This is getting ridiculous..

It just keeps happening; the same old story...the O's lost to the Indians 7-1 last night at Camden Yards. The Birds are now 34-35 at home, the first time they've had a losing record at home since Opening Day (if I remember correctly).

Once again, the O's were able to score just a single run off six hits, and again, the opposing teams' starter went eight strong innings.

Chris Waters, the O's starter, allowed five runs in just under six innings, and that was more than enough for Cleveland.

Aubrey Huff drove in the O's lone the ninth inning. Melvin Mora was out of the lineup, and now Jeremy Guthrie is doubting he'll be able to start on Saturday. On the plus side, closer George Sherrill may return on Friday (as if the O's have had a save opportunity lately).

The Orioles (64-80) are now proving the experts right...they need to win just one more game this season to prove them wrong (the pre-season prediction was that the O's would finish 64-98).
