CLEVELAND (AP) -Mike Mussina earned his 253rd win, tying Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell on the career list, and the New York Yankees made the most of their five hits in a 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Mussina (3-3) allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, just long enough to catch Hubbell for 41st place. The 39-year-old had his second consecutive solid outing after there was speculation he might lose his spot in the rotation.
Mussina was followed by Jonathan Albaladejo, Kyle Farnsworth, Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera, who worked the ninth for his eighth save in eight tries.
Hideki Matsui had two RBIs as New York earned a split of the four-game series after losing the first two. The club now heads back to Yankee Stadium after playing 18 road games in April - the most by any team in the month.
Held without a hit for five innings by Aaron Laffey (0-1), called up to make his season debut for Cleveland, the Yankees strung together four hits - three of them didn't leave the infield - two groundouts and a hit batter to score four times in the sixth and take a 4-2 lead.
Earlier in the day, the Yankees placed durable catcher Jorge Posada (shoulder) on the disabled list for the first time in his career.
Orioles 3, White Sox 3, 11 innings, suspended
CHICAGO (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox were tied at 3 when play was suspended after 11 innings because of rain and a sloppy field full of mud and puddles.
The game will resume at the beginning of the 12th later this season, but no date was set. All the statistics from Monday count.
Juan Uribe hit a solo homer in the 11th off Baltimore closer George Sherrill, his first blown save in 10 chances this year. Sherrill then got out of a jam with runners at first and second.
Ramon Hernandez homered off Scott Linebrink in the top of the 11th to give the Orioles a 3-2 lead.
The start was delayed 2 hours, 6 minutes by rain and the gametime temperature was 38 degrees with wind blowing at 12 mph. The teams were rained out Friday night, forcing a doubleheader Saturday.
