Trying to find good news about the Orioles these days is hard. Other than the fact that Adam Jones is in the lineup and the call-up of Matt Wieters is “imminent” in the minds of some, watching this team night after night is an invitation to frustration.

Last night, No. 1 starter Jeremy Guthrie gave up three homers in a row in the second inning to Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera but the team battled back to within 5-3 by the fifth inning. Guthrie turned the game over to Danys Baez in the 8th inning and all hell broke loose again as the Yankees batted around after Mark Texieira made the first out of the inning on a strikeout.

All told, Baez and Jamie Walker allowed six “icing” runs and the Orioles lost 11-4 to the Yankees in The Bronx.

The Yankees go for the three-game sweep tonight, sending Joba Chamberlain (2-1, 3.76) to the mound against Adam Eaton (2-4, 7.93), who has been so bad that tonight could very well be his swan song as an Orioles starter.

A few notes:

* Adam Jones added two more hits last night, including a homer in the 5th inning, and is batting .370.

* Robert Andino is kicking the ball while hitting his usual .226. He stinks.

* Nolan Reimold finally connected on a homer in the 9th inning last night off of Mariano Rivera.

The Orioles (16-24) get a brief reprieve this weekend when they travel to the nation’s capital to take on their MASN counterparts, the Washington Nationals (11-28) for a long holiday weekend of East Division doormats. Plenty of good seats are available.
