O's miss late opportunity; lose again

The Orioles left the bases loaded in the ninth inning last night, and left Rogers Centre with a 3-2 loss.

Starter Garrett Olson (9-9) took the loss...Olson allowed three runs in 5 and 2/3 innings but his performance wasn't enough...the Birds managed just two runs in the fifth inning; Alex Cintron stroked a two-run single to put the Birds up 2-1 before the Jays came up in the bottom of the inning.

Down 3-2 in the ninth, the O's loaded the bases against Toronto's closer B.J. Ryan. With one out, Melvin Mora popped out in foul territory and Brian Roberts grounded out to end the threat and the game...

The Birds send Radhames Liz to the mound later tonight in New York City. It will be the final home series for the Yankees at Yankee Stadium...wouldn't a sweep be sweet? Go O's!

The Erik Bedard trade looks even looks like he'll be out for the next 6-9 months...
