Congratulations, Baltimore Orioles! You lost another game last night. But, if you’re going to lose, at least you did it in historic fashion.
Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy couldn’t record a single out in the first and so was pulled, but not before giving up four home runs to the Kansas City Royals. Apparently, no starting pitcher has given up four home runs before recording an out.Embed from Getty Images
Well done, Orioles!
Oh, and the Reds won last night, so the Orioles are back to the being the worst team in baseball.
On April 29, the Baltimore Orioles won their last game, defeating the Detroit Tigers 5-3 at Camden Yards.
It was an unseasonably cool Sunday in Baltimore, the high just 56.
Somewhere in America, on that exact same day, in a clean stream of water, a mayfly was born. (The water must be clear and clean, mayflies hate polluted water.)
This is not that mayfly, but it is a mayfly.
Today, 10 days after the last Orioles win, that mayfly born that morning in April is long gone. But, this morning her great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson was born, somewhere in America in a clean stream of water.
Ten generations of mayflies have passed since the Orioles last win.
How many more?

Dear Baltimore Orioles,
Can you win one? Just one? That’s all I’m asking.
