KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo repeated the old baseball adage before last night's game. "A post-game speech is only as good as your starting pitcher the following day," Perlozzo said with a wry smile.

If Perlozzo hadn't been so overcome with frustration Tuesday night, if he hadn't felt his team needed a tongue-lashing in the worst way, he may have waited to deliver a stern lecture the night before Erik Bedard pitched rather than Adam Loewen.

O's@Royals Tonight, 8:10, Ch. 54, 1090 AM Starters: Orioles' Rodrigo Lopez (6-11, 6.73) vs. Royals' Jimmy Gobble (3-3, 4.88)
