O's vs Yanks...It Could Be Worse?

And it has been...kind of.

The Orioles have to play New York for one more three-game set this season. If they get swept again, it will be their worst beating at the hands of the Yankees since the unbalanced schedule started..a .166 winning percentage against the Bronx Bombers.

But it has been worse.

In 1955, the Orioles won only 3 games out of 22 against New York for a .136 winning percentage. And in 1985, Baltimore won but a lone game out of 13 against the Yankees for a sad .077 winning percentage.

This is not supposed to make anyone feel any better as the Orioles are on the verge of a historic season drubbing at the hand of the New York Yankees...just saying that it could and has been worse.

The best year? 1982 when the O's went 11-2 for a .846 winning percentage.
