On the field: Cal Ripken was charged with an error on an odd play in the sixth inning. Milwaukee left fielder Marc Newfield hit a hot smash back to pitcher Roger McDowell, who deflected the ball toward Ripken. But the Orioles' shortstop couldn't field the ricochet cleanly, his 11th error of the year. That broke a streak of 65 errorless innings by the Orioles.
In the dugout: Esteban Yan did not pitch yesterday. He did not pitch the day before that. In fact, he hasn't pitched since being called up from Triple-A Rochester on Aug. 3.
