Snakebit. Orioles Lose Ninth in a Row to A's, 4-3. Let's Not Jump Off the Bridge Yet...

Saturday was once again painful for the fans.

The Orioles once again found another way to lose as Ryan Sweeney's walkoff two-run single in the ninth inning off Jim Johnson helped the Oakland A's win 4-3.

Johnson - who struggled last year in the closing role with the Sherrill trade - threw two wild pitches and loaded the bases to give Sweeney the opportunity to become a hero.

The bullpen once again blew it and now the Orioles are the worst team in baseball at 1-11. They have lost nine straight in a row.

If they needed even more bad news, Miguel Tejada hurt himself in the fifth inning as he was running from the batter's box and was writhing in pain; however, he says he's fine, but will miss a few games.

Baltimore has lost 11 out of 12 games to start the season, and this time around, the defeat was tragic. They once again started off behind as Oakland had a 2-0 lead; however, Garrett Atkins finally came through at the plate as he hit a two-run double to tie the game in the sixth.

The Orioles took a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning as Ty Wigginton - perhaps with the hottest bat on the team right now - drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.
