PLAY IT AGAIN

The Baltimore Sun

OH NO, CANO:: Robinson Cano got the game-winning hit with a single up the middle in the ninth inning off Jamie Walker. But the key play came two batters earlier when the Orioles failed to turn a double play on Alex Rodriguez. Shortstop Juan Castro's throw pulled first baseman Aubrey Huff off the bag, putting runners on first and third with one out. Walker struck out Jason Giambi for the second out, then allowed the single to Cano.

WHERE'S THE O?: Brian Roberts' first-inning double, his career-high 51st of the season, was pretty much the Orioles' only offensive highlight. They managed only six hits and were shut out for the fourth time this season.

BURRES BRILLIANT:: Nothing Brian Burres had done the past couple of months indicated he was ready to deliver the type of performance he did yesterday. The left-hander held the Yankees to three hits and didn't walk a batter over seven scoreless innings in his first start since Aug. 31.

HE GIVES AND TAKES:: Adam Jones probably would have acknowledged that he should have caught Bobby Abreu's liner in left-center in the first inning. The ball hit off his glove for a double. Jones made up for it in the third as he made a nifty diving catch on Chad Moeller.
