NEW YORK — A day after being shut out on three singles, J.J. Hardy and the Baltimore Orioles got blanked for six innings Sunday on what was shaping up as a lost weekend.
‘‘We were a little flat. We could all see it, we could all feel it,’’ Hardy said.

The Orioles rallied against Andy Pettitte and a faltering bullpen. Michael Morse lined a leadoff single to begin the comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
