Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez sticks around in Saturday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) That Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez performed well Saturday is not particularly surprising. That he lasted well into the eighth inning certain is.

Gonzalez managed his longest outing since May 29 by going 7 2/3 innings to beat host Tampa Bay. He allowed just one run on five hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He had a shutout going until ninth hitter Curt Casali took him deep with one out in the eighth.

The right-hander, who has been inconsistent most of the season, has managed two straight strong efforts. He has given up three runs in his last 12 2/3 innings pitched to shrink his ERA to 3.99.

"I think there's times that you are going to have your ups and downs and you just have to go out there and minimize it," Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "We've pitched well here, attacking guys and staying ahead -- that's what helped me get to the eighth inning."

Gonzalez allowed two runs on six hits over five innings of work. He also struck out four and walked two. He is now 8-6 with a 4.21 ERA.

Gonzalez has now won two of his last three starts. He has not pitched more than six innings in each of his last six starts.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez miserable in Saturday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Gonzalez, who was coming off a strong performance, turned in a weak one in falling to the Nationals, lowering his record to 7-6 and raising his ERA to 4.24. He allowed six runs on nine hits in just five innings with two walks and four strikeouts.

He was OK until the sixth, when he gave up a leadoff homer to Bryce Harper, followed by two singles and a three-run jack by Danny Espinosa.

Gonzalez has yielded 17 runs in his last 20 1/3 innings pitched.

"He's going back through kind of a strengthening program," Amaro said, per the News Journal. "He came out and threw kind of a simulated game about a week ago, and he didn't feel like he had enough velocity to compete and he just feels like he needs more strengthening. Whether he's going to get there, who knows? ... He just hasn't been healthy enough."

"Miguel was good, he made three mistakes all night," manager Buck Showalter said, per MLB.com. "Not much margin for error, and you can say that about a few nights. I'm the first one to tip my hat to a young pitcher. You can see why they are so excited about [Astros starter Lance McCullers]. It's just that we have figured out a way to beat those guys in the past, and that's something we have to do a better job with."

Orioles P Miguel Gonzalez rocked in loss to Marlins


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez had a rough outing in Sunday’s 5-2 loss to the Marlins.

Gonzalez went just four innings and allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in the outing. He walked three batters and only struck out two. All five runs were spread out from the second through fifth innings.

Gonzalez was relieved in the fifth inning before the Orioles recorded an out.

"Fastball command wasn't there for him," manager Buck Showalter said to MASN Sports. "That's something that's been really solid for him, and usually the pitch counts and sequences that he has in his favor weren't there.

"We got another great outing out of a call-up from Norfolk, Chaz (Roe). That was really impressive. And Brian (Matusz) gave us two needed innings. We're just trying to get back on our feet because we know that there's a chance we'll be playing with a six-man bullpen shortly." 

Gonzalez has now allowed nine earned runs in his past two games. His ERA now sits at 3.83 for the season.

His next start is projected for Friday against the Rays.


Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez strikes out eight in win Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Baltimore's 9-4 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Gonzalez had issues in the first when he allowed a leadoff home run to Seth Smith. Gonzalez recovered though and struck out two of the last four batters in the inning. Then in the third, Gonzalez surrendered a three-run shot to Nelson Cruz. However, his offense had his back, providing eight runs in support to keep him in line for the win.

"He got better as the game went on," manager Buck Showalter said per MASN Sports. "He threw some zeros up after we scored and got back in it, so that's pretty typical of Miguel."

 Gonzalez, now 5-2, moved his ERA to 3.24 in 50 innings of work this season. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Marlins. 

"It seems like when there's a leadoff home run against you, you've always got a pretty good chance," Showalter said. "I don't ever remember losing when the other team hits a leadoff home run. Now that I said that, somebody will check it and find it's happened 30 times."


Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman won't start on Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was scheduled to start on Sunday, but had his outing pushed back to Tuesday because of back stiffness. Now, Tillman will also not start on Tuesday as manager Buck Showalter will go with Miguel Gonzalez and is leaning toward Wei-Yin Chen on Wednesday, according to MASN Sports.

Tillman missed his last start with an illness and is now dealing with the back issue. It is unclear when Tillman's next start would come. He is 2-5 with a 6.34 ERA in 38 1/3 innings of work so far this season.


Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez earns win vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez picked up a win on Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on three hits and three walks in 7 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

Gonzalez (4-2) threw seven scoreless innings on just 75 pitches before giving up his only run in the eighth on a passed ball.

"Just being aggressive in the zone the whole time and not trying to do too much," Gonzalez said of his pitch efficiency, per MASNSports.com. "My last outing wasn't the greatest, but this time around I worked hard and it paid off. Caleb (Joseph) did a really good job back there calling the game and mixing in pitches. From the get-go, we did a really good job and the defense kept us in the game. We played really good D."

It's the second time in his last three starts that the pitcher hasn't allowed an earned run.

Gonzalez owns a 2.93 ERA and 34:17 K:BB ratio in 43 innings. The Orioles have a pair of off-days on tap, but Gonzalez will likely face the Mariners on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
