Rain on Saturday could be deja vu for Orioles, Yankees

From the Sun's archives: This time last year remnants of Tropical Storm Lee were playing havoc with the Orioles and Yankees. Both teams were getting water logged.

The Orioles had started a three-game series at Yankee stadium on a steamy Sept. 5, losing 11-10. On Sept. 6, Yankees won 5-3 after a 4-hour rain delay. Sept. 7, the Orioles triumphed 5-4 after playing 11 innings on a soggy day in the Bronx.

They returned to Camden Yards on Sept. 8 to play the Yankees in a make-up game from Aug. 27 that was canceled by Hurricane Irene. With rain threatening, the Orioles won 5-4 in 10 innings.

This year, the skies again threaten the Orioles and Yankee game set for 7:05 p.m. Saturday with an 80 percent chance of rain. Let's hope it holds off and the cool front comes in after the game.
