    Can the Baltimore Orioles break a 93 year old record?

    Even with the victory, the Orioles extended their American League record in allowing five or more runs in 17 consecutive games. It's also the second-longest streak in the majors over the past 100 years.

    They all-time MLB record is 20 games by the 1924 Phillies.

    Can they do it? They get Cleveland again tonight and the O's starting pitcher has a 6.60 ERA.

    Maybe Bronson could help them out?

    Indians just scored 2 in the 9th to go up 5-0, so the streak continues.

    Will they break the record today?

    The Orioles, at the other end of the spectrum of momentum, found a more dubious piece of history, becoming the first time since the 1924 Philadelphia Phillies to allow at least five runs in 20 straight games.

    Starter Ubaldo Jimenez couldn't make it out of the third inning, making the Orioles use relievers Alec Asher (49 pitches) and Miguel Castro (50) so long that they'll need to make a roster move before Saturday's game.

    "We have to pitch better. It is what it is," manager Buck Showalter said. "The help's going to come from within. We've got to get back in step. We have to create some rhythm for the offense and the defense. I don't like to hang it around one phase of it, but it starts to string some good starts together."

    Asked if he'd need a fresh arm called up for Saturday's game, Showalter said, "At least one, for sure." He'll turn to RHP Dylan Bundy, who has a solid 7-6 record and 3.72 ERA, but he gave up six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings in his last outing.

    Bundy is 0-1 with 6.06 ERA in four games -- three starts -- versus the Rays. He got a no-decision against them on April 26 when he allowed two runs and four hits in 6 1/3 innings of a 5-4 Baltimore win.

    The Rays will get another boost to their surging offense as catcher Wilson Ramos will be reinstated from the disabled list to make his season debut after missing the entire season recovering from a torn ACL suffered last year. Ramos would add another power bat to their lineup, with Derek Norris being designated for assignment to make room for him.
