The Orioles, this afternoon in California had yet another loss as the Los Angeles Angels defeated them, 7-1.
Just watched most of the replay on MLB.tv after a long day out in the Minneapolis area, and I’ll say this: things are ugly with the black and orange. I ended up turning off the game after the sixth inning and calling it a day.
At least it was a wonderful Sunday here and I'll see them live at Target Field on Monday night.
The losing goes on and on. They got swept by the Angels in three games and maybe their luck may change facing a Twins team that has fallen on hard times.
This season has turned into a horror story and after last night’s implosion by Kevin Gregg, Sunday’s game was not much better as Brian Matusz once again got hard on the mound. I don’t know what to say about the young man, but he has to figure it out on the mound. He’s a key part of the future – still – with the Baltimore Orioles.
Blake Davis was horrible at third today, but he was the least of the team’s problems on the afternoon.
Baltimore as a whole was horrible on the field and inept at the plate – in addition, on defense. They could not push runners across home plate and squandered opportunities all day to get on the scoreboard. Aside from Matt Wieters’ homer, nothing else went right.
Sadly, that has been the mantra of the team all year.
The Birds allowed the Angels’ starting pitcher Jerome Williams – who I had no idea was even in organized baseball – to earn a victory. Good for him, but pathetic for the Orioles.
