Another loss tonight at Toronto for the Orioles would make 16 straight losses at Rogers Centre since they last won there Aug. 7, 2009.
It would also set a franchise record for most consecutive road losses against one club. Believe it or not, the Orioles have three times lost 15 straight on the road versus an opponent. Here are the two others.
* 15 straight losses at Seattle from June 2, 1999 to May 24, 2002.
* 15 straight losses at Cleveland from April 30, 1955 to July 27, 1956.
On the mound, Jake Arrieta could pick up his ninth win of the year tonight. Last year, Jeremy Guthrie became the Orioles’ first nine-game winner and that was Sept. 4.The last O’s nine-game winner before the end of June was Kris Benson, who got No. 9 on June 28, 2006.
Arrieta could tie Boston’s Jon Lester for the American League wins lead if he gets one tonight in Toronto. In two career starts against the Jays, he is 2-0 with an ERA of 2.25.
