After their newest acquisition helped them get back on track, the Baltimore Orioles appear to have a good chance to keep it going behind one of baseball's winningest pitchers.
Chris Tillman tries for his 14th victory Friday night in the opener of a three-game home series against a Seattle Mariners team he's dominated.
One day after being acquired from Houston, Bud Norris allowed two runs and four hits over six innings in Thursday's 6-3 victory to give the Orioles a series win over his former club.
"These guys got a great club over here," Norris said. "I just want to bring my part to the table."
Baltimore (60-49) certainly bounced back at the plate, going 4 for 6 with runners in scoring position and finishing with 11 hits. The Orioles had totaled 19 runs while hitting .140 (6 for 43) in those situations during a 2-6 stretch.
Slugger Chris Davis hit his second home run in three games after a season-worst 10-game drought, while Manny Machado went 2 ...

To fully and formally integrate himself into the framework of his new club, the right-hander had to do one more thing: Take a pie to the face during the post-game interview.
And so, after throwing six crisp innings to provide the Orioles with a 6-3 victory over the Houston Astros...
The Orioles offense is terribly dependent on home runs. Never was that more apparent than Friday night when the Seattle Mariners seemed never to go away and the Orioles hit three important home runs.
Each one was important—and symbolic. The offense was needed because Chris Tillman was uncharacteristically erratic in the Orioles 11-8 win over the Seattle Mariners before 25947 at...

Bud Norris is heading to Baltimore, it looks like. Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Orioles will send the Astros the much-traveled LJ Hoes along with a second prospect and a draft selection to Houston in exchange for Norris, who is under team control through 2015. At first, it may seem like a flawed prospect isn’t much to pay for a proven, cost-controlled starter who has struck...
