8) The Dodgers win yesterday allowed them to avoid a 4 game losing streak, something they haven’t done all season.

9) Orioles P Chris Tillman has 25 SO & 2 BB in his last 4 starts. The only pitcher in Orioles history with as many SO and as few BB in a 4 start stretch is Mike Mussina (2000, 26 SO, 2 BB). (Elias)
