The O's are at 79-70, half a game behind Cleveland and two games behind Texas for the second wild card spot.
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
Adam Jones "The Power and the Patience" Update
Jones, shockingly, did not homer this week. He did, however, walk once.
The O's continue their last road trip of the year with three at Boston and four at Tampa Bay.
