Orioles Stud of the Week
With lackluster bats, our pitching saved us this week.

The Orioles continued their dominance on the road, winning 6 out of the 10 games on the West Coast and taking series wins against the Los Angeles Angeles and Seattle Mariners. The O's have now won 17 of their last 25 road games—and a lot of the credit should go to this group of guys.
Stud of the Week for July 21-27:
The pitching staff
With lackluster bats (aside from Delmond Young and Manny Machado), our pitching is what saved us this week—whether it was Wei-Yin Chen (11-3, 3.92), Miguel Gonzalez (5-5, 3.91), Chris Tillman (7-5, 3.92), Kevin Gausman (4-3, 3.67), T.J. McFarland (4-2, 3.07), or Zach Britton (3-2, 1.71) on the rubber.
Chen had a dominant performance against Seattle on Thursday night, pitching eight scoreless innings (an Orioles career-high-tie) and running his winning streak to four games (and 11 wins total this season). Not only did he deliver a tight 109-pitch game, but he also made two great defensive plays: one at the plate in the first and a good grab from the mound in the fifth.
To cap off the road trip, the Orioles went into extra innings last night in Seattle. But Britton came out of the bullpen in the 10th and struck out the side to secure the O's victory. Great ending to a successful road trip!
