Orioles fans all over the Mid-Atlantic region have to be asking themselves the same question: how many times are we going to have to watch the same game? On Wednesday night, the Orioles did what they've done so often over the past several weeks. They took an early lead and then waited to see if their starting pitcher and bullpen can throw six or seven scoreless innings to make a small handful of runs hold up. Of course, it has to be even more galling when it's against the New York Yankees, who have played with a decimated roster all year, but somehow slipped in front of the Orioles in the American League East and wild card standings on Wednesday night.
