Rodrigo Lopez, RH Jered Weaver, RH (9-14, 6.17) (9-2, 2.33)
Rodrigo Lopez has given up 30 homers this season, a new career high, beating his 28 from last year. And he did it in 43 less innings than before! I hate you, Rodrigo.
Jered Weaver has lost two straight, though only one was really his fault. He threw six strong innings (4 H, 1 ER, 6 K) against Boston in his first major league loss on August 24, but was roughed up at Seattle last time out: 4.2 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 4 HR allowed.
You may recall that Weaver made his major league debut on May 27 of this year against the O's. He was a little bit dominant, going seven with three hits allowed, no runs and five strikeouts. We launched the career of Jered Weaver, so that's something we can be proud of! Huh? Huh?
Let's look over our remaining schedule.
3 @ LAA
3 v NYY
3 v BOS
3 @ DET
3 @ TAM
1 v DET
3 v MIN
3 @ NYY
3 @ BOS
So to finish .500, the Orioles only have to win 20 the rest of the way against that schedule. Ha ha ha. Bless your soul.
Happy Labor Day, everybody. Enjoy the whatever you're doing.
