BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Unfortunately, the Baltimore Orioles have started the second half of the season the same way the first half ended.

The Orioles’ Sunday loss to the Chicago Cubs dropped the team to a record of 20-38 in their last 58 games. Baltimore was once 22-11 at the beginning of the season. Now they’re staring at a record of 42-49.

The main issue facing the team is the pitching. Baltimore’s starters now have a 6.02 ERA in 2017.
