I guess we learned one lesson from the first inning tonight at Fenway Park: Never think it can’t get worse.
The Orioles entered tonight as a team that had lost nine of the last 10 games and looked that bad and worse in an awful bottom of the first inning tonight.
They pitched poorly and fielded worse as Boston batted 13 men, knocked Zach Britton out of the game after 2/3 of an inning and took an 8-0 lead.
There was one error scored in the inning, but clearly was at least one more that should have been ruled an error on a misplay by Robert Andino. Felix Pie looked bad trying to dive for a ball in left field and the Orioles basically looked over-matched, disinterested and awful.
I think they owe their fans a couple of hours of spirited play the rest of this night and weekend.
I would say it can’t get worse...
