Guthrie Can't Stop the Bleeding

The Birds once again were unable to support Jeremy Guthrie, falling to the Yankees 5-3 last night.

Guthrie (10-10) didn't have his usual stuff, allowing five runs and leaving with two on and two out in the sixth. He walked just one while striking out seven, but allowed seven hits, two of them home runs.

The Birds were down 2-0 in the first but scored three runs in the second for a brief lead. New York scored twice more in the third and again in the fifth to knock Guthrie out of the game...

The O's are now 1-4 on the home stand and desperately need Daniel Cabrera to set the tone early later this afternoon....
