The Birds lost yet another series, falling 8-1 to the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday afternoon.
Jeremy Guthrie lost his 17th game of the season, giving up seven runs on seven hits and four walks in just five innings. Only three of the runs were earned, thanks to a fielding error by Mark Reynolds in the third inning.
Reynolds, playing third base, committed two errors in the game and continues to lead the league with 26 errors this season. It may be time to put Reynolds at first base permanently...
The O's managed just four hits; Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run.
