Tuesday’s loss to the Oakland A’s and rookie Chris Bassitt was one of those forgettable, blah games that happen occasionally in a long season.
If you didn’t stay up for it, well, you didn’t miss much.
The Orioles offense didn’t touch Bassitt, and though Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez allowed just three runs, he wasn’t crisp throughout. He was fine, I suppose, if the Orioles would have scored some runs.
Gonzalez’s season ERA now sits at 4.32; his career ERA heading into the year was 3.45.
The Orioles can salvage this series in Oakland, where they are 8-20 since the beginning of the 2008 season, with a win Wednesday...
