Baltimore Orioles: Three players with outstanding August numbers
August has been a good month for the Baltimore Orioles as several players are performing better than they have all year.
In fact, the Baltimore Orioles hitters and pitchers have put up numbers that haven’t been seen since their strong start in April.
Overall, the team is five and four in August. But, this doesn’t tell the whole story. During this time, the Orioles have outscored their opponents by 20 runs. Dylan Bundy has earned two wins so far in August and Ubaldo Jimenez added a win to his stats. Jeremy Hellickson also got his first win as a pitcher for the Orioles, too.
The team appears to be playing for the post-season, even though the O’s are several games back of earning a Wild Card spot, they keep playing hard. If the O’s want to play in the postseason, they have to overcome the trouble they had in the middle of the season, especially May and June. (Although, July wasn’t much better).
In May and June, the Orioles had a win-loss percentage of .429, but May was significantly better than June. The Orioles were outscored by eight runs in May, but in June, they were outscored by 62. Ouch. In July, the win-loss percentage was .462 and the team was outscored by only four runs. So far, the O’s have outscored their opponents by 17 runs in all of 9 games.
These three players are having the most success so far in August.
