Chris Tillman will be looking to get back to his 2013 All-Star form on Saturday when he and the Baltimore Orioles take on Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros.
Right-hander Chris Tillman continued his rough start to the season when he gave up six earned runs against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. He made it through 5.2 inning sin that outing and allowed seven hits and walked four while striking out seven. He does have 51 strikeouts in 63.1 innings, but he has also allowed 65 hits.
In Jose Altuve's six plate appearances against Tillman, he has two hits, a walk and a strikeout. Astros catcher Jason Castro is the only player on his team who has hit a home run off of Tillman.
Lefty Dallas Keuchel pitched his second shutout of the season last weekend when he allowed one unearned run against the Seattle Mariners on the road. He gave up just four hits in those nine innings of work and struck out six while walking no one. He now has an excellent 2.55 ERA through 70.2 innings and has given up just 57 hits while striking out 61.
Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz has four hits in nine at-bats against Keuchel with a home run and a strikeout. First baseman Chris Davis and shortstop J.J. Hardy are both 1-for-3 against the young left-hander in their careers.
