Things had worked out well to that point, with a league-best 22-10 record. Shortly thereafter, that began to bite them. In the ensuring three weeks, they added nine pitchers for 18 games, even with three days off, and they went into a pitching funk that would border on historic. Britton was back on the disabled list, and the only constants were Brad Brach, Darren O'Day and Mychal Givens. By May 17, they were back to a seven-man bullpen and a shorter bench without Gentry, which lightened the options on that front. But there was plenty of churn outside those three. Everyone else churned through the three remaining bullpen spots. The Orioles ended the month 27-24, just three games above .500.
