O's Lose Again; Sox Beat O's 3-2, The Rundown...

I just got home from a wonderful weekend in New England, but sadly the Orioles were only able to take one game from the pesky Boston Red Sox.

Baltimore lost again 3-2, to Boston.

It’s plain and simple – the Orioles are in a rough stretch, actually, the more apt word would be horrendous.

They once again lost to another youngster, Jon Lester; however, Daniel Cabrera had another quality start, but a lack of offense and base-running miscues did the Orioles in.

The Black and Orange start a three-game series in Tampa tonight, and then return back to the Yard to face Boston once again in a four-game set.

Well, these past two weeks has been a period of unprecedented badness for the Orioles and hopefully they can finish the last few weeks strong.

Kurt Birkins, who has been up and down between Norfolk and the majors, will get his first MLB start tonight. He’s been working as a reliever in Baltimore; however, he was a starter, and a good one in Triple-A.


The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the game last night, as does the Baltimore Examiner, Orioles MLB site, Washington Post and Orioles Hangout.

Columnist Peter Schmuck wonders how much further the Orioles can go with their losing ways…

Meanwhile, the Orioles MLB site has a mailbag up and one of the questions is about Dave Trembley’s job security.

Top prospect Billy Rowell has been hurt for much of the season; however, he’s been solid in Single-A Delmarva.

If there’s any good news that the Orioles have had as of late recently, it’s that the workers have now postponed their hunger strike against the Maryland Stadium Authority. It looks like the state is willing to look into the matter and perhaps improve things for the workers.
