Orioles waste third straight quality start, swept in doubleheader by Astros with 5-2 loss

Could this all end any other way?

Like David Hess on Friday and Dylan Bundy earlier Saturday, Yefry Ramírez took the mound as one of the Orioles' last starters standing and turned in an outing that in normal circumstances could be worthy of a win.

Instead, Ramírez's longest major league start, and the first quality start of his career, ended up the same way as the ones that preceded it: an Orioles loss, 5-2 to the Houston Astros to complete a doubleheader sweep.

That sends the Orioles (46-115) into their season finale trying to avoid their 22nd series sweep.

That each of these three losses to the American League West...
