Orioles offense: Just the stats, ma'am (continued)
It's a team slump, but it's also a slump involving several key individuals. Read and continue to weep:
Brian’s in a 2-for-26 slump that has dropped batting average to season-low .279. He hasn’t walked in seven games; hasn’t stolen a base since May 19, a span of 18 games; hasn’t even attempted to steal a base in 17 games; hasn’t scored a run in eight straight games; has gone 39 at-bats without an extra-base hit.
On second thought, maybe there is crying in baseball.
Nick’s .286 average is lowest it has been all season. He’s hitting .210 since May 12. In last 23 games, he has gone hitless 10 times. He went hitless just twice in first 23 games. He hasn’t hit homer in 69 at-bats, and has just one homer in last 110 at-bats. He hasn’t scored a run or driven in a run in eight straight games and has only two walks over his last 19 games.
He’s 4 for his last 23 with no extra-base hits in his last 30 at-bats. He hasn’t homered in his last 40 at-bats, and has just one homer over his last 80 at-bats. Has more caught stealings (2) than RBIs (1) over his last 10 games.
Melvin hasn’t homered since May 7, a span of 25 games for him, and 97 at-bats. Hasn’t driven in a run in 20 games. He has only three extra-base hits (all doubles) over his past 18 games.
Matt is 2 for his last 21. He has scored just one run in eight games and is still without his first major league RBI. He has at least one strikeout in five of his eight starts.
Sorry, but it’s all true.
