Feldman the road warrior

Quick, who are the only two AL pitchers with more wins than Texas righty Scott Feldman?

You mean there are only two?

CC Sabathia has 16 wins, Justin Verlander 15 and Feldman joins two others for third in the AL with 14 wins.

The Orioles are finding out about him tonight as he has pitched five shutout innings allowing just two hits so far and has a 4-0 lead. No Oriole has reached as far as second base yet tonight.

Over his last three starts, he has now thrown 17 2/3 consecutive scoreless frames.

Feldman has been remarkable on the road this year with a mark of 10-1, 2.92 in 13 road games. He has won six straight road decisions. If he gets seven tonight, he'll be the first
Texas hurler to win seven in a row on the road since Bobby Witt in 1990.

In addiiton to maybe earning the title "best pitcher no one has heard of" he is 11th in the AL in ERA and his win percentage (14-4, .778) is second best in the AL.

Tonight is his 50th career start.
