Roberts a little better
The Orioles lost again tonight, this time by a 4-2 score to the Oakland A's. They also lost another player to the disabled list as outfielder Felix Pie, who had been one of the few guys swinging a decent bat, joined Brian Roberts, Michael Gonzalez and Koji Uehara on the DL.
About the only piece of good news was the Roberts, a couple of days removed from getting his second epidural to ease the discomfort from the herniated disk in his back, had a positive appointment with back specialist Dr. Lee Riley.
"There is some improvement," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "He will go back for a follow-up on Monday and see where he's at."
