BALTIMORE – The first quarter of the season is over. It ended with the Orioles being swept for the first time this season and Freddy Garcia pitching poorly.
With just about a quarter of the season over, the Orioles continue to play well. Near the top of the American League East, the Orioles have proven that they can be consistent winners.
MINNEAPOLIS – Badly needing their starter to give them innings, Steve Johnson failed the Orioles on Saturday night. So badly did Johnson fail them that they optioned him to Norfolk.
