Ninth-inning rally falls short
Orioles 7, Yankees 5
Alex Rodriguez struck out three times and popped out to third base. (Gail Burton/AP)
 Matsui homers
Saturday's game began slowly, with Roger Clemens throwing 31 pitches in the first frame. The bats didn't get into gear until the seventh, when Hideki Matsui homered. That was it for the offense until the ninth, when the Bombers rallied for four runs, but it wasn't enough. Alex Rodriguez remains at 499 homers after going 0-for-4.
