Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez much improved at holding runners
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Orioles manager Buck Showalter praised the improvement of pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez at holding runners on base, which has helped contribute to the starter's excellent numbers at the beginning of the season, MASNSports.com reports.
"We kind of miss what Ubaldo has done with runners," Showalter said. "It used to be a real challenge for him. The thought that Mike Trout would get thrown out with Ubaldo on the mound is pretty impressive. That wouldn't have happened. I don't care if it's a pitchout or not a pitchout, usually that's a stolen base. He's done a really good job with baserunners this year. So don't tell me it can't be done."
Jimenez is 3-3 with a 2.43 ERA and 38:12 K:BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings.
Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez takes tough loss on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez was the hard-luck loser on Saturday as the team fell to the Angels 6-1. Jimenez was brilliant through seven innings, allowing just two runs on seven hits. He struck out six and walked none, throwing 63 of his 92 pitches for strikes.
With his team up 1-0, Jimenez gave up back-to-back RBI singles in the top of the seventh, as the Angels took a lead they would not give back.
"It's tough, too," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "Ubaldo in the seventh was unfortunate. You can't guide balls and make them be hit at a certain tempo. We made some good pitches that they were able to put in a place we couldn't defend in the infield. That will turn. We'll have some work our way, too. Getting some real hard bounces out of that area around home plate, which we haven't been getting in the past.
Jimenez (3-3), who was originally scheduled to pitch on Sunday, was moved up to Saturday because teammate Bud Norris was scratched with the flu. Jimenez now sports a very fine 2.43 ERA in his first seven starts. He is scheduled to pitch next on Friday in Miami.
