Thursday's streaking and slumping MLB starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Major league pitchers have enough starts under their belts to pick out which arms are streaking and slumping to start the season. Each day we’ll look at the hottest and coldest pitchers taking the mound.

Streaking

Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle Mariners (2-0, 2.18 ERA)

Seattle’s second-year hurler has excelled early on and has risen to the challenge, out-dueling big names like Yu Darvish and Chris Sale so far. He shares the mound with another star, Detroit ace Justin Verlander. Iwakuma has 16 strikeouts and just one walk in 20 2/3 innings and is stellar inside Safeco Field, boasting a 7-3 record and 2.40 ERA in 18 home games – 11 of those were starts.

Alexi Ogando, Texas Rangers (2-0, 1.08 ERA)

The Rangers have won all three times Ogando has taken the bump this season, getting 16 2/3 innings out of the righty in those starts. Ogando has limited opposing bats to just .194 and has been especially stingy with runners in scoring position (.125). He’s fanned 17 batters while walking just five.

Slumping

Phil Hughes, New York Yankees (0-2, 10.29 ERA)

Hughes hasn’t lasted more than four innings in his three starts and was chased after only three in his most recent appearance versus Baltimore. He gave up five runs on five hits – three of which were home runs. Hughes heard it from the Bronx crowd and could be headed to the bullpen if this slump continues.

Cole Hamels, Philadelphia Phillies (0-2, 7.56 ERA)

Hamels looked much better in his last outing, giving up one run on six hits in a no-decision to the Marlins. But that’s not enough to erase his horrific efforts in his first two starts of 2013. The Phillies’ high-priced southpaw was battered for 13 runs on 13 hits, including four home runs, in just under 11 innings of work. He’s been hit-and-miss versus St. Louis going 2-3 with a 3.27 career ERA.

Preview: Dodgers (7-8) at Orioles (8-7)

Game: 1
Venue: Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Date: April 19, 2013 7:05 PM EDT


Highly touted rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu has provided some consistent efforts in his first three starts with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They could use another such performance in their interleague opener against the Baltimore Orioles.

Ryu will try to earn a third consecutive win Friday night while helping the Dodgers avoid a fifth straight defeat.

The Dodgers paid $25.7 million just to negotiate a six-year, $36 million deal with Ryu, a star left-hander in Korea, and so far, it's been money well spent.

Ryu (2-1, 2.89 ERA) has pitched at least six innings and allowed three runs or fewer in each of his three starts. He recorded nine strikeouts and had three hits at the plate in his latest outing, a 7-5 victory at Arizona on Saturday.


"I'm sure he has still lots of things to deal with as far as the culture and the language and a lot of things," manager Don Mattingly said. "But the pitching part, he came in with that, and that confidence has been there since day one."

The Dodgers (7-8), though, haven't won since that game and have been outscored 23-7 during their four-game skid. They had 10 hits in Wednesday's series finale against San Diego but went 2 for 9 with runners in scoring position in a 7-2 loss. Los Angeles is batting just .171 in those situations this year.

"We have to move forward," said Mattingly, who played under Baltimore manger Buck Showalter during his lengthy career with the New York Yankees. "We're 7-8, and that's not good enough. But also it's not like we're throwing up the white flag yet. We talk about what's acceptable and what's not acceptable and how do we turn it around.

"We're not going to sit and feel sorry for ourselves."

The Dodgers have also traditionally had lackluster performances in interleague play, going 115-139 all-time, but they'll get to face a team that's fared even worse. Baltimore's 126-157 mark is the AL's worst, and the Orioles (8-7) enter their next interleague series having alternated losses and wins in their last six games.

Baltimore, though, produced a resilient 10-6 victory in 10 innings Thursday against Tampa Bay. The Orioles rallied from an early three-run hole and erased two other one-run deficits but blew a one-run lead in the eighth.

Matt Wieters' grand slam gave Baltimore its 17th consecutive extra-inning win dating back to last season. That streak is the longest in the majors since Pittsburgh's 21 straight from June 1959 to July 1960.

"It's huge for us to get the feel for it, how we did it last year," third baseman Manny Machado said.

Jason Hammel (2-1, 4.34) will try to lead the Orioles to back-to-back wins for the third time this season. The right-hander will also attempt to win consecutive starts for the first time since June.

Hammel gave up three runs over six innings in a 5-2 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday but he's 2-4 with a 5.63 ERA in nine career starts against the Dodgers and 0-3 with a 10.66 ERA in his last three. The most recent of those matchups was on Aug. 19, 2011, in Colorado.

The Dodgers have won five straight over the Orioles with the latest series taking place June 15-17, 2004.

Preview: Yankees (8-6) at Blue Jays (7-9)

Game: 1
Venue: Rogers Centre

Date: April 19, 2013 7:07 PM EDT


After getting some bad news about one star player, the New York Yankees are hoping that Andy Pettitte's return can help them bounce back from the end to a win streak.

Their next opponent, though, might also get a key player back from injury as Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista could return from a sore back in Friday night's series opener at Rogers Centre.

The 40-year-old Pettitte (2-0, 1.20 ERA) had gotten this season off to a superb start before back spasms forced him to skip his most recent scheduled start.

"I feel good. It was a good decision," Pettitte told the team's website. "I don't want to second guess anybody. ... It's not that big of an issue. Hopefully, I'll feel great Friday."


The Yankees (8-6), who recently learned that shortstop Derek Jeter won't be back until after the All-Star break, are hoping for another effective outing from their 247-game winner after missing their chance at a season-high fourth straight win Thursday. Francisco Cervelli hit a tying solo homer in the ninth inning against Arizona but New York gave up four runs in the 12th in a 6-2 defeat.

"The homer right now doesn't mean anything, because we lost the game," Cervelli told the team's website. "I don't care if I hit three homers and we lost. I'm not happy.

The Blue Jays, meanwhile, head into this series after avoiding a season-high third straight defeat with a 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

"A win does wonders. I don't care what time of year it is," manager John Gibbons said.

Despite making some high-profile deals in the offseason, Toronto (7-9) is off to a lackluster start and has experienced just one win streak. The Blue Jays are hoping that Bautista can come back Friday and lead them to another.

The outfielder has sat out the past four games with his back woes and missed seven total contests this season. Gibbons said Thursday that Bautista was "showing progress" and might return for the series opener against the Yankees.

Brandon Morrow (0-1, 4.60) will start for Toronto and try to record his third straight scoreless outing against the Yankees. The right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer in two of his three starts this season but once again struggled to get run support Sunday in Kansas City.

Morrow gave up two runs over six innings but did not get a decision in a 3-2 loss.

"It was a nice job pitching," Gibbons said.

Morrow hasn't given up a run in his last 16 innings against New York, including back-to-back wins. He's also 3-1 with a 1.30 ERA in his last four matchups.

Pettitte has allowed three runs or fewer in four straight outings against Toronto but had a four-game win streak versus the Blue Jays snapped with a 3-2 loss at Rogers Centre on Sept. 29.

Pettittie's 15 career wins in Toronto are his second-most in an opposing stadium, trailing only his 16 in Baltimore.

The Yankees have gone 11-7 against the Blue Jays in each of the last two seasons but have dropped five of their nine games in Toronto in both years.
