About Last Night, Orioles Snap Win Streak, Ripken-Angelos, Dempsey

Last night, the Orioles saw their winning streak end as the Oakland Athletics defeated them, 4-2. Well, for the umpteenth time this season, a lack of offense (despite seven walks) and not getting runs in with on bases (they were 2-for-11 with men in scoring position), along with a huge gaffes by Ty Wigginton and Miguel Tejada in the field did Baltimore in.

The Orioles could not recapture the magic from over the weekend facing a swooning Nationals team against Oakland.

Oriole pitcher Brian Matusz pitched well, but earned his 9th loss of the season as he went 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. Koji Uehara made his return last night and pitched the ninth inning, allowing in a run.
