O's Lose Again: More of the Same, Rays Down O's 5-4, Late...

The Orioles have gone deeper into the abyss of badness.

Although the black and orange fought valiantly on Wednesday, the end result was the same -- a loss.

Once again, the bullpen was the culprit in the loss and Baltimore lost to Tampa, 5-4.

The Orioles had a 4-1 lead going into the into 8th inning, but the relief corps could not hold onto the lead and Danys Baez let the Rays tie the game in the 9th. Dioner Navarro singled in the tiebreaking run in the 12th inning, and Tampa would hold onto the win.

This would be their eighth loss in a row, and Dave Trembley has not won a game since being hired officially as the manager of the Baltimore Orioles. The $42 million bullpen has once again served to be the Achilles' heel of the team and one has to wonder how much more bad things could get.


The Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, Orioles Hangout, have their thoughts on the game as does Oriole Magic!

Roch Kubatko has the greatest and latest in Oriole-land in his blog, Roch Around the Clock as does Bill Ordine in his blog, O, by the Way...

Meanwhile, it looks like Erik Bedard will be skipped in the rotation this time around due to a strained oblique muscle that has been bothering him for quite a while...
