The first two batters led off with singles before Alejandro De Aza parked a three-run homer. Gonzalez would settle down to escape the inning with a 6-4 lead.

Gonzalez worked a 1-2-3 fifth inning before being lifted after hitting Mike Napoli with a pitch to start the bottom of the sixth.

Gonzalez won for the first time in five starts on Thursday.

Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez allows three runs in loss vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez took a loss on Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on only four hits in 6 2/3 innings while striking out eight and walking none in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Astros.

Gonzalez (5-4) pitched well overall but made three mistakes, giving up a pair of home runs to Chris Carter and another to George Springer. With the starter struggling with the long ball, he was no match for Astros rookie Lance McCullers, who delivered a complete-game victory.

"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."

Gonzalez owns a 3.54 ERA and 58:22 K:BB ratio in 68 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Red Sox at home on Tuesday.


Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez goes eight innings in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez went a season-high eight innings in Friday's game against Tampa Bay, but he had to settle for a no-decision. 

Gonzalez allowed one run on three hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out six. 

"Miguel was the difference," manager Buck Showalter said. "That's impressive. In the American League East, guys see him so much. There's no secrets. Miguel was as sharp as you want to see."

Gonzalez has pitched seven innings or longer in five starts this year, one shy of his total for all of 2014. His next start is Wednesday at Houston. 


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.


Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez scored on early in Friday's loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez (3-2) was knocked around for five runs on five hits in five innings Friday to take the loss against the Yankees.

Gonzalez was victimized by a two-run homer in the first inning from Brian McCann and a two-run bases load double from Carlos Beltran in the third.

"It's tough because we know that they are hitting the ball really well and we can't make any mistakes, especially early in the game," Gonzalez said. "And that's why I couldn't go more than four innings -- [I] had [nearly] 80 pitches and things didn't go our way."

The outing was Gonzalez's shortest since April 2014.

"You've got to go out there and try not to nibble too much," he said. "I was missing a little bit, but that's part of the game. Sometimes you have it, sometimes you don't."

Gonzalez's next turn in the rotation will be Wednesday against the Blue Jays.


Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez goes 7 2/3 scoreless in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings in Baltimore's 4-0 win over the Rays Saturday. Gonzalez scattered four hits in the start with six strikeouts and one walk.

Gonzalez only allowed one baserunner to reach third in the first seven innings of work, who was left stranded in the third inning when Steven Souza grounded out.

"I think from the get-go, my fastball was pretty good, both sides of the plate, and we played a really good ballgame overall," Gonzalez said. "Everything was great."

Then in the eighth, Gonzalez got two outs, but put two men on base before manager Buck Showalter pulled him.

"He was carrying a couple extra clicks with the fastball," Showalter said. "But to be carrying that extra fastball is one thing. It's having command of it. He got a lot of first-pitch get-me-over breaking-ball strikes, too."

Gonzalez, now 3-1, lowered his ERA to 2.59. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Yankees.


O's SP Miguel Gonzalez yields two HRs in no-decision vs. Red Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings during a no-decision Friday against the Red Sox. He struck out one.

Gonzalez held Boston off the scoreboard for four innings, while Baltimore built a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately, the Red Sox got going in the fifth inning. David Ortiz had a two-out, three-run homer before Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run, putting Boston ahead 4-2.

The Orioles would rally to tie the game in the seventh inning, getting Gonzalez off the hook for the loss.

"I've got to tell you, I didn't think Miguel was carrying his normal stuff and he got through it," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNsports.com.

Gonzalez, who is 2-1 through four starts, is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the White Sox.


Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez earns second win Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez went five innings Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits in Baltimore's 8-3 win over the Red Sox. Gonzalez, who also struck out five on the day, only had issues in the first inning.

After putting two of the first three batters on base, Gonzalez surrendered a first pitch home run over the Green Monster to Hanley Ramirez to score three.

"I think I was getting a feel for the ball," Gonzalez said to MASN Sports. "It's dry out there, it's cold, but I was able to minimize it, but obviously those three walks and the homer to Hanley (Ramirez) got me a little bit, but I settled down after that."

Gonzalez settled in after that, allowing just three hits over his final three innings of work. Gonzalez, now 2-1, boasts a 2.55 ERA in three starts and will look to keep rolling Friday against the Red Sox again.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez evened his record at 1-1 with a win over the Yankees on Tuesday. 

Gonzalez pitched seven innings, allowing one run on four hits. Gonzalez struck out 10 and walked one. Gonzalez threw 108 pitches, 76 for strikes, while lowering his ERA to 1.42. 

Gonzalez credited his split-fingered fastball for the performance. ""Yeah, it was working," he said, per MASN Sports. "I was happy with it. Was working on it during spring training and it has really paid off. We did a good job, we had it going."

Gonzalez next pitches on Monday, against the Red Sox and Justin Masterson.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run on three hits in Baltimore's 2-0 loss to the Rays Wednesday. Gonzalez, who lasted 5 2/3 innings in the appearance, also added five strikeouts and five walks.

Gonzalez struggled with his control, throwing 39 balls of his 98 pitches in the game. His control issue led to him being pulled from the game after walking two straight hitters in the sixth. His reliever, Brian Matusz, then walked two more, leading to the 1-0 lead for Tampa Bay.

He begins the year with a 1.59 ERA. He will look to bounce back Tuesday against the Yankees.


Orioles' Gonzalez gives up three HRs in minor-league game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez threw 65 pitches in five innings during a minor-league game Friday, per MASNsports.com. He allowed three home runs, but otherwise was happy with his outing.

"It was crazy," he said. "First pitch, I would throw a fastball and they would take. Next pitch, I would throw a curveball and then I'd try to come back with a fastball. It was over the fence. 'I'm trying to work on something here, guys.'"

Gonzalez will start the third game of the season against the Rays.

"We have six starters. We don't know exactly what's going to happen with (Kevin) Gausman and Ubaldo (Jimenez), but I'm definitely excited for this season and being the third starter," he said. "Throwing the third game in Tampa is going to be exciting."
