Kansas City, Mo. -- When the media were allowed into the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium last night, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo's voice had lowered considerably, but his frustration level, from what he perceived as uninterested and uninspired play from his team, hadn't.

Perlozzo ripped the Orioles in a short but loud post-game meeting after a 7-5 loss to the Kansas City Royals, which represented easily one of his team's poorest efforts of the season. In a tone loud enough where it was audible to reporters waiting several yards outside the closed clubhouse doors, Perlozzo questioned his team's effort and concentration.
