We’ve gone to the well before backing Baltimore, and we are going to do it again on Thursday night to end this series. When you look at the numbers that RHP Chris Tillman and LHP Jon Lester have put up over the course of the season, you have to realize that they are largely the exact same pitcher. Lester has a 12-6 record with a 3.82 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. He’s got 135 strikeouts against 55 walks in 167.1 innings of work. Tillman is 14-4 with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP, and he has 133 strikeouts against 57 walks in 160.0 innings of work. It doesn’t get much more even than that. Tillman though, has this knack of coming up big in big time games, especially of late on the road. In his last three road starts, he has allowed just five runs over 22 innings of work against the Diamondbacks, Giants, and Rangers, and we think that he is going to come up with a good one here on Thursday night when his team needs it most. Back the o’s to get a big time win on Thursday night to at least save face here in Beantown.
