The Week So Far.. O's Stumble in Series Versus Jays

Yesterday, the Orioles got trounced again by the Blue Jays, 8-2, as Kevin Millwood once again got lit up in another start on the mound. The veteran only lasted 5 1/3 innings and gave up six runs – five earned – on ten hits. The Jays broke open the game with a three-run first inning and didn’t let up from there.

Who knows what trade value – if any – Millwood has at the moment.

The Orioles once again were buried by a poor pitching effort in the opening portion of the game. For a team that’s struggling mightily to score runs, they were done after that. Amazingly, the Orioles have not beaten the Blue Jays in 11 chances this season.

Jose Bautista continued his breakout year by slugging his 29th and 30th homers off Baltimore pitching (Millwood and Simon).

If there was one positive to come out of last night’s game, it may be the work of Mike Gonzalez. He went 1 2/3 innings and didn’t give up a run. It’s good to see Gonzalez work his way back in less pressurized situations, and get his mechanics plus confidence back in order.

The Orioles are now an astonishing 31-69; meanwhile, the Blue Jays – a team a lot in the media, online or wherever finished to PICK LAST in the AL East – are 52-49.
