Wednesday afternoon, the Baltimore Orioles will send Bud Norris (14 – 8, 3.62 ERA) to the hill to take on the New York Yankees and Shane Greene (5 – 3, 3.24 ERA). Norris will be making his 28th start as Greene makes his 14th start and 15th appearance.
Bud Norris was at the top of his game in his last start and he added another win to his record. Norris threw 5.1 scoreless innings and held his opponents to just 2 hits and 5 walks while striking out 4. It was the 2nd straight start that Norris had held his opponents scoreless in. And he hasn’t lost a game in a month’s time. Norris is 6 - 1 in his last 10 outings. In 2013, Norris was 10 - 12 with a 4.18 ERA in 30 starts and 2 relief appearances for the Orioles and the Houston Astros.
Last season, Norris didn’t face the Yankees but he has made 3 starts against them this season. In those 3 encounters, Norris is a perfect 3 - 0.
Shane Greene was solid in his last outing but came away with a no-decision. Green hurled 6.2 innings of scoreless ball and surrendered just 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6. The rookie right-hander has handled his first time in the Majors well, even though his record really doesn’t reflect that. And he should do a lot better next season. In his last 10 outings, Greene is 3 - 2.
Greene has faced the orioles twice this season and has won both of those meetings, including one less than 2 weeks ago.
