What can you say about the Orioles? Things have not been going well for them lately, and home is certainly not where the heart is.
Like a broken record, the end result on Thursday night has been the same for the past week.
They lost again.
The Devil Rays won last night and beat the Orioles 8-6, for the series sweep. Baltimore starter, Jeremy Guthrie was off last night and he gave up six runs in six innings. The bullpen was not horrific, but once again they did not look good.
The O's had the lead early, 3-0; however, thanks to several Tampa Bay homers, they were able to secure the win.
The loss on Thursday left the Orioles 1-9 on the homestand.
Also, Dave Trembley STILL has not won a game since he has been hired as manager of the Orioles.
With the O's playing the Red Sox in Fenway this weekend, could things get worse before they get better?
Roch Kubatko in his blog gives us the gory details of the latest homestand as does Bill Ordine.
The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the action last night, as well as the Baltimore Examiner, the Washington Post, Orioles Hangout, & Oriole Magic!
Meanwhile, the Orioles are being cautious with Matt Wieters and he will not play until the Hawaii Winter League, as the team wants him to get into baseball shape.
On Thursday, Jon Leicester was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk and Rob Bell, who has been nothing but putrid, has been DFA'ed.
