I was hoping the Baltimore Orioles would use the All Star break as a change to recharge their batteries and come out fighting, but it looks like that case of terrible they caught is still lingering. Last night’s game against the Cleveland Indians was basically over before it got started. Jeremy Guthrie gave up two home runs in the first inning and the Tribe went on to beat the O’s 8-4. Nick Markakis drove in 2 runs with a single early but came up later with runners on second and third one out and the game still in doubt and popped up on the first pitch. I guess there’s always tomorrow.
