Well, the Baltimore Orioles lost yesterday to the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-6, at Camden Yards on Friday night. The record will show that the Orioles chipped away at the Phillies lead – as they came back from a six-run deficit; however, in reality the game was over for them before it began.
The offense did their part, but the starting pitching was a whole another story.
Jake Arrieta, who had talked about setting the tone for the Orioles pitching staff on Opening Week, suffered on the mound again. He gave up nine runs on eleven hits in four innings of work, and my ticket partner plus several other fans in our section were wondering if we had seen the last of Arrieta in Baltimore for a while.
The right-hander gave up six runs in the second inning, and that spelled certain doom for the Orioles.
The news became official this morning. Arrieta is going down to the minors; therefore, after seeing what happened in Baltimore last night, there is little reason why.
It was just ugly on Fri...

I haven't seen an entire Oriole game start-to-finish in a while unfortunately, or posted anything about the team. Got bits and pieces of various games though, and have been following some news. Some assorted thoughts:
The O's are now on pace to win 91 games instead of 100, which is still fine. They've been outscored on the season 246-250, but they'...
