Nobody in the West or final Wild Card spots are stepping up or playing well.
O’s lose a 1 run game finally! Rays 2 back headed into a 4 game series in BAL.The Orioles losing a series to the Cardinals (1-0 Cards in the 9th right now) is the type of thing that would make the AL East at actual risk.
Orioles 91-54 if they lose this
Rays are coming into Baltimore for 4 starting tomorrow. It's also been surprising how the Rays haven't missed Franco yet.
Winning run came on a very familiar story: 3-2 pitch with two out was called a ball (could have gone either way). Brandish was bothered by the call, grooved the next pitch and Riley hit it out to center.Rays 4 - O’s 3. Lead down to 1 game.
Big weekend in Baltimore!
The fan base, myself included, might not have wanted him gone so badly if someone in the Sox organization had said, "Hey, maybe try out a cutter and mix it in with your four seamer and sinker. It'll make you a sub-1.00 ERA pitcher".The fan base wanted him gone at least a year sooner.
Would be just the 2nd season with 11+ HR, and an RBI:HR ratio less than or equal to 1.6364:1 (dividing the now 18 RBI by 11 HR ). The other, Wayne Gross for the 1985 Orioles, put up these exact numbers, of 11 HR, 18 RBI.Josh Donaldson is playing for the Brewers now. He homered last night, giving him 11 HRs this season and a whopping 17 RBIs. That is hard to do.
Box score says they pinch hit for CanoThe Orioles let Yennier Cano bat, down a run, in the 10th inning (obvious K), which I think has to be a stupid move analytically. But, he pitched a scoreless 11th so I guess it officially worked out.
EDIT: Never mind, DL Hall came on for the 11th. I don't understand at all then what happened there.
