 Series results
 Game 1 @ Camden Yards
Russell Martin's homer off closer Jim Johnson sparked a five-run 9th inning as the New York Yankees took Game 1 of the ALDS, 7-2, in Baltimore. CC Sabathia pitched 8 2/3 innings for the win.
 Game 2 @ Camden Yards
Taiwanese rookie Wei-Yin Chen pitched into the 7th inning against veteran Andy Pettitte to lead the Orioles to a 3-2 win in Game 2, evening the series. Chris Davis drove in two runs with a two-out, bases-loaded single in the 3rd, then Mark Reynolds provided the winning margin with an RBI in the 6th.
 Game 3 @ New Yankee Stadium
Pinch-hitting for a struggling Alex Rodriguez in the bottom of the 9th, Raul Ibanez homered off Orioles closer Jim Johnson to tie the score at 1-1. Yankees manager Joe Girardi's bold move actually payed off twice, as Ibanez homered again against Brian Matusz in the 12th inning to give New York a 3 - 2 walk-off victory. Baltimore had taken a 2 - 1 lead on homers by rookies Ryan Flaherty and Manny Machado off Hiroki Kuroda, until Ibanez turned the game's tide.
 Game 4 @ New Yankee Stadium
The Orioles evened the ALDS against the Yankees with a 2-1 win, meaning that all four Division Series would go the distance this year. J.J. Hardy drove in the winning run with a double, scoring Manny Machado in the 13th inning in the longest postseason game in Orioles history.
 Game 5 @ New Yankee Stadium
Behind CC Sabathia, the Yankees fought off the pesky Orioles, 3-1, in Game 5 of the ALDS. Sabathia allowed only 4 hits in a dominant complete game effort. With Alex Rodriguez on the bench, New York scored twice in 6 innings against Jason Hammel, and Curtis Granderson added a solo homer in the 7th. The Orioles scored once in the 8th, but never mounted a significant threat against the Yankees' ace.
