The three consecutive shutouts at the end of the week dropped the Orioles to 23rd in the majors in combined batting average (.249). The O’s scored 13 runs in the Nationals series and staged late-inning comebacks in two of those games, but overall averaged barely two runs a game for the week and no regular players had a batting average higher than .238 for the week. It might not be so galling if the the first two shutouts had not come at the hands of journeyman Rich Hill on Friday and a start by seven-reliever committee on Saturday.
