Score remains tied, but Yankees winning the pitch-count battle

Jason Hammel rolled through the top of the fifth in order, but at a cost. He's at 99 pitches thrown, so he's not expected to last much longer.

Meanwhile, CC Sabathia's pitch count remains healthily low. He worked around a solid single by 1B/DH/RP Chris Davis and a million-bounce grounder by Robert Andino escaped the CLUTCHES of Derek Jeter (see what I did there). Sabathia turned right around and struck out Nate McLouth and forced J.J. Hardy into an easy fielder's choice.

Sabathia is at 61 pitches through five and in great position to perhaps throw 15 innings if need be.
