Hammel ejected

Orioles starter Jason Hammel was ejected after hitting Tigers left fielder Matt Tuiasopo in the top of the shoulder with a first-pitch slider in the fourth inning of Saturday’s game.

Hammel, who had surrendered back-to-back-to-back home runs to watch Detroit take a 4-1 lead, argued vehemently about the intent of the pitch with home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt who immediately ejected the 29-year-old. Manager Buck Showalter came out to argue along with Hammel and catcher Matt Wieters about the call, which Hammel clearly saw as an offspeed pitch that got away from him. The pitch, which Tuiasopo immediately turned away from, came up high and tight and was an 82-miles-per-hour slider.

It was the first career ejection for Hammel, who was charged with five runs –one which scored after he left—on five hits and three walks over three-plus innings. He was replaced by T.J. McFarland, throwing 63 pitching for his shortest outing of the year.

With this pitching the Orioles will need to keep producing an extraordinary amount of runs to keep winning. Even a mediocre pitching staff would be better than what we have currently. I see no solution on the short term horizon.
