people chanting for Jay Bruce.
