Red Sox-Orioles Preview

(AP) -- Chris Tillman may not have the name recognition of some of the game's best pitchers, but he seems like a lock to start a playoff opener for the AL East champion Baltimore Orioles.

Few starting pitchers have been more consistent over the past three-plus months than Tillman, who tries to help prevent the Orioles from rare consecutive home losses Saturday night against the Boston Red Sox.

Baltimore's rotation has quietly been baseball's best this month, posting a major league-best 1.78 ERA and .213 opponents' batting average over the last 17 games. Every member of the staff has contributed during that run, but none moreso than Tillman (12-5, 3.29 ERA), who is 5-0 with a 1.70 ERA in his past nine starts.
