Where Did The O's Bats Go?

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.*

*Note: This is wishful thinking and will almost certainly not happen.
