After falling to R.A. Dickey and the Mets 5-0 Monday, Johan Santana (W, 5-3) handcuffed the birds, who fell to the Mets again by the same score.
The birds had their leadoff man back after over a year on the disabled list.
If Orioles manager Buck Showalter was waiting for Jake Arrieta to pitch his way out of his funk, he found out it wasn’t going to happen Friday night at Camden Yards. He just didn’t find out early enough.
The defense was every bit as sloppy as it has been all year. The pitching was worse than it has been most of the season, especially the bullpen. But, in Boston last night, the Orioles rediscovered an old friend—the offense—as they beat the Red Sox 8-6 in 10 innings.
The Baltimore Orioles, who has lost seven of their last eight, travel to Fenway Park to take on the up and coming Red Sox. Bobby Valentine’s club has won six of their last nine, including taking three of four from the powerful Tigers.
An outing that began looking as if Jake Arrieta was putting things back together again ended more reminiscent of every outing he’s had in the last month.
The Orioles 6-game losing streak is history, primarily thanks to Brian Matusz. Matusz gave up just 1 run on 2 hits and 3 walks in 7.1 innings, leading the Birds past Tampa 2-1 Saturday.
Facing an ace is no easy task, especially when trying to snap a 5-game losing streak. When a team knows after the first inning it will have to score at least 6 runs to win, the task can seem daunting.
