Silver Lining from these west coast losses

And maybe the starters are learning something from each other that they can sustain. But the HR or nothing offense (we knew that going in this spring) is letting them down big time (understatement of the year).

Yeah, I hate this offensive strategy HR not scoring

But we also are not a good base running team either.

This offense is just so frustrating

One of the most ridiculous myths in baseball is "pitching is 90% of the game." Oh really? The team had an ERA of 4.85 in June and went 19-9. Meanwhile, since the all-star break, the team has a 3.45 ERA and is 12-14. In my observation over the last several years, the Orioles tend to win if they are hitting well, even when the pitching is struggling, and conversely when the hitters are slumping they tend to lose even if the pitching has been pretty good.

Officially, Dylan Bundy's 5.67 innings of 1-run ball last night WAS NOT a quality start.

Essentially, it was.

It's a pretty arbitrary stat. I'd rather he got a win, which he did, because you only get one if the team won the game.

Yes, indeed.

A silver lining is that the Orioles are getting much improved performances from their starting pitchers on this West Coast swing ........ quality start, or no quality start.
