O’s Drop Twin Bill, the slow painful spiral continues

There’s only 4 games left. I wonder if this woeful team will win anymore games this season. For the month, their record is a staggering 4-18. There’s a chance they could win one more game.

Tonight is the finale against the Tampa Rays, who should thank the O’s when they win the AL East.

Thursday’s an off day, then the finale is a three game set against the Jays.

Then its over with. Hey, at least 100 losses didn’t happen…that’s one plus.

Last night, the O’s dropped both ends of a double header.

The first one was a 7-5 loss

Garrett Olson wasn’t bad, going 6 innings and giving up three runs..but James Shields is pretty good. Shields went 7 strong and struck out 8. The mistake by Shields (or any Rays pitcher) was a pitch that Lou Montanez took for a 2 run homer. Montanez has hung in their pretty good since his call up. I certainly would rather have him play than Jay Payton.

The back end was a 7-5 loss.

Alfredo Simon (such an awesome name) went 7.2 innings and probably pitched the game of his life. Simon gave 3 runs, walked none and struck out 6. Jamie Walker came in to get the 8th inning cleared and threw BP to the Rays for a bit. Walker went 0.0 innings, gave up 3 hits, 4 runs, and walked a guy. He’s a got a spiffy 6.87 ERA at the moment. Last season’s Jamie Walker seems like a long long time ago. Chad Bradford pitched for the Rays last night. He’s got a 2.05 ERA right now.

Last one against Tampa’s tonight. A win would be nice.
