Guess that's why they call them the O's
It would be simple enough to chalk up this latest offensive disappearing act to the fine command of Mariners starter Cliff Lee, but we're way beyond any individual performance at this point.
Going into tonight's game, the Orioles had scored two runs or fewer in 15 of their first 32 games, and they appear ready to make it 16 of 33.
Damning offensive stat: Since the Orioles scored their seventh run in Saturday's surprising victory over Francisco Liriano and the Twins, they have scored just one run on 13 hits over 25 innings entering the seventh inning tonight.
Instant update: The O's finally snapped a scoreless streak of 19 2/3 innings with a run in the bottom of the seventh.
