Well, as we all know by now, the Orioles lost a very close game to the Detroit Tigers by a score of 3-2, thus extending the team’s slide even further. Even though Sam Perlozzo shuffled the lineup to add a spark to the team and try something different, the end result was the same – yet another loss.

He was definitely important to the team, and was pretty much the right hand man to Peter Angelos.
Well, at least something went the Orioles way – MLB had denied the Indians’ protest of Saturday’s game.
Michael Olesker of the Examiner wished the Tigers and the Orioles would have got it on in
