Rodriguez, Yankees aim to get back on track vs. Orioles

Jul 29, 2007 - 2:35 PM NY Yankees (55-49) at Baltimore (49-54) 1:35 pm EDT

BALTIMORE (Ticker) - Alex Rodriguez still is looking for his 500th home run. The New York Yankees just want a win against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Orioles aim for their season-high seventh straight victory and a sweep of the Yankees in the finale of a three-game set at Camden Yards on Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday, Brian Burres tossed six solid innings and Miguel Tejada drove in four runs as the Orioles held down Rodriguez and the Yankees' stagnant offense in a 7-5 victory.

Rodriguez is 0-for-9 with four strikeouts since belting his 499th blast on Wednesday at Kansas City, including 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Saturday's loss. But more importantly for New York, the club is looking to get out of its collective rut.

After 11 wins in 13 games, the Yankees have lost three in a row, including the first two to the Orioles in this series.

They will look to get back on track behind Chien-Ming Wang (11-5, 3.57 ERA), who allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings, striking out three and walking two in a 9-4 win at Kansas City last Tuesday.

Wang, who is 2-1 with a 4.87 ERA in seven games - six starts - against the Orioles in his career, has won eight of his last 11 outings.

He will be opposed by Daniel Cabrera (7-10, 5.04), who is coming off one of his best starts of the season in a 3-0 win vs. the Tampa Bay Devil Rays last Tuesday. The righthander allowed just one hit in seven frames, while walking five and striking out three.

Baltimore has not won eight in a row since 2003.
