After an eight-game winning streak, the Yankees have now lost two in a row after a 4-3 disappointment this afternoon against the Orioles. Starter A.J. Burnett never had an especially brutal inning, but he allowed one run four times, having let the lead-off man reach base in three of those innings. Alex Rodriguez homered and drove in a run on a sac fly — giving him 100 RBI for the year — but Robinson Cano’s RBI bloop single was the Yankees only other run-scoring hit.
