Staked to an early 4 run lead, Wang was able to hold on, despite another so-so performance from the young man. CM Wang pitched 6 innings against the Orioles and allowed 3 runs on 9 hits - to go along with 4 walks and 1 K. For the second start in a row, Wang exhibited problems with his command (it also didn't help that the ump seemed to be calling a tight strike zone) and allowed almost as many fly balls vs. ground balls (7-8). Fortunately for Wang, the Yanks offense would come up big again as they snapped a three game losing streak to defeat the Orioles 10-6 on Sunday. With today's win, Wang is now 12-5 on the season with a 3.61 ERA. Box/Recap
