How it happened: Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie experienced an unpleasant rewind to the 2009 season, when he led the American League in losses and home runs allowed. On this night, Guthrie lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) on six hits, a walk and a hit batsman. New York had scored six runs before the Orioles got their first, in the bottom of the third inning. Yankees starter CC Sabathia didn't have his best stuff, giving up three earned runs on 11 hits and two walks, but he was effective enough to last 7 2/3 innings and preserve the large lead with which he was presented.

He said it:: "I'm embarrassed by the way the game started, I was embarrassed by the way the game finished. I'm embarrassed that we had to run the bullpen out there for 4 1/3 innings because I was unable to keep the pitch count down and get people out. I'm apologetic to fans who pay to come and watch the Orioles and watch us lose, in this case, because of me. I'm apologetic to teammates for the inability to help them win a game in five starts. I'm apologetic to [Yankees catcher Jorge Posada] if he has to miss any time for [my] yanking a pitch and hitting him." -- Guthrie

You said it: "Jeremy Guthrie is frustrated that Yankees keep getting in the way of his pitches." -- Joe, commenting on Orioles Insider
