Kevin Gausman


3.45 (1.22/.250)

54K / 15BB, 10HR

QS: 5


Gausman has been better in the last two starts, but still hasn't been able to get a win even when he is given a lead. He has allowed only three earned in the last two starts, though. His numbers against Boston and at Fenway are pretty solid, but Boston's top four in the order hit him really well.

Steven Wright


2.09 (1.13/.203)

70K / 33BB, 3HR

QS: 10

Last 4 starts (28.1 IP): (4-0) 0.43 (1.24), 14BB, 0HR

Steven Wright is looking like he should be in early discussions about the AL Cy Young at this point. He has been fantastic and easily has the best knuckleball I've seen in a long time. He has 10 quality starts out of 12 and all 10 live up to my standards signifying an absolutely dominating pitcher. Wright's only weakness is walks, but even when he puts guys on base, rarely ever can anyone hit him to drive those runs in. Wright has thrown three complete games over the last month and one was against us where he allowed two runs on four hits and five walks. His ERA is microscopic over the last four starts all of which were winning decisions and he has allowed only three home runs in 82 innings this year.

Both starters pitched well, but Tillman and the Orioles come out on top and needed to count on Britton to get the last five outs after Givens put two on with one out in the eighth. With this win, the Orioles take a game lead in the division for now heading into game two tomorrow after a rare showing of good pitching and winning a low scoring game.

I really have trouble betting against Steven Wright at this point, but Gausman isn't a bad matchup for the Orioles at all. He should be able to keep us in the game, but we'll see.

Toronto blew out the Phils today to stay at three back of the lead and KC has now won four in a row with the last two being against Cleveland to move to within one game of sharing the division lead with them. The top four in the Central are separated by three games. In the West, Texas just keeps pulling away now ahead of Seattle by five games and is, IMO, the best team in the AL without question and are quite a ways better than Baltimore, Boston, Toronto and Cleveland who are all in the conversation for the top three in the AL.
