Game two of a four-game set against Detroit.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Last night was fun! It started off very un-fun. Then is was OK fun. And finally it was 100 percent all of the fun! All because the Tigers bullpen made an appearance. You can always rely on them to completely collapse in games at Camden Yards.

Tonight, the O's face-off against Justin "soon-to-be Mr. Kate Upton" Verlander. At 33-years-old, the guy, who was once the best pitcher in the world, is now over the hill. His 5.40 ERA is bad. His 74 ERA+ is bad. His 4.42 FIP is bad. He is bad!

On the other side, Chris Tillman may be in the midst of his best season to date. He has a FIP of 2.76 and an ERA+ of 135. On Mother's Day, he rebounded from a rough first inning, to really dominate the rest of the afternoon. The man is a on a roll.

Let's watch some beisbol!
