Fry (1-7) failed to record a single out as he let up one run on one hit and was hit with the loss in the Orioles 6-4 defeat at the hands of the Royals on Sunday.
Fry came into the game in the seventh inning as a tactical move to face lefty Alex Gordon and hopefully prevent the Royals from scoring. He failed to do his job and allowed Gordon to drive Adalberto Mondesi home on a double to deep left-center field and was promptly removed from the game after one batter. Fry now sports a 4.83 ERA and a 48:23 K:BB ratio across 50.1 innings.
Fry allowed one hit during a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save against the Blue Jays on Saturday. He did not have a strikeout or a walk.
Shawn Armstong and Mychal Givens pitched earlier in the contest and Miguel Castro (illness) was unavailable Saturday, providing Fry with the chance to record his third save of the season. The 27-year-old has a 3.83 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB through 42.1 innings.
Fry struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to get the save in a 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday.
It's still a small sample size, but Fry has yielded just one run and two hits in 4.1 innings (2.08 ERA) since returning to the big leagues on June 26. This is his second save in three opportunities this year. He is 1-3 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in 34.2 overall.
Fry was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.
Josh Rogers (elbow) was sent to the IL in a corresponding move, allowing Fry to rejoin the Orioles after spending less than a week in the minors. Fry made one appearance during his time with the Tides, allowing four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three batters in one inning. In 32 appearances for the big club this season, the lefty owns a 4.75 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 22:15 K:BB in 30.1 innings.
Fry was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Fry allowed nine runs (six earned) on six hits and four walks over his last five outings (2.1 innings), so he'll head to the minors in favor of a fresh arm. Evan Phillips was also sent down, while Branden Kline and Tanner Scott were called up to fill out the bullpen.
Fry struck out one in three perfect innings of relief to record his second save of the season as the Orioles downed the Red Sox 10-3 in the nightcap of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Fry (0-2) took the loss Saturday, allowing a run-scoring walkoff double in the 11th inning. He also struck out a batter.

Fry recorded the final five outs of the game to pick up the save Sunday against the White Sox, allowing no runs while walking one and striking out four.
Fry was called on in an 8-4 ballgame, and he managed to slam the door without issue for his first save of the season. He figures to remain in a high-leverage role for the rest of the season, posting a 3.60 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 32 strikeouts and nine holds through 30 frames in 2018.
Fry was called up to the majors on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
A 17th-round pick back in 2013, Fry has yet to pitch in the major leagues. The lefty has a solid 3.47 ERA in 23.1 innings for Triple-A Norfolk this season.
Fry cleared waivers Sunday and was assigned to Triple-A Norfolk, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Fry was recently designated for assignment by the Orioles but went unclaimed. He'll stay with Norfolk, where he currently holds a 6.56 ERA over 23.1 innings of relief work.
Fry owns an unimpressive 5.75 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 12 combined relief appearances this season with Triple-A Tacoma and Norfolk.
The southpaw began the season with the Tacoma, but made just one appearance before being designated for assignment by the Mariners. Fry was signed and recalled by the Orioles in late April, but never toed the rubber in his two days with the club. The 24-year-old's minor-league numbers are a bit misleading. He's had three rough outings that have accouned for 11 of his 13 runs allowed. Regardless, Fry's inconsistency hasn't helped his chances of being recalled any time soon.
Fry was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Fry was sent back to Norfolk before making an appearance with the Orioles. A corresponding move hasn't been announced, though Joey Rickard (finger) could possibly be activated from the DL if his minor-league rehab double-header went off without a hitch Wednesday. Fry should slot back in to Norfolk's bullpen upon his arrival, and could eventually be recalled should the Orioles need another reliever.
Fry was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.
Fry has pitched 2.2 shutout innings at Norfolk this season, during which he's struck out four batters. Fry's usage with the big club will likely be limited, as he figures to slot in at the back of the Orioles' bullpen. In a corresponding move, Stefan Crichton was optioned to Norfolk.
Fry was acquired by the Orioles on Friday, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Three days after being designated for assignment by Seattle, Fry has a new home in the Orioles' organization. He will go on the 40-man roster, but it's uncertain if Baltimore has any plans to use him at the major-league level in the near future. While the lefty struggled in his first appearance of the season, he posted a 2.78 ERA and 10.6 K/9 over 55 innings at Triple-A Tacoma last year.
Fry was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The Mariners added Fry to the 40-man roster over the winter for Rule 5 protection, but the team decided it needed that spot for another player (Mike Freeman) just over a week into the season. Fry struggled in his first appearance of the year for Triple-A Tacoma, allowing four runs on six hits and a walk in two innings.
Fry was added to the Mariners' 40-man roster on Friday.
A 2.55 ERA in 55 inniings with Triple-A Tacoma was enough to convince the Mariners that some teams might think Fry was worth adding in the Rule 5 draft, so they chose to protect him by adding him to the 40-man roster. His 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings is an encouraging sign as far as stuff goes, but 5.1 walks per nine could be a red flag.
