FIVE AWAY

BRONX BUMMER
Boston beat New York 11-4 on Friday night. The Yankees (8-13), have lost seven consecutive games for the first time since the final seven of the 2000 season. The last-place Yankees have fallen 6 1/2 games back of the division-leading Red Sox.

STREAKING
Cleveland beat Baltimore 5-4 on Friday night to extend its winning streak to six.

SNAPPED
Arizona beat San Francisco 3-2 on Friday night, snapping the Giants eight-game winning streak.

OUT
Ken Griffey Jr. remained out of Cincinnati's lineup for a second day Friday with pleurisy, an inflammation in the lining of a cavity surrounding the lungs. Griffey was held out of Thursday's game in St. Louis with soreness in his chest. A chest X-ray on Friday revealed the problem, which is not expected to linger. After missing most of spring training because of a broken hand, Griffey has a .254 average with nine RBIs in 18 games this season.

SPEAKING
``It's as frustrating as you can get. It's embarrassing is what it is. It's a joke that I can't go out there and get through six or seven innings right there when the team needs me to do that as bad as they do.'' - Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte after New York's 11-4 loss to Boston on Friday night. Pettitte allowed five runs, six hits and five walks in 4 2-3 innings, making it 11 times in 21 games that New York's starters failed to pitch five innings.
