Moose carries heavy footsteps
Long inning dooms O's
Jon Leicester entered Tuesday with wins in back-to-back starts, but his magic ran out in a fourth inning that included six Yankees runs and chased him from the Orioles' 21st loss in a span of 27 games. Baltimore managed only three hits in seven innings against former O's ace Mike Mussina.

Series at a glance:
Yankees close in on Sox
In limbo for two weeks, Mike Mussina came up with easily his best start of the season, allowing just three hits in seven shutout innings against the team that groomed him, to pull the Yankees to within 2 1/2 games of the Red Sox in the AL East. A six-run fourth inning was more than enough.
