Baltimore Orioles 6 — New York Yankees 1
Absent offense shut down by rookie Gonzalez in the 6-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
Hiroki Kuroda pitched effectively and efficiently but the home runs loom large when the offense cannot be found. In 8.1 innings, he gave up 8 hits but the biggest hits were the long ball. All-or-nothing batter, Mark Reynolds, had a big night for the...
There were no positives in yesterday's series finale between the Blue Jays and Yankees. None at all. Everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong: CC Sabathia was ineffective, the defense made 3 errors, the lineup was 3-17 with RISP, and the bullpen stunk.If it were earlier in the season it would be easy, as a fan, to follow that well-worn player mantra about turning the...
David Phelps is once again filling in for Andy Pettitte in a starting role, but pitching hasn’t been the concern for the Yankees as of late
Same song and dance for the Yankees again last night, a stagnant offensive unit. As has been the story of most games in recent weeks, the offense has been basically non-existent, leaving fans and players extremely frustrated as they watch their...
The New York Yankees have promoted Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A and put him in the starting lineup against Baltimore.
Nunez was listed as the designated hitter Saturday. He has previously played the infield and outfield for the AL East-leading Yankees.

According to a report from the gossip pages of the New York Daily News, Lindsay Lohan is evidently continuing her downward spiral into complete irrelevancy — or spit out the bottom of the porn industry– as she was spotted hitting the town and boozing it up with two former New York Yankees players whose names only [...]
The Baltimore Orioles rolled into Yankee Stadium with a lot to prove on Friday night. Only three games separate the O's from the from the first-place New York Yankees in the AL East and the black and orange birds don't want to do their annual swan song down the stretch.
If unbelievable catches show that the Orioles mean business, then Mark Reynolds set the tone early and...
NEW YORK -- Before his team raised even more eyebrows with another win Friday night, Buck Showalter's voice remained even keel, but his words were defiant. He was looking up, not down, he insisted, set on chasing the first-place New York Yankees in the American League East rather than checking who was behind his Baltimore Orioles in the wild-card standings. After the surprising...

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has had a job in two of the biggest media markets, New York and Boston, and with ESPN in the interim. He knows how to make a statement to get people’s attention. Recently on ESPN radio, he stated that the Baltimore Orioles were “lucky” to be where they are
On it’s face, Valentine seems to make a good point. Looking at the Pythagorean...
NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees watched the Baltimore Orioles jump on them early again. The Orioles showed they were not intimidated by the puzzled looks of those who question how they are still in the pennant race or the Yankee Stadium atmosphere -- which often deflates teams this time of year. The Yankees were beset with an early three-run deficit and another key player injured...
