It's been a breezy 3 days in Houston for the Orioles. They whiffed 52 times! The word from the Elias Sports Bureau: That's the most ever in a 3-game series. The record they broke was a month old - 47, by the Nationals against the Twins.
George Springer homered twice and the Houston Astros set a major league record for strikeouts in a three-game series, finishing a sweep of the Baltimore Orioles with a 4-2 win Thursday night.

Tweak to delivery keys Tillman's success
Chris Tillman made a minor adjustment to his leg lift during his delivery entering this season, and it is paying off in a major way (2.61 ERA). "We're talking about, you know, so small," Tillman said of the tweak. "I feel like I'm more consistent right now, and I can throw my off-speed for strikes." Baltimore Sun
