Orioles lose again, now 20 1/2 games out of fourth place

At this point, I see no point in recapping every Orioles' loss because they are all pretty much the same. Starter puts team in the hole early, offense does nothing until scoring a couple of runs late and Orioles lose again. Just substitute the names.

So I'll include just this one statistic after the 8-2 loss, the Orioles' 11th straight against the Toronto Blue Jays to start the season:

The Orioles are now 20 ½ games behind the Blue Jays for fourth place in the American League East. Only two other teams in baseball – the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Arizona Diamondbacks – entered yesterday more than 20 games out of first place.

That's sad, very sad.
