Bad day

You know you're in trouble when this:

5IP, 9H, 6R, 6ER

is your best pitching line from the box score.

The only positive thing the O's can take from this game is that it only counts for one in the 'L' column.

Special mention should go to the unfortunate Brian Burres, who managed to give up 8 earned runs in 2/3 of an inning, and to Wes Littleton, who was the recipient of the game's most bizarre stat: a save, with a 27-run lead. (For the explanation, see point 3 of rule 10.19 here).

Strange days, indeed...
