O's Weekly Wrap: September 10th - 16th

Tom Szczerbowski

A poor week by the O's didn't hurt them as much as it could have due to poor weeks by other Wild Card teams.

Standings

The O's are at 79-70, half a game behind Cleveland and two games behind Texas for the second wild card spot.

Results

2-4 is what happens when you go 0-3 against the Yankees and 2-1 against Toronto. Still, poor weeks by the Rays and the Rangers mean the O's are still in the thick of the wild card race.

Run Differential

-1. Blech

Best Hitter / Worst Hitter

Chris Davis hit .318/.400/.682 (193 wRC+) for the week. Matt Wieters reached some kind of a nadir, though, hitting .167/.200/.167 (-7 wRC+). It has to get better from here, right?

Best Pitcher / Worst Pitcher

No starting pitcher was spectacular this week, but Miguel Gonzalez was pretty good. In 11.1 IP he gave up four runs (three dingers) but struck out 8 against zero walks.

Chris Tillman didn't have a bad game, but technically I think it was the worst. In 8 innings of work, he gave up four runs (on one home run) while striking out only four and walking two.

Davis at the Dish Update

Davis clubbed home runs #49 and #50 to tie Brady Anderson for the O's single-season record.

Davis also ended the week with 182 strikeouts, inching closer towards Mark Reynolds' team-record 196.

Manny's Doubles Update

Machado hit one double to move to 50 on the season.

Adam Jones "The Power and the Patience" Update

Jones, shockingly, did not homer this week. He did, however, walk once.

Upcoming Week

The O's continue their last road trip of the year with three at Boston and four at Tampa Bay.
