Orioles can’t hit a tricky Reid Detmers, drop series finale to Angels, 4-1

Coming into Sunday, everything was coming super easy to the 2024 Orioles in this opening series against the Los Angeles Angels. On Thursday, they delivered an 11-3 beatdown in Game 1 and yesterday, a 13-4 butt-whupping in Game 2.
