    Tillman Takes Charge; Orioles Win 5-to-1

    Written by Michael Williams

    Overview

    Tonight's game is game two of a three game set and six games in the Windy City.

    Starting Pitching

    Chris Tillman had velocity galore tonight and the hook and cutter served him very well indeed. Jose Abreu homered off him in the first and he mowed them down aside from that. Just a tremendous outting from the Orioles Ace.

    Final Line:  8 IP,  3 H,  1 ER,  1 BB,  9 Ks, Win, 105 pitches. Breezing. 

    Relief Pitching

    Almost did not need any. 

    Tommy Hunter pitched in a non save ninth inning. He got four outs with the Flaherty error. 

    Hitting

    Adam Jones singled in Steve Pearce in the first and Delmon Young knocked in Adam Jones and Chris Davis doubled in Young and JJ Hardy in the sixth inning. Nick Hundley homered in the seventh.

    Defensive Highlights/ Lowlights

    Chris Davis made a very nice play at third base again tonight. His arm sure is strong. 

    Ryan Flaherty commited a ninth inning error as a defensive replacement.
