Orioles Lose Again: Rangers Upend them, 3-2...

Can anything go right for the Baltimore Orioles?

Well, like a broken record, they lost again – this time, to the Rangers, 3-2.

The Orioles nearly came back in the ninth inning; however, the bullpen for Texas was able to keep the game in check. Baltimore helped Texas big time in end as Paul Bako struck out for the second out in the ninth inning and then Melvin Mora got caught stealing to end the game.

The play to end the game has been very indicative of the Orioles’ season.

Miguel Tejada homered to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead in the second; however Texas took the leasd, 2-1, in the bottom of the inning off a single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia that scored both Sammy Sosa and Nelson Cruz.

Cruz homered in the fourth inning to put the Rangers up, 3-1.

The Orioles added another run in the 9th off a Scott Moore sacrifice fly, but came up short.


The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the game, as the Baltimore Examiner, Orioles Hangout, Washington Post, & Orioles MLB site.

In light of the pathetic year the Orioles are having, Nick Markakis’s profile is being raised in baseball, because of his bat and glove.

It looks like Ramon Hernandez has been benched for two consecutive days, as Trembley thought he was tired. However, I think it may be that Ramon may not have the hustle and seems to be playing some lazy baseball. In the same report, Jeremy Guthrie threw without pain and may be back in the lineup sooner rather than later; alas, Danys Baez is contemplating surgery.

However, Ramon is back in the lineup tonight…

Roch Kubatko has his thoughts of what is going on in Oriole-land, and it’s not good.

The Orioles prospects are ready and primed for sunny Hawaii – hey, it’s not Mexico.
