Oh man. It's has gone from bad to worse with this team right now.
It's become Friday Night Smackdown in Boston and the Orioles are getting their arses handed to them in a big way.
Showalter's blow-up on Wednesday didn't help at all.
I have no clue even what to say. I was hoping starting pitcher Zach Britton would at least put forth a decent effort to help Baltimore snap their skid -- um, it didn't happen.
He was going to be skipped after the All-Star break, but his effort tonight is very troubling. Maybe some rest will do him so good.
His line: 2/3 of an inning, eight runs - seven earned, two walks, a hit.
Of course, he was not helped out by a J.J. Hardy; however, it's been an ugly series so far for the Orioles. As it is, Josh Beckett is having his way with the Orioles and the offense can't seem to do anything.
