Great Britton? Orioles’ Surging Starter Zach Britton Just May Be For Real

Meet Zach Britton–the Orioles starting pitcher whose win Tuesday night gave the Orioles a share of the division lead with the Yankees. Britton has been phenomenal for the Orioles over his last 4 starts, going 4-0 with a sub-1.00 ERA. A former 3rd round pick, Britton was previously ranked (in 2010) as a top-30 prospect by Baseball America, so his success shouldn’t come as that...

I thought I would pass this along...Zach Britton is getting noticed outside of Baltimore. Andrew Schwartz of Midwest Sports Fans provided his thoughts on the young pitcher:A former 3rd round pick, Britton was previously ranked (in 2010) as a top-30 prospect by Baseball America, so his success shouldn’t come as that great of a surprise. But still, after Britton spent the first three...

Mets' Dickey gets 18th victory with some adjustments

The knuckler wasn't on, so R.A. Dickey adjusted and went to the sinker. It was still enough for Dickey in a season that has been everything the last 15 were not. He became the first pitcher to win 18 games in the majors this season after the New York Mets' 6-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon. (Washington's Gio Gonzalez won his 18th later in the...

Braves 11, Mets 3

Kris Medlen extended Atlanta's scoreless streak to 31 innings for its best string in more than 20 years, slumping Brian McCann drove in four runs with four hits and the Braves beat the New York Mets 11-3 on a stormy Saturday.

By Dave Buscema, The Sports Xchange NEW YORK -- The Braves followed a familiar formula Saturday, getting another strong pitching performance from Kris Medlen, but this time Atlanta added a little more offense than it had produced recently. With help from a career high-tying four hits, a homer and four RBI from Brian McCann, the Braves produced an 11-3 win in a game delayed by...

Put It In The Children's Books

I was worried when Gio Gonzalez took a no hitter into the sixth inning on Wednesday night against the Cubs. Playing Wednesday night after R.A. Dickey won his 18th game in the afternoon, Gonzalez threatened to give N.L. Cy Young voters their iron clad excuse to give Gonzalez the Cy Young. You know from earlier what the talk is about giving the Cy Young to a knuckleballer. And even...
