In Sunday's Orioles win, Chris Tillman continues his dominance over the Mariners

Orioles starter Chris Tillman dominated the Seattle Mariners lineup again Sunday, but he wants everyone to know that it’s nothing personal.

Baltimore Orioles: The starting pitching problem

Orioles pitcher Wei-Yen Chen has been the teams best starter thus far   For the Baltimore Orioles starting pitching staff this season, the unreliable play has been about as hit or miss as an actual pitch.

Chris Tillman, Orioles’ Bullpen Silencing Critics As Baltimore Continues to Be Thorn in Red Sox’ Side
