Purchase one of the vinyl mats and place that in your sink. You can lean your dinner plates and larger items up against the wall of the sink. There are also mats out now that can sit beside the sink and take the excess water that might drain from your dishes. You could place your dish drainer on this and your problem would be solved. Hang up the mat in between doing the dishes so that it dries for the next time. They are washable and do a great job.
You can purchase one that is higher on one side to help with this issues. I got mine a couple of years ago at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
You could experiment with a temporary block to raise the end of the drainer tray farthest from the sink. Depending on how high your raised sink lip is, you may find it's just not possible to get the slope you need to drain into the sink without making it hard/impossible to position fragile dishes in the drainer in a stable fashion. On the other hand, if it does work, you can either work on a more attractive way to raise the end or shop for a new drainer and tray with that much slope. Otherwise I think you're stuck with manually draining the tray often enough so it doesn't get yucky.
I use the second sink for hot water with vinegar to kill the soap suds , rinse and then place on the mat.
