MINNEAPOLIS -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter is always looking ahead.
And following his team's lethargic 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon at Target Field, Showalter’s major concern wasn’t his sputtering offense but instead an all-too-familiar short outing by a starting pitcher that made for another long afternoon for his bullpen.
“I’m trying to save the bullets,” Showalter said. “Fortunately we have a day off, but we’re going to go through a period here after the off day where those type of things are going to catch up with you. You just can’t have it. Every team in baseball is like that.”
