The Orioles might just lose forever

It was another brutal night at the ballpark for the Birds.

That Orioles’ pitching staff is pretty bad, eh? Spenser Watkins has gone from fun story to flounder in a matter of months. It’s tough to imagine they will keep giving him starts sporting an ERA over 7. It’s a similar story for reliever Konner Wade, who just got knocked around again, serving up five runs on six hits in just 1.1 innings.

There are no saviors coming. Maybe someone like Alexander Wells or Mike Baumann can earn a call-up and pull off a string of interesting starts to wrap up the season. That feels more palatable than handing the ball to a long-time quadruple-A guy and praying for the best against a lineup that includes Shohei Ohtani.

But at least we all know that the pitching is bad. It’s almost not worth talking about. What is more interesting, though, is the offense. Ryan Mountcastle continued his hot August with two more home runs, and Anthony Santander got even hotter with a 4-for-5 night that included a round-tripper of his own. The former is looking like a mid-lineup force for years to come, while the latter might actually be playing himself back into an intriguing trade chip after all.

If you would like more in-depth analysis of last night’s misery, Harrison has got you covered with the recap. Or you can just read through the box score, let out a little scream, and carry on with your day.

Is it your birthday? Happy birthday!

1961 - O’s bench player Dave Philley sets a major-league record for pinch hits in a season, registering his 23rd base knock in such scenarios.

2014 - For the first time in team history, the Orioles record two instances of consecutive home runs within the same game. Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce go back-to-back in the third inning, and then Delmon Young, J.J. Hardy, and Chris Davis hit three in-a-row in the fifth inning. The O’s beat the Rays 9-1.
