Peter Schmuck grades the Orioles

Considering the circumstances, it's hard to be super-critical of the Orioles' patchwork rotation, but it's going to be a long stretch run if the only guys who pitch consistently are Wei-Yin Chen and Chris Tillman (pictured). Tillman turned in another solid outing and Chen gave up just three earned runs over 12 1/3 innings in two starts, but the other three starters got knocked around pretty good during a pair of series that the Orioles needed to win and didn't. Overall, the rotation was 2-3 with a 6.00 ERA, which just isn't going to get it done.
