"He's never played more than eight games in a row,'' Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "He's gotten a chance, he's gotten an opportunity. He's made all the plays. He's contributed and he's been a good player.
BAL: RHP Koji Uehara (2-4, 4.30 ERA)
Although he hasn't won since April 15, Uehara was solid in his last outing. The right-hander gave up two earned runs on seven hits over five innings and issued no walks in a no-decision. Uehara left the game in position to get the victory, but the O's bullpen couldn't secure his third win of the season. FLA: LHP Andrew Miller (2-3, 4.56 ERA)
Throwing strikes consistently remains a work in progress for Miller. In his last outing, a loss at Boston, the 24-year-old suffered his first loss since May 26. It was a frustrating appearance because he struck out six in 5 1/3 innings but walked four, and logged 100 pitches, 54 for strikes. The high pitch count, and falling behind in counts, put him in a bind at Fenway Park. He also allowed seven hits. Miller hasn't gotten past the sixth inning since May 22, when he tossed seven against Arizona. Tidbits
