Baltimore Bats Struggle - Twins take 3 of 4

Earl Weaver demands changes with struggling
Baltimore fans continue to watch their team struggle as they drop 3 of 4 with the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles team batting average continues to plummet to the bottom of the league (.218) as they were outscored 13-8 in the series. Aging veterans like Frank Robinson (.257 avg 3HR) and Brooks Robinson (.262 avg 12 HR) were reported to have had a closed door meeting with head skipper Earl Weaver, after the series, to try and motivate the team down the stretch run.
Weaver was quoted after the series, "A manager's job is simple. For one hundred sixty-two games you try not to screw up all that smart stuff your organization did last December." However, the cagey manager is finding it hard to live up to those prophetic words as his ball club now sits at 49-62 on the season. Weaver finished the interview by stating, "We're so bad right now that for us back-to-back home runs means one today and another one tomorrow."

Baltimore will see if they can turn their luck around as they will play host, in an upcoming weekend series, with California. The Twins, who sit at 3rd place in the division (62-48) travel to New York to take on the Bronx Bombers.
