Kevin Correia will be looking to bounce back from his worst start of the season when the Minnesota Twins face Wei-Yin Chen and the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.
Kevin Correia had one of his worst starts of his career in his last outing when he went just 2.1 innings and took the loss against the Detroit Tigers. He gave up eight runs (seven earned) in that game and wasn't able to strike anyone out. That outing raised his ERA to 7.33 and his WHIP is currently 1.667.
Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy has faced Correia 12 times and has four hits, a walk and three RBI against him. No one on the Orioles has hit a home run off of Correia.
Wei-Yin Chen was able to go seven innings and gave up just two runs against the Kansas City Royals last Saturday, but he ended up with a no decision, thus ending his three-game winning streak. He scattered nine hits in that outing and struck out six while walking just two. Chen now has a 4.34 ERA on the year, but he's pretty lucky that it isn't higher considering that he has given up 39 hits in 29 innings.
Sam Fuld has faced Chen more than any other Rays' player, but he is just 3-for-13 against him with three strikeouts. Joe Mauer is 2-for-5 against the Taiwanese lefty with a double and a walk.
