Roll On, Norfolkie, Roll On.
Whenever Jeremy Guthrie takes the mound, the Baltimore batters seem to take the day off.
That held true again Wednesday night when the Orioles managed just four hits in a 6-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
Guthrie is receiving just 3.3 runs per game, the sixth-lowest support in the American League. In his past 15 starts, the Orioles have scored 47 runs when he was in the game.
“We didn’t mount much offense,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That was the story of the game.”
Guthrie (5-15) yielded six runs on eight hits in seven innings. He leads the majors in losses.
“They were able to string together a couple of hits and then they got a big home run in the seventh,” Guthrie said. “I felt the same as last time (when he beat the Yankees 4-2 on Friday). I just didn’t get the same results. The homer was the most damaging in the seventh but I made more mistakes than that.
