Yeah lack of heart 

On point Bleeder, LOL.   Anyone think still this team hasn't quit on Buck???   Batting Davis lead-off and running Tilly out there helped cut the heart out of this team early.

Choking can only happen in meaningful games.

Duquette’s powerful offense scored 0 runs in 12 innings last nite. It’s exciting to see what they have in store for us this evening.

Barring a miracle, in a few minutes the Orioles will be 19-47 on the season.  They ended last season by going 4-19.

Sum those numbers up, and they're 23-66 in their last 89 games.

That's brutal.  Just brutal.

Last time the O's lost 100 was 1988.

 

At this point "only" 100 would be merciful.

They're going to have to go 44-52 the rest of the way to avoid 100.  I don't see that happening.

Another lifeless, listless performance by the one-dimensional offense. A thing of beauty.

Zero chance. They'll be lucky to win 50.

And now Bleier, one of the few bright spots on this team, is down with what is being called a lat injury.

The hits just keep coming. . .Or not.

19-48 vs 18-49.

From Steve Melewski of MASN Sports (add an 0-for-7 to each total after today's game)

Updating the RISP stat: At times this year the O’s struggles to score runs has been mirrored by their struggles to hit with runners in scoring position. Of course, the two are somewhat related. For the second night in a row they stranded 13 runners and went 2-for-13 with RISP last night.

The numbers in recent games is really bad in this regard -

* Over the last six games, the Orioles are 3-for-48 (.063) with RISP.
* Over the last 13 games, the Orioles are 8-for-80 (.100) with RISP.
* Over the last 25 games, the Orioles are 23-for-162 (.142) with RISP.

The 2017 Orioles hit .287 with RISP to rank second in the AL to Houston at .294. But this year’s club is batting .216 in this stat to rank 13th in the AL.

What would one expect when for years and years the coaching staff / front office has seemed to place NO VALUE on batting average, speed, situational hitting, OBP, doubles, contact, etc... and has instead stockpiled an offense of lottery tickets whose entire offensive game relies on big swings, launch angle, and the ball actually clearing the outfield wall... in order for the batter to get on base?  Buck and Dan have basically written their own self-fulfilling prophecy here.

Just over 54,000 total attendance for the three game series. Probably three quarters of them were Red Sox fans.

The other night one of the announcers said the Orioles have hit 17 straight solo home runs.  The last home run with a runner on base was sometime in May.
