Orioles' untimely skid severely damages their playing hopes

BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles were right in the middle of the AL playoff race until plummeting into an inexplicable nosedive that negated everything they accomplished over the first 4 1/2 months of the season.

Baltimore was 62-57 and a trailed Los Angeles by a half-game for the second wild-card spot on Aug. 19. Since that time, the defending AL East champions have dropped 12 of 14 to fall behind five teams in the hunt of the league's final playoff spot.

"You go through stretches like that in baseball," center fielder Adam Jones said. "It's just not good to get into them in August leading into September."
