First innings aren't always eventful, but Thursday's between the Yankees and the Orioles was. Joba Chamberlain left the game after being hit in the leg by a line drive. In the bottom of the inning, the first three Yankees to bat doubled, and the Yankees put up a four-spot en route to a 7-4 win over Baltimore. It was their ninth straight win. Alfredo Aceves picked up the win in relief of Chamberlain, who had X-rays on his leg come back negative. Robinson Cano, hitting second with Johnny Damon getting the night off, had an RBI double and a two-run homer among his three hits. Mark Teixeira also had an RBI double in the first and had two hits. Melky Cabrera had a critical two-run double.
