The Orioles went on to win yet another extra innings affair in Boston on Saturday.
For the Orioles, their 4-2 win in Boston Friday night was the perfect example of a typical 2012 game: solid starting pitching, terrific relief work, and just enough offense to pull it out.
In his guest column for Baseball Prospectus, The Agony of Rational Rooting, Nick Piecoro gives voice to a nagging feeling he’s had – that, despite how enjoyable it may be to see a struggling team’s fanbase re-energized, the Baltimore Orioles’ 2012 season doesn’t seem earned.
Dylan Bundy has been promoted to the major leagues, according to Ken Rosenthal.
The Orioles waited until the ninth inning to get on the scoreboard Tuesday night in Seattle. They waited another nine innings to score again. And that was good enough.
Devin Jones struggled in the NYPL in 2011, where he posted a 6.08 ERA in 14 appearances with Aberdeen. However, in 2012, his greatly improved command and sinker allowed him to dominate out of the bullpen in the South Atlantic League and enjoy success as a starter in the Carolina League.
The Orioles acquired lefty Mike Belfiore from the Diamondbacks to complete the Josh Bell trade. Belfiore found little difficulty in his first year as a reliever with the Baysox and narrowly beat out Chris Petrini for this award.
The Orioles scored seven runs in the first two innings, and got a terrific start from Chris Tillman in beating Seattle 10-4 Monday night.
This obviously didn’t come as a shock to anyone reading this. Dylan Bundy was one of — if not the — most dominating pitcher in the minor leagues this past season and we didn’t think twice about handing him our Minor League Pitcher of the Year Award.
