Tampa Bay pitchers held the Orioles to a total of 16 hits in three games -- and, in fact, have allowed hits in double figures only once in the last 15 games. The Angels piled up 17 on Apr. 29. Rays pitchers issued 18 walks in the three games against the Orioles -- but only two of the runners came around to score. Indians: Tomlin won't work himself into trouble
Tomlin has exceptional control -- he has issued only eight walks in 40 2/3 innings -- which has helped minimize the damage against him. Six of the seven homers he has allowed have come with the bases empty. Worth noting
Every game on the Indians' six-game West Coast road trip was decided by three runs or less, with the last four all one-run affairs. Cleveland is 10-8 in close games (one- and two-run decisions).
