The Orioles lost to the Yankees last night in the second contest of a three game set, 4-1. This week, it looks like they have reverted back to the team we saw in April, and not during the Red Sox series.
Once again, a Oriole pitcher - Brian Matusz - threw a respectable game; however, the bats once again could not get anything going at the plate. He took the loss, and gave up three runs - only one earned - in six innings of work. Matsuz gave up and run in the first inning, plus two runs in the fifth in his outing (which were unearned and off a throwing error by him).
The Orioles only scored once off Yankee starting picher A.J. Burnett, who won on Tuesday, went 7 1/3 innings for the win. Baltimore scored a run in the third inning off a Burnett error, but could not capitalize on it with two men on base.
