The Orioles' pitching has done their best to keep their team in games the last few days, but it seems that everyone in the O's lineup is mired in a mid-season slump.
Yesterday, Jeremy Guthrie turned in a decent outing, giving up 3 earned runs in 6 innings, but once again the O's bats were silent as they lost 4-1. Mariners' pitcher, Felix Hernandez kept the O's hitters off balance all night as he held them to 1 earned run in 7 innings.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for yesterday's game is... Aubrey Huff!
Huff went 0/4 and was 0/2 with runners in scoring position.
Today, Koji Uehara returns from Disabled List to try and lead the O's to a series victory. It's only a matter of time before the O's start getting production from their young, talented lineup and if they can keep turning in solid pitching performances, they could become a scary second-half team.*
