To be fair, Adam Jones and Robert Andino did OK, and Nolan Reimold had one hit. Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless inning, too.
Apparently, Dave Trembley was freakin' Nostradmus (video in new window) before the game against the Oakland Athletics. From his interview with MASN after today's disaster:
We said before the game the key was for (Rich) Hill to get out of the first inning.
Gee, ya THINK, Dave?
On the bright side, there were no hit and run plays, no bad baserunning, and no caught stealings. Then again, having only 7 baserunners, with 2 at a time only once, will do that.
I won't detail the trials and travails of our lineup. They blow, I think they know it, and Adam Jones isn't going to win games by himself.
A game like this, where a team surrenders only TWO hits, and is down 3-0 before the beer vendors have gone through their first case, is almost a fitting way to end a road trip that has seen the Orioles score just 10 runs in 6 games (and 4 of those came in ONE game) .
The Orioles host the Mariners Tuesday at 7:05. May God have mercy on their souls.
EDIT: Thanks to fishoutawata for the inspiration for the headline.
