The Lost Weekend


Recommended Posts



I thought that it was bad when the Orioles were swept by the Houston Astros 2 weeks ago by scores of 2-0, 5-2, and 8-4, respectively.

That was bad, but it was not nearly as bad as what happened this weekend.


The Yankees outscored the Orioles by a composite score of 38-8 in the 3 games that they played. It was reminiscent of the "Boston Massacre" in 1978, when the Yankees swept the Red Sox in 4 games at Fenway Park in early September. In that series, the Yankees outscored the Red Sox by a score of 42-9 in those 4 games.

Jonathan Schoop hit a 2-run home run in the top of the 2nd inning on Friday evening, and it was all downhill for the Orioles after that. 


As a lifelong Oriole fan, this was very much a lost weekend for me.
