Orioles Fall To 13-16 In One-Run Games

Frustrated memeToto, I have a feeling we’re not in 2012 anymore.

On Wednesday night, the Orioles dropped their second straight one-run game to the Kansas City Royals. With the 4-3 loss, Baltimore fell to 13-16 in one-run games on the season. A year ago, the O’s finished 29-9 in games decided by one-run.

What a difference a year makes.

Despite their 47-51 overall record, the Royals are 19-17 in one-run games. Baltimore falls to 3-3 on the season against Kansas City and look to split their four-game set with a win in the finale tonight.

    That’s 19-17 in 1-run games for KC, if you’re looking for a real outlier, how about Oakland at 21-12 thanks in large part to Balfour’s great and lucky season, although he did blow one yesterday (on a home run! who didn’t see that one coming)

    Where’d the O’s offense go? I think they left it at the all star game! CD looks like he is still at the home run derby- swing and a miss with no dingers and 9 K’s since the break. Same deal with AJ, JJ and Manny, few clutch hits since the break. Two nights ago with the tying run on third and no outs in the ninth and the meat of the order- CD, JJ and Hank without putting a ball in play to score was sad. Last night, more of the same, get the lead off guy on almost every inning and then nothing. Maybe next year the O’s should pass on the all star festivities and take the rest?
