So the O's are not very good right now

I was considering writing something demonstrating just how bad the Orioles have been lately, but Dan Connolly went ahead and did just that this morning with a few numbers during the O's skid. Here they are:
6-17 – That’s the Orioles’ record in their last 23 games.

5.80 – The Orioles’ staff ERA in those 23 games.

1 – How many games the Orioles’ starter has lasted seven or more innings in their past 22 contests.

6.85 – That’s the Orioles’ starters ERA in those 22 games.


18 – The number of errors the Orioles have committed during the 6-17 skid.

14 – The number of consecutive games in which the Orioles have allowed four or more runs. That’s the worst for any team this season and longest for Orioles since 2001.

63-29 – The combined scores of the Orioles’ last nine games (eight losses). Yes, in case there was any doubt, they scored the 29.
The O's, now 36-48, also currently have the second-worst run differential (-80) in the majors. The only team they trail in that category is the Astros (-92).

And as if things couldn't get any worse, after losing five of six in Atlanta and Texas, the O's head to Boston to face the Red Sox for a four-game series right before the All-Star break (which can't come soon enough).
