The Orioles’ road woes continued with a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians June 14.
Baltimore has now lost a franchise-record 16 consecutive games away from Camden Yards, but it’s not even the longest losing streak on the road this season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost 20 consecutive games on the road. The Rangers also had a 16-game road losing streak from May 10 to June 11.
The New York Mets own the MLB record with 22 straight road losses in 1963.
The Orioles did get an encouraging performance from Dean Kremer against the Indians. Kremer, who was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk before the game, allowed four runs (three earned) with four hits in 5.1 innings.
Kremer still took the loss and fell to 0-6 but was hampered by a pair of errors.
“I thought Dean threw the ball great,” said manager Brandon Hyde, who was ejected in the first inning. “I was really encouraged by his start. No walks. We misplay a ball in the first and don’t help him out there in that first inning, but to be able to settle down, after all that stuff happened to him and go four scoreless into the sixth inning.
“Throwing strikes, thought he had a good curveball tonight, liked the changeup and I liked the way he threw strikes. So he gave us an opportunity to win. The bottom line is we just didn’t play defense and you’ve got to play defense in the big leagues to win and we made numerous plays that hurt us tonight. Or didn’t make.”
