Baltimore Orioles vs Toronto Blue Jays [W-W-L] 




And we have our first mystery starter - I'm all for Gausman but will probably be who ever is in the line in AAA for that date

Re: Baltimore Orioles vs Toronto Blue Jays [?-?-?] 


Stats from STATS:

  1. Baltimore won 11 of its 18 games against the Blue Jays last season scoring 89 total runs in the process, the Orioles third highest scoring output against any team in 2012.
  2. Baltimore has outscored its opponents by 12 runs in the first two innings this season, the third best differential in the majors.
  3. The Blue Jays on the other hand have been outscored by 13 runs in the first two innings this season, tied for the second worst in the MLB.
  4. Chris Davis, who is currently hitting .403 this season, looks to become just the fifth different Oriole to finish the month of April with a .400+ batting average since the team moved to Baltimore back in 1954.
  5. Melky Cabrera is hitting .319 when the bases are empty in 2013 but is just 6-for-28 (.214) with runners on. Cabrera has also recorded a .321 batting average against RHP while going 3-for-19 against lefties.
  6. The Blue Jays are averaging 6.13 runs per game in their eight wins this season while scoring just 2.09 runs per contest in their 11 losses, the fifth largest differential in the AL.

Freddy Garcia is scheduled to pitch for the Tides tomorrow night. If he gets scratched, we'll have our answer to Wednesday's starter.

Gausman has had 2 shaky starts. Garcia is not on the 40 man roster. Britton is pitching well for the Tides but are they showcasing him for a trade by keeping him in AAA? When did Home Run Tommy last pitch and how many innings?

Steve Johnson and TJ MacFarland could be options.

Or maybe Josh Stinson, the April waiver claim who has a 0.77 ERA in two starts in Norfolk.

Homerun Tommy pitched 3 innings Saturday night and picked up a save against LAD.

Britton has the same problem as Arrieta, albeit not as bad. Pitches good in AAA. Gets called up and has some stuff. But throws too many pitches. Last year he averaged almost 18 pitches an inning.  That just isn't going to cut it. The O's have got to find some starters that can consistently give them 7 innings.  This 5 innings stuff is going to kill the bullpen.

I dream of 1966, 1970, and 1983. I would also take 1969, 1971, and 1979. But 1973, 1974, 1996, 1997, and 2012 were okay. Toss in 1960, 1968, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1989, and 1994 too.

well 6th inning score tied 0-0 cant complain about the pitching, or the defense for that matter as machado makes a nice bear handed play to throw out the baserunner

if tillman can get through the 7th under 100 pitches, do you let him pitch the 8th?

EDIT:well he just gave up a 2 out single unless he gets the batter out in less than 3 pitches he'll be at 100

Tillman out of the game now, 6.2 gutsy innings pitched

As good as Tillman pitched, the O's still are the only team in MLB to not have a starter go at least 7 innings. At least O'day got out of the inning with no more damage.

Come on bats get something going.

Bottom of the eighth ... Top of the order ... Orioles really need to put something together right now.

RE: Baltimore Orioles vs Toronto Blue Jays [?-?-?] 


nice AB by Nick to secure the win. Two quick called strikes then he goes with the pitch and serves it to left field for the 2-1 win. Good to see Casilla hustling on that routine grounder in the 9th. Thats WHY you hustle...never know when the infielders will mess up. Kept the game alive.
O's now 3-3 in one run games. Red Sox win and looks like Yanks may lose.
Good to see the O's going after teams in their division.

I was really worried that the game was headed for extra innings when the count went to 0-2 on Markakis but he found a way to poke the ball somewhere and deliver the win. Very tough pitcher's duel with Tillman looking very good until the seventh when he just couldn't get that final out. The entire series might just play out in similar fashion.

With R.A. Dickey pitching injured, the O's may be able to light him up early and get to the bull pen.
