Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel has a 4.99 career ERA and 1.47 career WHIP in the major leagues. But he’s putting on a clinic right now in Baltimore against an anemic Twins offense.

Hammel has thrown seven no-hit innings and is only up to 77 total pitches as the O’s prepare to bat in the bottom of the seventh. He’s walked two and fanned three, and allowed only two balls out of the infield.

We’ll update his progress from here on out.


UPDATE, 3:27 PM: Twins designated hitter Justin Morneau launched a double off the right field wall on the first pitch of the eighth inning. Josh Willingham followed with a double of his own, scoring Morneau and breaking up Hammel’s shot at a shutout. So much for that.

      Almost makes you think he wasn’t you know, throwing with full effort or something.

    Last year started the same way, but… man, did Arietta look good on Opening Day. I went to the game today & the fans that were there supported the team loudly.

    Next up? The Yankees.

    Not as worried about Chen as the other two lefties.
