If it weren't for the indoor facilities at Camden Yards, right-hander Chris Tillman probably wouldn't have lasted six innings in the Orioles' 1-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. During a 1-hour, 18-minute rain delay, the second weather-induced break of the game, Tillman pitched a pair of simulated innings indoors, allowing him to obtain a quality start when play resumed. Tillman threw 100 pitches in six innings, and he surrendered just one run despite allowing seven hits and three walks.

After another quality start Monday night, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman again gave credit to catcher Nick Hundley for being “right on with every pitch.” It has become a trend now. Hundley has caught Tillman's last six starts, and their numbers together have been fantastic. In 12 games with Hundley behind the plate, Tillman has a 2.67 ERA and opponents have hit just .205 against him. In seven starts with Caleb Joseph catching, Tillman's ERA is to 5.29 and opposing batters have a .287 average.

Here are some nuggets from Buck Showalter's pregame news conference in Oakland: ** Chris Tillman (elbow) threw a successful bullpen on Thursday and will likely throw one more Saturday before taking the starting assignment Monday in Seattle. It will be Tillman's first outing since leaving the mound on Sept. 2 due to elbow ligament inflammation. The Orioles still list their starter for Sunday as TBA and Showalter said he hasn't made the decision yet - he wants to see who he will need in the bullpen during this series.

Chris Tillman's groundbreaking moment came and went without much fanfare Tuesday. The Orioles right-hander pitched seven innings in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays and, in doing so, surpassed 200 innings pitched for the season - a milestone only four other Orioles have reached in the past 12 years. But because the loss ended the Orioles' playoff hopes, Tillman said it was difficult to celebrate his benchmark year. "It's tough," Tillman said. "[Two hundred innings] is more of a personal thing, and this is a big team thing," he said.

On most days, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman's performance on Saturday afternoon would have been enough for him to earn his 15 th win of the season. But locked against an opposing pitcher - Oakland's Jarrod Parker - who hasn't lost since a week before Memorial Day - Saturday turned into another disappointing loss for the Orioles (and a no-decision for Tillman). Over his past four starts, Tillman (14-4) has recorded three quality starts and has a 2.57 ERA. In two of those quality starts, Tillman left the game with the lead, only to watch the Orioles bullpen blow a potential win for him. On Saturday, in what might have been his most dominating performance of the bunch, he held the A's to one run over three hits over eight innings and matched his career-high with nine strikeouts.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman, in what is likely was his last test before re-joining the big league rotation, threw three innings against Tampa Bay Rays Triple-A players Tuesday and felt no pain in his sore abdomen. “Felt good. It was a good step in the right direction,” he said. Tillman, who hadn't pitched in a big league spring training game since March 3, pitched for the second time this week at the Twin Lakes minor league complex and said he expects to get back on his regular turn next time out. If he pitches on four days of rest, he'd likely be scheduled for Sunday in Bradenton.

FORT MYERS, Fla . - The pitching line wasn't pristine, but right-hander Chris Tillman seemed satisfied with his second start of the Grapefruit League exhibition season. The Minnesota Twins scored three runs in the second inning with the help of a three-base outfield error, but the Orioles answered with five runs in the top of the third on the way to a 11-5 victory on Wednesday night at Hammond Stadium. Tillman was charged with just one earned run, since Xavier Paul dropped a high fly ball in right field to allow Josh Willingham to reach third with no outs, but he did surrender four hits before working out of the inning.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman wasn't his sharpest in his final spring tuneup before Opening Day, but he was able to limit the damage to work out of several jams against the Tampa Bay Rays at Charlotte Sports Park on Wednesday. Tillman, who will be the team's Opening Day starter on Monday against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, made his first start in nine days after missing his last scheduled appearance with the flu. He allowed 10 baserunners (nine hits and one walk)

TORONTO - Chris Tillman certainly didn't have his best outing in the Orioles' 10-8 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night, but his ability to make adjustments and stay in the game following a nightmare six-run second inning undoubtedly gave the club a chance. Down, 6-1, at the time, Orioles manager Buck Showalter admitted he was tempted to yank Tillman after the second inning, but he kept him in to see how he'd handle the third. And Tillman retired the Blue Jays in order, striking out Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie.

PORT CHARLOTTE, FLA. -- Chris Tillman didn't waste any time reminding everyone why he was the winningest pitcher on the Orioles staff last year. He opened the Orioles' Grapefruit League season by striking out three and giving up just one hit over two innings against a representative Tampa Bay Rays lineup in the Orioles 4-2 win at Charlotte Sports Park. The only hit was a one-out double by Yunel Escobar. Tillman struck out David DeJesus, James Loney and Will Myers and got his other three outs on fly balls.
