Cashner pitched a gem in a second consecutive quality start as he collected the no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was able to travel seven scoreless-innings giving up four hits while striking out six and walking three. He has now gone 13 innings in his last two starts while only giving up one run with a 6:11 BB:K ratio.
The veteran now owns a shiny 2.50 ERA, but don’t be fooled by his hot start as he owns a 5.67 FIP. His 4.00 BB/9 and 16.7% HR/FB ratio is bound to come back to haunt him and inflate his ERA. He has been very fortunate thus far with a .190 BABIP, but that will start to regress along with his 94.7% LOB%.
Baltimore’s lineup has been stymied in the last week only slashing .227/.293/.314 while only hitting 13 extra-base hits and 14 RBI. They have been a miserable at the plate accumulating a league-worst 177 strikeouts.
Liriano took the loss against the Cleveland Indians in his second start of the season going six innings giving up two earned off of three hits while striking out four and walking three. He has now given Detroit two quality starts in his first two starts of the season.
For a starting pitching staff that owned a 5.20 ERA from last year, I’m sure its nice to see Liriano come in an keep the damage to a minimum. His 4.97 K/9 is concerning though as its off from his career average (9.15 K/9). It appears as though his slider has something to do with it as he is throwing it more and producing less strikes than his career average.
Detroit’s lineup has been even worse than Baltimore’s slashing .193/.237/.307 in the last week while hitting only 13 extra-base hits for a meager 11 RBI. They have only taken 43 walks, but they have done a good job not striking out accumulating only 106 strikeouts.

Both these pitchers stats look better than what they have been really pitching, and they should be due to give up some runs this outing. With the way both teams have been hitting, these prideful players should come out focused and motivated to give their teams efficient production at the plate. Roll with the over as both squads find success against the opposing pitchers.
