Orioles Lose Again; Markakis Vents About the Team and Buck Showalter

Once again on Wednesday, the Orioles lost again, 6-3 to the San Francisco Giants. Jeremy Guthrie took his 8th loss of the season as he went six innings and gave up four runs in his outing.

Perennial Cy Young award candidate Tim Linecum got the easy win and gave up two runs, striking out ten in six innings, plus walking four. He got hit with a line drive off the bat of Miguel Tejada and had to leave the game. Despite his solid numbers, the Orioles got him

The Orioles kept things close until the latter third of the game as San Francisco, with a 4-3 lead, scored twice in the eighth inning to decide the game.

Boy, wouldn’t Aubrey Huff look good in an Oriole uniform right now. He went 3-for-4 with a homer yesterday and for a guy who got no other offers from the other 29 teams in Major League Baseball this offseason, Huff is sure having a nice, bounce-back year.

Of course, once again the Baltimore offense was the problem and yesterday’s game was a microcosm of why they are where they are.

The Orioles managed eleven hits, got seventeen runners on base and over-and-over again throughout the game had a chance to tie or break things open; however, they were a putrid 3-for-14 with men in scoring position.

Baltimore is now 18-48, a sad 30 games under .500 and on pace to become one of the worst baseball teams to ever take the field in recent memory.

The result on Wednesday on left coast is a big, big reason why.

Moving on…
