BOSTON -- To a man, the Orioles aren't sure why they have had so many problems against left-handed starters, but third baseman Melvin Mora wants one thing to be clear. It's not one of those baseball anomalies chalked up to the relative newness of the season. "It's not a coincidence," Mora said after the Orioles were beaten, 10-3, yesterday by Boston Red Sox left-hander Lenny DiNardo. "There's not any excuses. We need to find a way to beat a lefty. I was talking to [Miguel Tejada]. Maybe [we need to]

Sitting at the media dais under the glare of television lights Thursday, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen made a prediction about his start Friday in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. “Well, I think tomorrow when I get up to the mound, I will be all sweating and nervous, just like I am now,” Chen said through interpreter Louis Chao as reporters in the room laughed. Chen then wiped his brow for effect. The Taiwanese left-hander has been through this before. In 2012, he allowed just one earned run in 6 1/3 innings to pick up the win in Game 2 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees.

Yankees updateThe Orioles wish they could be more like the Yankees right now. New York has underachieved all season, but is just a half-game behind Seattle in the wild-card race. The Yankees are 4-5 against the Orioles this season. The Orioles have almost no hope in the wild-card race. The Yankees do and have played like it, winning six straight before last night's loss to Cleveland. They've won seven of their last nine, 12 of their last 15, and 13 of their last 17. The Yankees' 13-4 record since Aug. 27 erased a 5 1/2 -game deficit in the wild-card standings.

Now the senior, as the wise veteran of the group, is starting with junior Bronson Kelly and sophomore Connor Reed. “I've been running with those guys forever,” Guida said of Greeley and Ranagan. “So it's definitely a little different with the new guys out there, but I feel like Connor Reed and Bronson Kelly have done a great job so far. I think it's just continuing to build week after week that chemistry, and hopefully our offense can continue to do what it's doing.” Guida did his part in the No. 12 Blue Jays' 14-5 demolition of visiting Michigan on Saturday.

DETROIT -- Six games into the season, the pattern already is clear. The Orioles are 4-0 in games started by Mike Mussina and Ben McDonald, 0-2 in games started by Jamie Moyer and Arthur Rhodes.Obviously, the fast starts by Mussina and McDonald are encouraging, considering the questions that surrounded them at the end of spring training and the importance of both to the Orioles' postseason chances.Yet, the Big Two will start no more than 75 of 162 games even if they stay healthy. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the Orioles can't win without adequate pitching from Sid Fernandez, Moyer and Rhodes.
