Saturday's streaking and slumping starters

STREAKING

Jason Hammel, Baltimore Orioles
3-1, 1.97 ERA


The 29-year-old right-hander has a WHIP of 1.03 and is holding batters to a .200 average. He has gone at least six innings in four of his five starts.  Dating back to last season, Hammel has allowed two or fewer earned runs in six straight starts. When he faces the Red Sox at Fenway on Saturday, he needs to be especially careful with David Ortiz, who is 6-for-10 lifetime against Hammel.

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants
4-1, 2.53 ERA


Bumgarner, who didn’t get his first win last year until May 19, goes for his fifth Saturday at home against the Brewers.  The young, hard-throwing lefty has gone at least six innings in four straight starts, allowing a total of five earned runs in that span. Ryan Braun is 4-for-10 against Bumgarner in his career, with two doubles and a homer.

SLUMPING

Max Scherzer, Detroit Tigers
1-3, 7.77 ERA


After walking seven Yankees in 4 2/3 innings last time out, Scherzer and pitching coach Jeff Jones said they had detected a flaw in his mechanic and would fix it in bullpen sessions. We’ll believe it when we see it. The league is hitting .356 against the 27-year-old right-hander, and his WHIP is a hard-to-believe 2.05. Scherzer gets the White Sox on Saturday.

Clayton Richard, San Diego Padres
1-3, 5.12 ERA


The 28-year-old lefty has served up five homers in five starts, and has nearly as many walks (13) as strikeouts (17). He’s given up at least four earned runs in three of his last four starts. Current Marlins are 5-for-13 against him with a .615 slugging percentage. On the plus side, he’s been far better at home than on the road.

Balty still getting no respect because of the logo on their jersey (and years of futility) but they're playing well at home and on the road. And Hammel has looked great to start the year................................................................................................Gio and Worley are both straight up dealin'. 6.5 is cray low but this could/should be a 2-1 special......................................................................TB is just scorching hot right now so I gotta get on'em as well as Bumjammer and the G-Men
