BALTIMORE — Late nights are nothing new for these Baltimore Orioles , not after spending their past 11 games on the West Coast. Their internal clocks finally rewound back to East Coast time after Monday's off day, the Orioles couldn't control the elements Tuesday night against the Kansas City Royals.

Playing through a bone-chilling Bronx cold not fit for mid-April was a challenge for both teams, and only the bravest fans filled the seats of a less than half-full Yankee Stadium.
