Ubaldo Jiménez struggles, Orioles leave go-ahead run on base in 7-6 loss to Mariners

The key to Ubaldo Jiménez’s second-half turnaround had been his ability to harness his command, but on Wednesday afternoon the Orioles right-hander’s control escaped him in an untimely manner in the team’s 7-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. Jiménez lasted just 4 1/3 innings and the team’s ninth-inning comeback fell just short.

The Orioles returned from the West Coast with a disappointing 4-6 record on their 10-day, 10-game trip to Anaheim, Oakland and Seattle, dropping two of three on their last stop in the Pacific Northwest.

They are now 59-62, back at three games under .500 for the first time...
