Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Angels will put the ball in the hands of Jered Weaver as they square off against the Baltimore Orioles and Chris Tillman. Both pitchers will be making their 23rd starts of the season.
Jered Weaver improved his record to 11 - 6 with a 3.36 ERA after winning his last start. In the victory, Weaver gave up 2 runs and 6 hits in 8 innings of work. He struck out 6 without issuing a single walk. Weaver hasn't lost a game since the middle of June and is 4 - 0 in his last 7 starts. He has already matched his win total from 2013 when he posted a record of 11 - 8 with a 3.27 ERA in 24 starts.
Last season, Weaver lost his only start against the Orioles after allowing 4 runs and 6 hits (including a home run) in 5.2 innings. Weaver just beat the Orioles in his last outing and should have a chance to do it again if he continues to pitch well.
Chris Tillman didn't get the decision his last time out and that held his record at 7 - 5 with an ERA of 3.92. In that start, Tillman allowed just a run on 5 hits in 6 innings as he walked 2 and struck out 3. Tillman hasn't had a victory since the end of June and has failed to get a decision in 4 of his last 5 starts. Last season, Tillman went 16 - 7 with a 3.71 ERA in 33 starts.
In 2013, Tillman got the victory in his only outing against the Angels behind 8 innings of shutout ball. His last start was against Los Angeles and he pitched well, but it wasn't enough.
