Chris Davis calls Orioles’ mounting losses ’embarrassing’
The Baltimore Orioles’ historically bad season has resulted in frustration levels rising among players and fans, and at least one player has outright admitted embarrassment.
Baltimore tied a franchise record on Monday with loss No. 107 on the season (the 1988 Orioles also lost 107 games). With 12 games remaining, a nightmare of a season will soon be over, and the club can begin to focus on how return to winning ways.
Following Monday’s game, first baseman Chris Davis was asked about the 107th loss and said he felt frustration and embarrassment once the club passed the century mark for losses.
“It’s frustrating to say the least,” Davis told MASN Sports. “Once we hit 100, it was kind of like, I don’t know, I honestly didn’t have any words for it. It was embarrassing. It was frustrating. It’s one of those things you never want to be associated with, but at the same time, you’ve got to learn how to turn the page and start somewhere. Why not start now?”
The Orioles got off to an 8-26 start to the season, which put them on pace to lose 124 games. Baltimore won’t reach that number, but the 2018 season will still go down as one to forget around Baltimore.
