425. Close enough!

Well at least we won't get shutout again for Burnes.  Lets give him more than 1 though.

They’re hacking early in count. No strategy on offense. And the quick innings and low offensive output games are adding up.

When Palmer said, "they're not being very selective", I almost started laughing.  No kidding, Jim.

Mullins is completely lost. Just swung at a pitch that hit him in the back foot

I guess I understand why he wasn’t running out of the box since he just got hit on the foot, but if he was he beats that throw to first.

Berrios is a tough guy to find yourself against.

That said, Yeah He's lost at the plate.

Santander did the same thing a couple weeks ago.  Don't see it very often.

Weird play.

Berrios made a really nice play and throw.

Tough outcome for Mullins.

Long AB, K on a pitch that hits your foot, get thrown out at first to seal it.

Maybe that's the slump bottoming out

If I was a pitcher facing the Orioles, I wouldn't throw anything over the plate.  Zero.  You know they're not going to take a walk so why put anything over that they can hit?  I'd throw nothing but slop too.

I didn’t even know that was a live ball. I figure if you swing and miss at strike 3 and it hits you it’s a dead ball out

Like clockwork, the 6th arrives and Burnes is falling apart.

2 strikeouts.

Not a lot of hard contact, but not missing many bats. Can't get beat by guys like Vogelbach and Kirk.

1 R through 6. Not dominant, but he's getting the job done. Need more offense.

Aces miss more bats than Burnes misses.

He had a good start. Lots of #2 starters have plenty of good starts.

I guess it is if there's a runner on first and less than two outs.

It's a strange play, because the ball is dead any other time a pitched ball hits a batter.

Instinctively, the fielders are going to relax.

That makes Berrios' play that much more impressive.
