BALTIMORE — The Orioles’ July tailspin continued Tuesday with an 8-4 loss to the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards.
After closing June on a high note with a home sweep of the Yankees, the Orioles have now lost six of eight games since the calendar flipped to July. They primarily relied on their bats to carry them to 11 games over .500 at the end of June, when they stood alone in second place in the American League East.
Now they’re in third place and appear to be fading. In the past week, the team hasn’t pitched that well and the offense hasn’t met its own high standards.
