According to Elias Sports Bureau, Juan Samuel suffered the second-worst loss for a manager in his first game dating back to 1900. Milwaukee’s Buck Rodgers lost, 15-2, to the Minnesota Twins in 1980.
The Orioles are 15-40 this season. The 1988 team was 13-42 after 55 games. The 1962 Mets were 16-39 on their way to a 40-120 record, the worst in the modern era.
The Orioles remain the only team in the majors without a home run from a first baseman. (Garrett Atkins hit one while serving as the designated hitter).
They’re one of three teams (along with Texas and the Dodgers) without a homer from a shortstop.
