First Half Superlatives For The Baltimore OriolesWith the Orioles currently competing for the division crown, let's take a look at our Orioles superlatives for the first half of the MLB season:
Steve Davis: Tillman's An Ace - Our AceThe Orioles are 18-3 when Tillman starts. They're a tad below .500 when anyone else starts, just 36-37. So, where would the Orioles be without Chris Tillman? Out of the playoff mix.
Garceau: Chris Tillman Is The MVP Right NowThe Orioles haven’t had a 20-game winner since the final day of the 1984 season when Mike Boddicker got to the magic number beating the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Thirty-three years is a long time but Chris Tillman is on pace to get to 20 and exceed it.
Orioles End Losing Streak, Win 4-1 Over YankeesChris Tillman tied for the major league lead with his 14th win, pitching four-hit ball for seven innings and helping the depleted Baltimore Orioles avert a four-game sweep at Yankee Stadium, beating New York 4-1 Thursday.

Machado's 3-Run Homer Lifts Orioles Over Dodgers 4-1Manny Machado hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-1 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night, ending their five-game skid while stopping the Dodgers' five-gave winning streak.
