Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Russell Martin sparked a five-run ninth inning with a leadoff home run as the New York Yankees topped the Baltimore Orioles, 7-2, in Game 1 of their American League Division Series at Camden Yards.

Ichiro Suzuki added a run-scoring single in the ninth and finished with two RBI, while Robinson Cano also knocked in a pair of runs for the Yankees.

CC Sabathia (1-0) allowed the two runs on eight hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 8 2/3 innings in the win. He had been 0-2 in three starts against the Orioles this season.

Jim Johnson (0-1) surrendered all five runs -- four earned -- in the ninth to take the loss for Baltimore, which was coming off a 5-1 victory over the Texas Rangers in the AL's one-game wild card playoff.
