Orioles 5, Yankees 4: Nope, that is not a mis-print

How did that happen?

How did the Orioles (4-16) find a way to defeat the defending World Champion Yankees (12-7) Tuesday night?

Pretty much I think you pin this one on David Robertson, who was brutal in relief of Phil Hughes and Boone Logan, turning a 2-1 lead into a 4- deficit. Robertson now has a 10.80 ERA, and might be pitching his way back to AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre instead of into a more prominent spot in the bullpen.

Eighth-inning errors by Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada, which gift-wrapped a Baltimore insurance run, did not help either.

Comment of the Game: Not a single remark, but rather a whole thread. The 'Johnny Damon's throwing' thread that started with 'lolol' and ended with 'jramey.' Hilarious stuff.

Play of the Game: I don't really know for sure. Maybe Posada getting thrown out at third base to end the sixth inning. You guys tell me what you think.
