For the past several seasons, Chris Tillman has been a very promising young arm for the Baltimore Orioles; however, from time to time, he is inconsistent, confounding and can be frustrating to watch on the mound. On Tuesday night, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Houston Astros, 4-1, and Tillman was excellent, only allowing one run in seven innings of work. The Astros – universally predicted to be awful this season – were flying high and has won six straight games before facing Tillman and the Orioles. I sometimes don’t know what to think of the tall, lanky right-handed pitcher based on his up-and-down starts this year; however, when Tillman is good on the mound – he looks like a top of the rotation starter. As of this morning, Tillman has a 5-2 record with a 3.97 ERA in 70 1/3 innings pitched. I stayed up and watched the first six innings of the game on Tuesday and amazed by the work of Chris Tillman. His start in Houston was solid; however, he threw clunkers in his two previous starts against the Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays. >>> Read More
