Yankees update

Seeking to avoid their first 100-loss season since 1988, the Orioles complete a home-and-home exchange with the Yankees this weekend after taking two wins in last weekend's three-game series at Camden Yards. The series victory included a dramatic ninth-inning comeback against Yankees closer Mariano Rivera and an 11-2 pounding last Saturday. The Orioles are still seeking their first three-game sweep of the season. They encounter a team that has beaten them in 12 of 16 games by crushing 22 home runs in 143 innings. The Orioles have hit 17 home runs against the Yankees but managed only a .314 on-base percentage. Having clinched their fourth straight AL East crown, the Yankees lack for motivation. Similar circumstances led to the Orioles' three-game sweep at Camden Yards last October. Shortstop Derek Jeter, slowed recently by a strained right hamstring, has just two hits in his past 20 at-bats. -- Joe Strauss
