Orioles starters failed to pitch through the sixth inning only once in the last six games, and the exception was a 5 2/3-inning start by Jake Arrieta that was the only clinker of the week. He gave up four earned runs on four hits in the only loss on the homestand. The other starters (including Tommy Hunter above) combined to give up just four earned runs over 33 innings, which works out to an ERA of 1.09.
