Season Series

The Detroit Tigers dominated the Baltimore Orioles in the regular season, going 5-1 and outscoring the Orioles 33-20. The only game the Tigers lost against Baltimore was the final game of the series at Comerica Park; the Detroit Tigers completed a sweep the last time they visited Camden Yards.

Starting Pitching

Max Scherzer(18-5, 3.15 ERA) had a solid year following his Cy Young winning 2013 season, and was, for the most part, the most reliable and consistent starter for the Tigers in the 2014 season. Max has been solid against the Orioles over his career, going 3-1 with a 3.92 ERA in 39 innings.

Chris Tillman(13-6, 3.34 ERA) has a favorable record in his career over the Detroit Tigers, going 3-0 with a 3.58 ERA in 37.2 innings.
