The team had a three-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays where the guys saw a 13-6 loss, a 9-7 loss and a 10-1 loss.
One of the main trends for the O’s in seeing some losing results has been the pitching, as the team has allowed 83 runs and 23 homers during this stretch.
Now the O’s will head south on the beltway for a three-game set against the Washington Nationals.
It will be a gem of a pitching performance for anyone who will be able to attend the game at Nationals Park tonight (Friday) as Jorge Lopez takes on the returning Stephen Strasburg for the Nationals.
Lopez has pitched solidly for the Orioles, but was hit hard in his last outing, as he allowed five runs in two innings against the Yankees on Saturday. As for Strasburg, this will be the first time in over a month he will be able to make a start for the Nationals.
