Yankees Sweep O's Away

Daniel Cabrera turned in his shortest outing of the season and the Birds were swept at Camden Yards for the first time this year, falling 8-7 to the New York Yankees.

The Birds handed Cabrera an early lead in the first inning; Melvin Mora and Aubrey Huff hit back-to-back jacks to give the O's a 2-0 advantage. Cabrera couldn't hold on, but the O's battled back and tied the game at seven after Brian Roberts drilled a 2-run shot in the fifth.

It wasn't enough...reliever Jamie Walker gave up a solo homer in the seventh and the Yankees held on for the was Walker's second loss of the season; both came in this series...

The Orioles are 1-5 on the home stand and are now a season-worst seven games under .500. They face the Chicago White Sox Monday night...the rained-out game from late April will resume at 6:05, the regularly scheduled game starts at 7:05...Chris Waters will make the start for the Birds...
