Another 3-2 game, but this time the Orioles don’t come away with the victory. Gausman was overall great with a 0 ER and he tied his career high in strikeouts with 10 K. But the bullpen struggled and the bats couldn’t find anymore runs.
Orioles look to make it back to back as Kevin Gausman will get the start for the Orioles. Gausman was roughed up for 6 runs last start against Boston but before that was pitching lights out, looking for a bounce back start tonight for KG. For the White Sox they’ll have veteran RHP James Shields on the mound. Last start he threw a jem, 7.1 IP allowing 3 hits on 1 run while striking out 8 batters.
G: 9, IP: 55.2, 3-3, ERA: 3.88, SO: 48
G: 10, IP: 55.1, 1-4, ERA: 4.88, SO: 36

Coming in at on my Top 10 All-Time Favorite Red Sox is Nomar Garciaparra.
A fan favorite in his time with Boston, Nomar was, by far, my favorite player growing up. 6x All-Star, a Silver Slugger, and a 2nd Place MVP Finish back in ‘98 are just some of the accolades that can be used to describe his career. Though he was never quite the same player after departing Boston, the guy has cemented himself as one of the greatest Red Sox players of All-Time. I remember being on vacation during the summer of 2004, sitting in front of the TV watching all the last minute moves of the trade deadline, then crying my 5-year old eyes out as it came across the screen that Nomar had been traded to the Chicago Cubs. Though I later learned that this trade was a key part of the Red Sox winning the World Series that year, it’s sad that we had to let go of one the greatest players to ever wear the Red Sox uniform.

In a stunning twist of events, the Nationals have announced that Stephen Strasburg will be the starting pitcher in Game 4 this evening! Apparently, Strasburg has had a fever, chills, and acute sinusitis the last few days and was on antibiotics, anti inflammatories, as well as IVs. Still, he told pitching coach Mike Maddux this morning that he wants to pitch today. Tanner Roark will consequently be skipped in the rotation. Stras, fresh off five days rest, finished with a line of 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 SO, L in his last start against the Cubs. Hopefully the lineup can get him the win this time! It's win or go home! Let's get it!
Lineup: Turner SS, Werth LF, Harper RF, Zimmerman 1B, Murphy 2B, Rendon 3B, Wieters C, Taylor CF, Strasburg P
