The Baltimore Orioles enjoyed a night of "firsts" Thursday.

It was the team's first win against the New York Yankees in 11 games. Converted starting pitcher David Hernandez earned his first save. Utilityman Scott Moore hit his first home run of the year and first in the majors since 2008. Even Luke Scott hit his first triple of the year! But the night will probably be remembered as the first of the Jake Arrieta era. The 24-year-old right-hander was promoted from Triple-A Norfolk and beat the Yankees 4-3, allowing four hits and three runs over six innings.


To see how Eric values Jake Arrieta for 2010, you must be an ESPN Insider.
