A look at some impressive pitching statistics

The Orioles and their fans could get used to pitching like this. Here are some updated O's pitching stats: * The Orioles have a 1.33 ERA over their last three games, allowing just eight hits in 27 innings. The O's have allowed three or fewer hits for three consecutive games for the first time since July 17-19, 1992. The team record is four straight games ... read more

Chris Tillman with a gem as Orioles beat White Sox

Chris Tillman is pretty much cranking out strong outing after strong outing these days. His latest stellar effort came tonight as he pitched the Orioles past the Chicago White Sox 5-1 at U.S. Cellular Field. Tillman went eight innings and Tommy Hunter pitched the ninth. The duo combined to hold Chicago to three hits. It's the third straight game where Orioles pitching has allowed three ... read more

O's game blog: Chris Tillman looks for win No. 10 at Chicago

Fresh off a win over ace Chris Sale, the Orioles look for a second straight win in Chicago tonight. A win in one of the next two games will give the Orioles their ninth series victory in their last 10 series. Nick Markakis went 2-for-3 against Sale last night. He joined Josh Hamilton (June 7), Gregor Blanco (June 18) and Alex Gordon (July 21) as ... read more

As his bat begins to heat up again, Pearce talks about O's team chemistry

Baseball can be a funny game. A hitter can go from struggling badly to hot in just a few games and with just a few swings. That seems to be happening right now to Steve Pearce. In the last two games his bat looks like it is heating up. He has gone 5-for-10 with three doubles, a homer and two RBIs. Before that he went ... read more

Orioles added to their hit list against top pitchers last night

This is an impressive stat for the Orioles and it bodes well for them should they still be playing in October: They are now 10-5 in games when they face a starting pitcher who is currently in the American League top 10 in ERA. The latest win came last night. They pinned a loss on Chris Sale. They are 2-0 this year when Sale has ... read more

O's use solid pitching, the longball and strong defense to beat Sale and the White Sox

Get one solid starting pitching performance. Mix in two homers against Chris Sale. Throw in one potential game-saving catch. And then add a late five-run rally to blown open a one-run game. Where to start with this impressive 8-2 Orioles win over the Chicago White Sox to start a three-game series? Bud Norris took a one-hitter and 3-0 lead to the last of the seventh, ... read more

O's game blog: A look at the challenge of facing Chris Sale

As the Orioles face Chris Sale (10-2, 2.01 ERA), one of baseball's best pitchers tonight, maybe they will be encouraged by how they did against him on June 23. Sale has held American League batters to a .196 batting average this season. But that night, the Orioles had 11 hits off Sale in six innings and batted .423 against him. They beat the White Sox ... read more

A look at how the Orioles are turning homers into wins

How important are home runs to the Orioles? Well, when they hit more homers than their opponent this year they are 45-6, and that is an .882 winning percentage. They are perfect, 14-0 in the second half, when out-homering the opposition. That stat is pretty amazing and it was brought to my attention when I first saw it on a graphic during a MASN telecast ... read more
