Orioles snap 19-game skid with 10-6 win over Angels

After 19 consecutive losses, the Baltimore Orioles were ready to try just about anything.

Newcomer Chris Ellis found that out while preparing to make his first big league start.

“I was sitting at my locker, kind of just going over the lineup for the day, and I saw Trey Mancini walking though there with a bunch of sage. Everybody was getting a whiff of it,” Ellis said. “Maybe we’ll have to start doing that before every game.”

The Orioles finally stopped their slide Wednesday night, rallying to beat Los Angeles 10-6 after a shaky start by Shohei Ohtani left the Angels’ bullpen with too much to do…


The Orioles were two losses shy of the American League record for the longest skid — which they set themselves in 1988 when they started 0-21.

“The clubhouse is loud right now. There’s a lot of people that are very excited, relieved,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “It’s good to hear our guys feel good about the game they just played.”

As frustrating as this Angels season has been (and it feels like it's been the same one since 2015), there are still some bright, hopeful spots. Brandon Marsh has looked much better lately and hit his first home run today! And then the Angels bullpen craps the bed against a terrible Orioles team.

Why can't we have nice things? Nope, that's not the right question. Why do we waste our nice things?

15,867 in attendance, which seems a bit light for an Ohtani start, but maybe not bad for a team that lost 19 straight.

Not just a win, but a really good win, the kind of game you've gotten used to the Orioles just giving up on halfway through, and instead they battle back and make the Angels bullpen pay for their lapses. And honestly, more than the big hit by Hays, what I really liked was Ryan Mountcastle working a walk in a 12-pitch AB with the Orioles already up 4 in the 8th; that's how players who are trying to win games play, you love to see it.

I guess this is how the Angels lost today.
