Yankees 5, Orioles 3
Carl Pavano gave up three runs in five innings and struck out five. (Nick Wass/AP)
Carl Pavano was understandably rusty out of the gate, allowing three runs in the second, but he settled down and completed five innings to earn the win in his first start since last April, backed by a dinger and three RBIs from Jason Giambi. Hideki Matsui notched his 500th RBI.
