I had so little faith in Steve Trachsel that I didn't even bother to watch the game. Trax was indeed awful, giving up 9 runs while only getting 5 outs. The bullpen held the Rays down OK (6.1 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 4 BB, 5 K) but this O's offense - especially with Roberts and Markakis on the bench - is not designed for these kind of comebacks. The losing streak went to four as the O's lost 11-4. Daniel Cabrera needs to be a stopper tomorrow. We all knew that there would be days like this - I am under no illusion that this is a contending team. Still, a few less blow-outs would be nice.
