11-8

The O's snapped a 3-game win streak today, dropping one to the yanks. Here's what went down.

Daniel rolled thru the first 2 innings, but the steady decline started in the third inning. After a Cano walk, he was sacrificed to 2nd by the starting catcher, Kelly Sinnett. With 2 outs and Cano on second, Jeter knocked a single into left-center scoring a run and giving the yankees a fairly early 1-0 lead.

The yanks struck again in the 4th, when they started the inning with a single and a walk. The next play was a routine grounder to first. Millar threw it to second, and whattayaknow, Daniel doesn't cover. Bernie Williamsthen hits a Sac fly that would have been the 3rd out if Daniel had covered. 2-0 yanks.

Then the O's got on the board. Raul Chavez(who started for Ramon today) and Brian Roberts led off the inning with singles. Nick Markakis tried to bunt them over, but Chavez' lack of speed caused him to be thrown out at third. Then came Melvin, and on an 0-2 pitch he was hit, a big break for the O's. Miggy skied one to right field, scoring B-Rob and cutting the lead in half. 2-1 yankees.

After a 1-2-3 5th inning, Daniel cracked. In the bottom of te sixth the yankees led it off with a walk, followed by a single and another walk. Hideki Matsui then doubled, making the score 4-1. That was the end of Daniel's day, but he left 2 inhertited runners for John Halama. Bernie Williams grounded out, and after a walk and a pop out, it looked like Halama would get out of the jam and keep the O's in the game, but no so much. A Johnny Damon infield single scored run #5, and at that point Halama was pulled. In came Eddy Rodriguez, and 4 pitches later, Jeter walked, bringing in a run and making the score(after a Sheffield flyout) 6-1 at the end of the inning.

That was the end of the scoring. The O's 3-game win streak was snapped, as was their chance to take the lead in the division today. Boston lost, though, and we'll get a chance to take the lead tomorrow. Chen vs Randy Johnson. Go O's!
