Daniel Cabrera, the Orioles' 6-foot-9 right-hander with a high-90s fastball and hit-the-mascot lack of control, knows his reputation around the league: He's not afraid to pitch inside, or, for that matter, plunk someone. So when one of his heat-seeking missiles buzzed behind the head and back of Boston's Dustin Pedroia in the fourth inning of the Orioles' 4-0 loss to the Red Sox last night - the club's 15th defeat in 17 games - the reaction was typical. Red Sox @Orioles Tonight, 7:05, MASN, 102.7 FM Starters: Daisuke Matsuzaka (14-11, 4.11 ERA)

Orioles manager Dave Trembley said yesterday that he hasn't made a decision on left-hander Brian Burres' starting spot, but he believes changes need to be made with the rotation. "I'm not trying to be threatening or anything like that," he said. "I love all these guys. They're great. But if it ain't working, we've got to try to do something to fix it. I'm not saying that's going to happen tomorrow or next week or whenever. But I think it definitely has to be considered. That's fair. I don't think anybody would argue with that."

Arlington, Texas -- No matter how bad their record is and how many blowouts they've endured, the Orioles have maintained all along that they haven't quit, that they haven't given up on a season that has dealt them one humbling blow after another. Last night, they found themselves in familiar position, trailing the Texas Rangers by four runs after the third inning and another short and ineffective outing by a starting pitcher. They cut the lead to one run in the fourth, only to watch their beat-up bullpen give two runs right back in the bottom of the inning.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was scratched from yesterday's lineup before batting practice, but not because he had been traded. That theory was put to rest almost immediately. Roberts has been dealing with some tightness in his lower back for about a week. Team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens examined him yesterday and recommended that he take a few days off, so Scott Moore made his first exhibition start at second base and batted leadoff. "It's one of those things that you play with all the time," Roberts said.

A tie for infamy The loss to the Red Sox was the Orioles' 11th straight at home, tying the club record for consecutive home defeats. The only other time in franchise history that it was done was Sept. 7-26, 1987. During the current streak, the Orioles have lost two to the Texas Rangers, four to the Minnesota Twins, three to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and now two to Boston. Different game, same result It was the second time in six games that Boston's Jon Lester and the Orioles' Daniel Cabrera have faced off. Each time, Lester has gotten the win and Cabrera the loss.

CONTROL CHALLENGED Before the game, Orioles manager Dave Trembley verbalized five things he wanted to see out of Radhames Liz. He wanted him to repeat his delivery, command his fastball, show that he could throw his slider or changeup for strikes, field his position and hold runners on. There were no opportunities for Liz to field his position, but Liz certainly didn't accomplish the other four. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed six earned runs. ANOTHER COMEBACK The Orioles trailed 8-5 heading into the seventh inning.

1. How low will they go? The consensus is that the Orioles will finally be overtaken by the Tampa Bay Rays and finish last in the American League East. It's hard to argue with that. The Rays have an explosive offense and have improved their starting pitching and bullpen. Immersed in a rebuilding effort, the Orioles have weakened just about all areas of their team in the present. But where they finish will be inconsequential to the front office, and it should be for the fans. This season is about growth and development and taking steps toward being a contender by 2010.

NOT GETTING IT DONE The Orioles needed Daniel Cabrera to continue his dominance over the home team at Yankee Stadium and to get deep into the game to rest an exhausted bullpen. He did neither. Cabrera's record now stands at 9-17, putting him ahead of Chicago's Jose Contreras for the most losses in the American League and tying St. Louis' Kip Wells for the major league lead. Only four Orioles pitchers have ever lost more games in a season. NOT GETTING IT DONE, PART 2 Trying to protect a three-run lead, Yankees rookie starter Phil Hughes was clearly tiring in the sixth.
