O’s Lose — Again
Last night, the Orioles lost again to the Jays, 9-2, and stretched
their current losing streak to four games. Furthermore, the Orioles are
now 60-90, an unfathomable 30 games under .500. It looks like the
Orioles will certainly avoid 100 losses; however, now I don’t discount
it based on the performances I have seen from the bullpen.
Chris Tillman took the loss on Monday night as he lost his fourth
game of the season, going five innings and giving up four runs;
however, the bullpen — which has been awful the past month — gave up
four runs in the eighth inning, thanks to a subpar performance by Bob
McCrory (who each and every time I have seen him on the mound, he’s
been hit hard).
Felix Pie drove in both runs for Baltimore thanks to a RBI-single in
the second, and a sacrifice fly in the ninth; however, it seems like
the rest of the bats have simply fell silent.
Toronto got on the board first scoring three runs in the third
inning thanks to two-run single by Adam Lind and then a bases-loaded
walk. In the sixth inning, both Lyle Overbay and John McDonald each hit
solo shots, to put the Jays, 5-1, and they put the game away in the
eighth thanks to two-run doubles by Edwin Encarnacion and Travis Snider.
There’s not much else to say, aside from let’s hope the Orioles
finish the final 12 games of the season on a high nore; however, I see
quite a few changes from top to bottom that need to happen. I’d like to
say that Dave Trembley deserves to say, but after what I have seen, I’m
not quite sure if that will happen.
