Miguel Castro went well above the call of duty tonight for the Orioles after he took over in the 3rd inning in Tillman’s shortened outing. He kept the Orioles in the ballgame by delivering six shutout innings of relief, allowing just one hit and one walk, while striking out two. He is the Hangout Player of the Game.

Starting Pitching

  • Chris Tillman continued to struggle once again, putting the Orioles in an early 2-0 deficit after the 1st. Following a rain delay, Tillman failed to work out of the 3rd inning and allowed all 7 runs to score in this one, 5 of which were earned. Final Line: 2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, K, Loss

Relief

  • Richard Bleier worked a scoreless 9th, lowering this ERA to 1.56 on the season.

Hitting

  • Tim Beckham had another productive night at the plate, batting 3-for-4 with a single, a double, and his 13th home run of the season.
  • Craig Gentry went 2-for-4 and scored twice.
  • Adam Jones went 2-for-3, walked twice, and scored a run.
