It seems like a few of the consistents for the Orioles have struggled in their last couple appearances.

The Orioles starters have allowed 23 runs in their past 5 starts, averaging just 5.1 innings pitched.

Daniel Cabrera, who was noted for his turn around at the beginning of the 2008 season has been responsible for 4 of those runs in 5 innings of work. His previous start was similar, 6 innings pitched and 6 earned runs. D-Cab has a 9.81 era in his past two starts.

Reliever George Sherrill has been consistently good for the O’s too. He got the win in Saturday’s comeback against the Pirates, but has blown saves in his past 2 appearances.

When’s the All-Star break?…hopefully having the day off will help these tired pitchers regain their command.
