Saturday afternoon, Shane Greene gets the call for the New York Yankees as they square off against the Baltimore Orioles and Miguel Gonzalez. Greene makes just his 2nd start and 3rd appearance as Gonzalez makes his 15th start and 16th appearance.
Shane Greene won his 1st Major League start and brings a 1 - 0 record with a 2.84 ERA into this outing. In the win, Greene allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (including a homer) in 6 innings of work. He didn't issue any walks as he struck out 2 batters. Greene may well see a few more starts as the season progresses in the 2nd half.
Shane Greene has yet to face the Baltimore Orioles and will have to rely on any knowledge that the scouting report imparts on him to craft a plan of attack against the Oriole lineup.
Miguel Gonzalez pitched to his 2nd straight no-decision in his last outing and that held his record at 4 -5 with a 4.22 ERA. The last time out, Gonzalez allowed 2 runs on 7 hits (including a home run) in 8 innings of work as he walked 2 and struck out 6. His last outing was the longest of the season for Gonzalez as he has had problems going more than 5 or 6 innings. It doesn't look like he will come close to his results from 2013 when he went 11 - 8 with a 3.78 ERA in 28 starts and 2 relief appearances.
Last season, Gonzalez was 0 - 2 with a 4.66 ERA in 5 starts against the Yankees. This season, he pitched to a no-decision against New York after allowing 3
runs and 7 hits (including 2 homers) in 6 innings.
