NEW YORK - Most of the blame for the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the New York Yankees tonight will be laid upon the shoulders of center fielder Adam Jones, whose dropped fly ball in the seventh inning let three runs score. However, other aspects of the club's performance can't be overlooked or easily excused. Let's start with the 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play that the Yankees turned in the eighth. Manny Machado was tagged out at second to end the inning after second baseman Robinson Cano fielded his one-hopper and threw to second for the force. Alexi Casilla, who held up initially, got caught in a rundown between second and third. Machado tried to take an extra base and paid for the decision.
