On Friday evening Baltimore fell short 9-1 to Boston.
As the Orioles continued to struggle, Trey Mancini was the only thing that stayed constant.
The Orioles have extended the record and are now one of the only two teams to have allowed at least 250 home runs in a season.
SP Aaron Brooks had three poor innings. Starting with his fastball being tagged by Mookie Betts, followed by the changeup hit by Rafael Devers for an RBI double and the slider was smoked out at about 102 mph by J.D. Martinez.
In the top of the 3rd, OF Mancini extended his hitting streak to 10 games when he doubled on a line drive to right fielder Mookie Betts and Johnathan Viller scored tying the score 1-1. He went 1-for-3 with an RBI.
Following in the third, 1B Chris Davis had a fly ball that barely went anywhere.
RHP Thomas Eshelman closed the final two innings against Boston. He allowed three runs on three hits and a walk, finishing with a 6.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 36 innings this season. The Orioles optioned him to Triple-A-Norfolk for a fresh arm.
OF Dwight Smith Jr. has been out all month with a strained left calf. Before the start of the game on Friday Smith did some running in the outfield and is expected to be ready for a rehab assignment soon.
OF DJ Stewart suffered a concussion earlier this month and has been sidelined for a week and a half.
OF Dwight Smith Jr.: Calf, Expected tp return in late August
RP Josh Rogers: Elbow, Out indefinitely
SP Alex Cobb: Back, Out until 2020
