The Orioles have given up more runs than any other team in baseball this year. In two cracks at this stitched-together pitching staff, the Twins lineup has managed two runs in two games. I... I don't know any more. Tonight:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2011 - Jeremy Guthrie 5-16 28 25 2 0 0 0 164.0 172 92 83 22 49 95 4.55 1.35

Guthrie's been throwing through some right shoulder soreness. No doubt Bill Smith has called to recommend rest and rehab and hoping that it all goes away. You could make a reasonably decent case that Guthrie has been the Orioles' best starter this year - he's certainly the workhorse - but unfortunately he pitches for the Orioles. Let's put it this way: Going by game score, Guthrie has thirteen quality starts this year. He's 4-7 in those starts. He's thrown complete games and lost twice.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2011 - Kevin Slowey 0-1 7 1 0 0 0 0 20.1 28 14 14 4 2 11 6.20 1.48

Slowey's making his second start on his 2011 farewell tour. If he doesn't pitch well tonight, Gardy may punch him. If he does pitch well tonight, Gardy may punch him. Anything can happen! Maybe he'll stop the game and read Wittgenstein on the mound!
