One walk, one reached by error. This falter dude is throwing a no-hitter today.

Offense has looked rough since the last game against LAA. Definitely some guys scuffling right now.


Probably because the best hitters are at AAA.

I swear that happens more often these days than in the past. 

 

Smart to take second.

This guy is pitching a master class today. Tons of weak contact.

I've been clamoring for years that should be E10 (team error). That is a play that should be made. But you can't give the error to the 2B or CF. Both of them could have made a play but neither did. Shouldn't punish the pitcher for that.

The Orioles are giving a classic example of hitters trying to loft balls 500 ft. instead of leveling the bat on the ball and hitting it hard somewhere. The all or nothing offense at its best.

Falter’s got insane movement on his FB, causing the O’s hitters to fail to square the bat all game.

That's going to be interference.

Part of me is ok with that.

I sort of hate that rule.

I guess that's one excuse they can use. Coming into today, there haven't been too many hitters having issues with his stuff.

This isn’t hockey, nor is it football. The runner’s goal there was to interfere with Westburg’s ability to turn two. He changed his direction and purposely slide through Westburg’s legs. 

 

As usual, there’s some stupid clause that basically says if the runner didn’t threaten his intention to the fielder in writing, the umpires can rule however they would like.

LOL the Pirates took Falter out after 78 pitches through 6. 

 

Go steal this win.

So glad Falter ran up to his pitch count.
