Remember that test I was talking about in the last entry?

They failed.

The Orioles won game 1 of a 3 game series with the Rays, putting them in position to get back to .500. But they lost the second game -- after battling back down 3-0 against David Price and scoring the go-ahead run in the bottom of the 8th. But they gave that lead right back in the top of the 9th, thanks to thanks to a Felix Pie dropped flyball (it was a tough play to his credit) and another shaky Kevin Gregg outing that resulted in the blown save. The offense, as its prone to do in extra innings, disappeared.

What's happened since then? Take a guess.

The O's lost their next 3 in a row and they're currently on a 4 game losing streak. They've also lost 16 in a row in Toronto, who is going for a sweep of the Orioles today.

So we saw this coming. Still doesn't make it any easier to take, though.
