Yeah I know. I've been horrible with these lately. But no one besides my family and a select few of my friends still read this site, so screw all of you.
The O's had a miserable showing against the Yankees early last week. If you were fortunate enough to be doing something else while these games were going on, here's what you missed (hint: not much):
On Monday, the O's wasted a great pitching performance by David Hernandez (6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 4 Ks) as Andy Pettitte used his pitching wizardry to hold the O's to 1 run in 7 1/3 innings. As a team, the Orioles left 16 runners on base and this eventually caught up to them, as Hideki Matsui hit a walk off homer off of Jim Johnson in the 9th inning, giving the Yanks a 2-1 victory.

Izturis went 1/3 with 2 strike outs, while leaving 3 men on base.
On Tuesday, the O's outhit the Yankees nine to six, but still lost 6-4, as Rich Hill pitched miserably again, giving up 5 runs in 3 innings. Melvin Mora led the O's with 2 RBIs.

On Wednesday, the Orioles starting pitching failed them again as Jason Berken gave up 5 earned in 6 innings. The O's surged late, scoring 2 runs in the 7th and 2 in the 9th, but it was too little too late as they were swept by the Yankees 6-4.
