The Baltimore Orioles on Saturday ended up losing to the Kansas City Royals in a close contest, 4-3, at Camden Yards. It was a hard fought game by the Birds; however, in the final third of the contest, the bullpen could not hold a 3-2 lead, mistakes, plus an inability to get runners on base and advance them in the final frame cost the Orioles a chance to win their 30th game of the season. The Royals held with their own with the Orioles, and at the end of the day, Eric Hosmer – who has been struggling this year as a high-profile youngster – did his job.
