On February 9, 2008, the Baltimore Orioles traded starting pitcher Erik Bedard to the Seattle Mariners for five players. The key cog in that trade would be future two-time AL All-Star outfielder Adam Jones.

Another important piece to that deal was pitcher Chris Tillman.

Tuesday night at Camden Yards, Tillman tossed seven innings of one-hit baseball at the Chicago White Sox as the Orioles won 6-0.

With the win, Tillman improved to 7-2 on the season and lowered his ERA to 3.26.

Prior to 2012, the young righty had seven total career victories.

Earlier in the day on Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Pirates released a struggling pitcher from their starting rotation. That pitcher?

Erik Bedard.

Like the Orioles, the Pirates are trying to make the playoffs for the first time in a long time. Unfortunately, Bedard wasn’t getting the job done and Pittsburgh had to make a move.

So while Bedard’s career takes a step backwards, Tillman continues to provide the Birds with quality starts.

Oh, By the way. We have made a lot of the Orioles and their negative run differential.

Well, over their last 27 games, the Baltimore Orioles are 19-8 and have outscored their opponents by 24 runs.

Just something to think about as Labor Day approaches.
