Miguel Gonzalez earns first win with five scoreless innings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez needed 98 pitches to go five innings Wednesday, but they were five fine innings. He kept Tampa Bay off the board on three hits while walking three and striking out six in easily his finest start of the season.

Gonzalez has improved markedly in each of his three outings. He lowered his ERA to 6.28 in the defeat of the Rays.

His next start is scheduled for Monday against Boston.


Miguel Gonzalez to pitch Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez will simply have his start pushed back one day after being rained out Tuesday. Gonzalez will start the team's series finale against the Rays Wednesday, though the team has not indicated how the rotation will shape up beyond that.  

Rays-Orioles game postponed Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) The Rays/Orioles game was postponed Tuesday due to inclement weather. No date yet has been announced for a makeup game.

Jake Odorizzi was scheduled to start for the Rays before he was scratched in favor of reliever Brandon Gomes because of the weather. Miguel Gonzalez was expected to start for Baltimore.


Miguel Gonzalez takes no-decision in quality start Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez didn't record a decision Wednesday, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in six innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 win over the Yankees Wednesday.

Gonzalez served up two solo home runs in the second inning but did a good job after, with the other run scored against him coming on a fourth-inning groundout. It was a nice step forward after Gonzalez gave up seven runs in his season debut. He'll take on Rays in his next start, which will likely come Tuesday.


Miguel Gonzalez hit hard in rain-soaked debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez's first start of the season didn't go as well as hoped, as he struggled through a rain-soaked 10-4 loss to the Tigers.

Gonzalez returned to the game following a 34-minute rain delay in the fourth inning, but didn't last much longer than that. He was pulled after 3 1/3 innings, as he gave up four runs on two homers in the fourth following the delay.

Gonzalez was ultimately charged with seven earned runs on nine hits and a walk in 3 1/3 innings, while striking out just one hitter. He threw 46 of 78 pitches for strikes as he took the loss.

Gonzalez posted a 3.78 ERA and was a solid option in the rotation for the Orioles a year ago, so he will try to bounce back from his subpar opener moving forward. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Yankees.
