Ely Sussman@@MrElyminatorCorrespondent IOctober 7, 2012

The New York Yankees abused All-Star closer Jim Johnson for five runs in the ninth inning and seized a 1-0 ALDS advantage with a 7-2 win against the Baltimore Orioles.

Russell Martin hit his second career postseason home run to lead-off the final frame.

First pitch at Camden Yards was delayed for two hours and 41 minutes by steady rain. The stadium was hosting its first playoff contest since 1997.

CC Sabathia (8.2 IP, 2 ER, 7 SO) threw 120 pitches and nearly tossed a complete game. It was already Monday morning when David Robertson came in to record the final out.

 

FINAL: NYY 7, BAL 2
