How the Orioles built the majors

The 1931 Philadelphia Phillies were not an especially compelling baseball team

They had a record of 66-88-1 in the franchise’s last of 14 straight losing seasons

The 1930 Phillies posted an aggregate of 6.70 Time, the most terrible in American and National League history

Since procured runs turned into an authority detail in 1913, no group has worked on its ERA over time by more

In the two full seasons before this one, the Orioles had their two most awful group ERAs since showing up in Baltimore in 1954

“We’ve had a couple of really difficult pitching years,” manager Brandon Hyde said, “and we’re making big strides.”
