The Orioles lost again, are you shocked?

Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! Have you had a restful weekend so far? The Orioles haven’t really. They’ve have been doing a lot of losing lately, including the last two games against the Red Sox in Boston.

Two good things did come out of last night’s game. First, the major league debut of Hunter Harvey. Harvey pitched the eighth inning of last night’s 4-0 loss and did you guys know he can throw 100 miles per hour? After so many injuries it was starting to feel like Harvey would never get this chance. You can read about Harvey’s debut and the rest of the game in my recap from last night.

The other good thing that happened yesterday was when we all learned about an awesome young Red Sox fan. Yes, they exist! You can also read about him in my recap, or in the first link below.

Nine-year-old Red Sox fan Henry Frasca wrote Davis a letter on the day he ended his 0-for-54 hitless streak. This story is very touching and I highly recommend watching the video.

The most exciting thing last night's loss was the debut of Hunter Harvey. It's been a long time coming for Harvey. I'm happy for him!

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have two Orioles birthday buddies. Josh Rupe pitched in nine games for the 2011 Orioles and turns 37 years old today. And Bob Kennedy had a 16-year big league career included two seasons with the Orioles, 1954-55. Kennedy passed away in 2005.

On this day in 1989, Cal Ripken played in his 1,208th consecutive game. That put him in third place all time for consecutive games played, passing Steve Garvey.
