PLAY IT AGAIN

The Baltimore Sun

SAYING GOODBYE:: The last regular-season game in Yankees Stadium's 85-year history started with a ceremony that honored some of the best players in franchise history and ended with a Yankees victory. The Yankees went 4,133-2,430-17 in the stadium and won 26 world championships.

ROAD WORRIERS: : The Orioles finished the road trip with a 1-5 record, losing five straight after beating Toronto in the first of the six-game trip. They finished the season with a 31-50 record away from Camden Yards.

HIM, OF COURSE:: Veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte was picked to start the final game. He allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings to improve to 25-5 all-time against the Orioles. Only Whitey Ford and Catfish Hunter have more victories against the Orioles.

NOT INTIMIDATED: : Chris Waters struck out two of three batters in the first inning. He did allow five runs in 5 2/3 innings, all on homers. Johnny Damon hit a three-run shot in the third, and Jose Molina hit a two-run homer in the fourth.
