Though a righty, in that small sample size, it's right-handed batters who hurt him more. He has a 5.63 ERA this year in his 38.1 innings of work. Axelrod cannot be allowed to dominate the Orioles. This one is Dylan Axelrod, who I assume is not related to David. O's fans will have to settle themselves for seeing another Dylan tonight. Another thing that came out earlier today was that Dylan Bundy would not get a September callup.
As I noted the other day, the tactic has worked for him so far. I would really like to know the answer to that question. Why does Dan Duquette keep packing Camden Yards with flyball pitchers? He has surrendered 17 home runs. As far as his pitching, this year he had a 4.22 ERA for Arizona, with batters hitting .280/.322/.445. Saunders, acquired from the Diamondbacks for Matt Lindstrom and a PTBNL, strikes me as someone who could play Ray Stantz in a Ghostbusters remake. Armed with that knowledge from the out-of-town scoreboard, we will watch Joe Saunders make his Orioles debut tonight.
The weekend series against the Yankees would begin with the Orioles two games back in the division. And what if the team somehow pulls off the four-game sweep? The American League East race could tighten. No pressure or anything, but an Orioles victory tonight puts them 2.5 games back. Earlier today, the New York Yankees lost.
All along Eutaw Street, ushers kept the view
While all the O's fans came and went, beer vendors, too
Outside in the distance, the bells began to clang
Two light rail trains were approaching, painted THIS IS BIRDLAND
