Following the Orioles¿ 4-2 loss to New York in the Yankees¿ home opener at Yankees Stadium on Monday afternoon, right-handed starter Ubaldo Jimenez talked about being crippled by not being able to locate his breaking ball.
Tuesday night¿s game -- and the momentum of the Orioles' September push toward the postseason -- both took a turn for the worse in the eighth inning of Baltimore 7-5 loss to the Yankees at Camden Yards.
The Orioles entered the sixth inning of Tuesday night¿s loss with a 4-1 lead, but the game unraveled because the bullpen was shorthanded and manager Buck Showalter felt he had to leave rookie Kevin Gausman in for a second inning against the heart of the New York Yankees lineup.
Miguel Gonzalez had dominated in the Bronx, pitching to a 2.20 ERA in five previous outings, including an American League Division Series start here last season. But on Friday, Gonzalez picked a bad time for his first rough outing at Yankee Stadium.
