Bud Norris remains on roll with win over Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Orioles right-hander Bud Norris continued his encouraging down-the-stretch performance Wednesday against the host Yankees with his fourth strong outing in the last five.

Norris allowed three earned runs on five hits in six innings to raise his record to 15-8. He walked one and fanned nine, giving him 23 strikeouts in his last 18 1/3 innings pitched. He surrendered single runs in each of the first three innings, two coming on solo blasts off the bats of Stephen Drew and Chase Headley.

He has given up just seven runs in his last 30 1/3 innings and is on a 4-0 run heading into the playoffs.


Orioles' ALDS rotation taking shape


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/23/2014) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he will use four starting pitchers for the American League Divisional Series. Chris Tillman is on course to be the team's starter for Game 1 on Oct. 2, and Miguel Gonzalez and Wei-Yin Chen are the likely starters for Games 2 and 3, though their order has yet to be determined.

Should the series advance to a Game 4, Bud Norris would be the leading candidate to make that start.


Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.

"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."

While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.

As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.


Bud Norris wins despite control issues


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had some control issues Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Norris allowed two hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He walked five and struck out four during the outing. Norris’ penchant for free passes nearly got him in trouble at a few points during the game. He put men on second and third with only one out in the second inning, but was able to work his way out of the jam. Norris also put two men on in his final inning of work. After getting a lineout, he was pulled from the game. Norris threw 108 pitches.

With the win, Norris improved to 14-8. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Norris was touched up for four solo home runs in the start, with two coming in the first inning. He gave up an inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning, and the Rays got to him one more time in the sixth. The offense was able to come from behind and spare the starter a loss. Norris owns a 3.92 ERA and 116:44 K:BB ratio in 147 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees Saturday.


Bud Norris picks up the win Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris picked up a win Tuesday against the Reds.

Norris allowed four hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out seven and walked one during the outing. Despite the strong start, Norris never flirted with the no-hitter. Billy Hamilton singled to open the game, ending that possibility. Norris was able to pitch around the single, not giving up any runs. A fielding error put two men on base in the third inning, but that was the closest the Reds would come to scratching a run across against Norris.

With the win, Norris improved to 12-8. He'll take on the Rays in his next start.
