Friday’s O’s Links: Wade Miley? More Like Weird Miley!

Yesterday’s make-up game with the Gnats saw their JV beat our JV in a boring lopsided affair. Alec Asher threw 41 pitches in the damn first inning as Washington took a 4-0 lead, and the Birds bats’ made Joe Ross look like Max Scherzer.

The O’s now head off on a seven-game road trip to the Bronx and the south side of Chicago. They’re gonna need to start winning some games away from the Yard at some point (they were 3-12 on the road in May) if they want to stay in this thing. Now would be a good time to start.
