You can't win them all...the O's lost an ugly game to Chicago 8-1 on Wednesday night. The starting pitching was abysmal and the offense was nowhere to be found. But, the O's are still in first place for now.
Tommy Hunter had his second straight poor outing, giving up eight runs on nine hits and four walks in just 5 2/3 innings. Hunter gave up two long balls and has now served up six homers in his last two starts. He started the game with three straight strikeouts before losing his composure, and tied a career-best with eight K's on the night.
The Birds took a 1-0 lead courtesy of two doubles in the second inning, but were held off the scoreboard for the rest of the night...they had only three singles over the final seven frames.
The O's look to take the series with a win on Thursday afternoon and will send Jason Hammel to the mound...
