Erik Bedard ties Orioles record.
Among the new and emerging MLB stars, it seems that more and more of them are coming from Canada. Russell Martin has risen as one of the best catchers in the game and was even the starting catcher for this year's All-Star Game.
Baltimore Orioles' starting pitcher Erik Bedard is starting to really open some eyes and is now getting the baseball fans attention he deserves. Yesterday, Erik Bedard has won his 9th consecutive game, improoving his record to 13 wins and 4 losses this season. (With a very ordinary team: Baltimore has a 58-65 record this far this season, 16 games games behind the Boston Red Sox.)
During yesteray's game, Bedard registered 11 strikeouts bringing his season total to 218 strikeouts, tying the Baltimore Orioles team record for a single season. At his best, Mike Mussina registered a 218 strikeouts season with the Orioles. Bedard will get past Mussina with the next strikeout he will register during his next start.
Since June 15th, Erik Bedard has an impressive 9-0 record in 12 starts.
