The Orioles have lost three consecutive after winning on Opening Day, including on Monday in the opener in Houston. Chris Tillman gave up three in the fourth and was done after escaping the frame. If he continues to decline as he’s done in the last two seasons, it won’t do Baltimore any favors.
Some good news is that Dylan Bundy looked like he did in April last season in his first start of this season. You may remember how good Bundy was his first half dozen starts or so in 2017 before becoming pedestrian.
So was his 7 inning, 5 hit performance in his first start against the Twins another example of his April dominance, or is this the season he puts it together for 25-30 starts? If it’s the latter, Baltimore can live with Tillman fading into the sunset.
Meanwhile, the defending champs have had no trouble in their first week back in action. Houston is 4–1 as I write this, with another game before this one.
Carlos Correa fouled a ball off his foot on Monday and left the game. He’s considered day-to-day but there’s no concern that the injury will be anything beyond a bad bruise. He should definitely be ready to play in this game, even if he misses Tuesday.
Correa is off to a .412 start, with one of the team’s five home runs. Of course, Jose Altuve is hitting .476, but eight of his ten hits have been singles. The power will come.
Dallas Keuchel threw a quality start in his first outing, but got the loss in six innings of work. He gave up three earned runs on seven hits against the Rangers. Houston’s pitching staff looks like it’s going to be even better than last year’s, by quite a bit, potentially.
