THE BIG LEAD
The Orioles are coming off a discouraging three-game sweep at Citi Field, but they've won 9 of their past 15 games, which works out to a .600 winning percentage that would have been good enough if the Yankees hadn't been on a terrific roll for most of that time. The O's are just fortunate that the Yanks finally lost a couple of games to the Braves, or there would be a lot more air between first and second place in the American League East. Now comes the second interleague series against the Nationals, which should make for an exciting weekend.
