Orioles Lose to the Yankees, 8-5; The Losing Continues...

The New York Yankees, as we all know are dangerous and thanks to winning two out of three in Boston are within striking distance of the AL Lead.

Now they are only 3 ½ back of the Red Sox.

Last night, the Orioles rolled into the always intimidating confines of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx looking to capitalize on their successful series with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Sadly, last night it did not go so well as the Orioles lost, 8-5. Phil Hughes won, while Cabrera took the loss.

The bad Daniel showed up again, and the Yankees took advantage of him. Alas, there was surely not a repeat of his brilliant, one-hit, performance from last season.

Cabrera only lasted five innings and gave up six runs in the losing effort. The bullpen allowed two more runs after his exit. Doug Mientkiewicz and Bobby Abreu had two RBIs for the Yankees, and Jorge Posada had three hits.

Nick “the Stick” Markakis had three RBI’s and Aubrey Huff & Tike Redman drove in a run each.

The Orioles have lost their 85th game of the year, and they’ll try to win again tonight as well as on Wednesday.


The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the game, as does the Baltimore Examiner, Washington Post, Orioles MLB site, & Orioles Hangout.

Roch Kubatko has his thoughts on the relief situation and the game last night.

Bill Ordine has his thoughts about the Orioles, and he notes that the team is dead last in the Sports Illustrated (SI) power rankings.

Well, Jay Gibbons met with baseball officials today in New York City concerning his alleged use and receipt of performance enhancing drugs.

Jamie Walker has broken the club record of relief appearances for the Orioles with 77. Keep in mind, he was signed to be a situational guy; however, his role his morphed into much more.

It looks like Daniel Cabrera has dropped his appeal of the suspension handed down by MLB for his incident against the Red Sox.

Spencer Fordin on the Orioles MLB site has a great mailbag, this time questions center on Erik Bedard, Leo Mazzone, trades and Tike Redman.
