Birds Blanked, Drop Out Of First

For the first time this season, I turned off an O's game early. To be fair, I had worked all day and needed to get a two hour nap before heading back in. But after Tampa Bay took a 5-0 lead in the first inning, I had no trouble turning off the TV and catching a few z's.

I woke up to find the final score was the same as it was in that fateful first frame...the Rays blanked the O's and took over sole possession of first place on Friday night. It was the sixth straight loss for the Birds...

Wei-Yin Chen was the latest starter to falter, though he bounced back and lasted 5 2/3 innings. The bullpen followed with an impressive performance, but the early damage was too much to overcome.

It's tough to win when you don't score any runs, and the Birds were held scoreless on seven singles. Adam Jones and Matt Wieters both went 2-for-4. The O's haven't had an extra-base hit in the past two games...

Brian Matusz takes the mound Saturday afternoon as the O's try to snap the losing streak...here's hoping.
