Bad stretch dooms Orioles SP Chris Tillman in Kansas City


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) The swoon continued Thursday for Orioles starter Chris Tillman. The hope for a second-half surge that appeared quite possible earlier this month has faded away.

Tillman was rolling merrily along for three innings in Kansas City before giving up four runs over the next three. He finished having given up nine hits while walking one and whiffing one. The loss evened his record to 9-9.

He allowed one hit in each of those first three innings, then two doubles, single and sacrifice fly put two runs on the board in the fourth. Two singles resulted in another run in the fifth and a Paulo Orlando homer in the sixth all but drove him from the game.

Tillman has yielded 14 runs over his last 22 innings to raise his ERA to 4.58.


Orioles SP Chris Tillman takes tough loss against Twins


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman pitched well against the Twins on Saturday, but was left with his eighth loss of the season in the 3-2 defeat. Tillman allowed three runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out six.

Tillman (9-8, 4.51 ERA) held a 2-1 lead after six innings. But he struggled to open the seventh, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to score in that frame.

Still, Tillman has pitched well lately, going 3-0 with a 2.50 ERA over his last six starts.


Orioles SP Chris Tillman receives win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2015) Despite giving up two home runs in Monday's start, Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman received his ninth win of the season during the 4-2 win over the A's.

Tillman allowed two solo home runs to Danny Valencia in the second inning and Mark Canha in the sixth. He also struck out three and walked three while giving up three hits.

He is now 9-7 with a 4.54 ERA. Tillman has not received a loss in his last 12 starts.


Orioles' Chris Tillman has poor outing, gets no decision Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Orioles starter Chris Tillman suffered his shortest outing of the season on Tuesday. The right-hander lasted just 2 1/3 innings, as he allowed five runs on eight hits to the Mariners. Tillman threw 72 pitches (47 strikes) to get seven outs.

He got off to a poor start in this one, as he allowed a solo home run to Nelson Cruz and a three-run shot to Mark Trumbo, both in the first inning. He gave up another run in the second inning before being pulled from the game.

The Orioles rallied to tie the game late in the late innings however, and Tillman escaped with a no decision in the 6-5 loss.

Tillman missed two starts because of an ankle injury, though it is not clear if the ankle was the cause for the poor performance on Tuesday. He came into Tuesday's game having allowed two runs or fewer in each of his previous six starts.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was able to throw off flat ground Monday and hopes to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, reports MLB.com.

Tillman was scheduled to start Monday's game at Oakland, but an ankle injury pushed the start back to Friday at the Los Angeles Angels.

"So we'll wait until we get through Wednesday until I give it a whole lot of thought but [Dave Wallace] and I were talking about it and the 11th is where you've got to start [a fifth guy]," manager Buck Showalter said. "If he's not fine by then, you're losing a lot of days."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Orioles SP Chris Tillman near-certain scratch for Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) Buck Showalter has stated that the ailing left ankle of Orioles starter Chris Tillman has improved, but likely not enough to allow him to make his start Monday at Oakland, per CSNSportsnet.

Both the hit and the walk were given up in the first inning. After that, Tillman retired the next 23 batters to face him.

"It's good. It's a process though," Tillman said, per MLB.com. "I think we have to keep working. It was good to have stuff to go deep in the game. It's been there the last three, four or five times, but the hitters didn't cooperate."

Tillman (4-2) owns a 1.41 ERA over his last four starts.

"He's up. Pitch selection was fine, changeup up, out over the plate where you don't want to get it for the three-run homer [by Carrera] and it snowballed a bit," manager Buck Showalter said, per MLB.com. "He's got to get back into attack mode. He's been pitching a lot better until today."

Orioles' Chris Tillman chased in fifth inning of loss Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was handed a loss on Sunday, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-5 defeat against the Rays.

Tillman (2-7) surrendered an RBI single in the second inning but held a 2-1 lead heading into the fifth, where he gave up four runs on another RBI single and a three-run homer. It's the fourth time in 10 starts that he has failed to make it through five innings.

"Felt good," Tillman said to MASNSports.com. "Threw a lot of good fastballs. Curveball came as I went. Changeup was good. Cutter, didn't throw it much. I left some pitches out over that they were able to do some damage on. Today was about (a lack of) damage control.

"Just need to be consistent with all my pitches. One start, the changeup is good. One start, the fastball is good. Being able to bring all that together and be consistent in the strike zone early and late. When you get guys on base, you have to limit the damage."

Tillman owns a 5.94 ERA and 41:28 K:BB ratio in 53 innings. He's slated to face the Indians in Cleveland on Friday.
