BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have shown lots of power in the first two games of their series with Houston but the Astros continued banging out hits, a big reason theyve each won one. Anze Kopitar Kings Jersey .Now, the question for Saturdays game is which offense can do more.The Orioles (67-54) lead the major leagues with 188 homers and already have hit 11 in the first two games.They belted six in Thursdays 13-5 victory. Then, they hit five on Friday -- four of which came before Houston (62-60) recorded an out in the first inning, a new major league mark -- but the pitching could not hold an early four-run lead as the Astros rallied for a 15-8 victory.Houston banged out seven hits in Thursdays loss. The Astros then rebounded Friday with 18 hits and runs in seven innings in that victory.Orioles manager Buck Showalter said his team simply has to forget about this game and move on.Our guys turn the page very quickly, just like their team did before tonights game, Showalter said. You cant sit there and live in that world. If you do, youre going to have it happen again and again and again.Baltimore now will need stopper Chris Tillman to step up on Saturday as the Orioles have dropped three of their last four games. Tillman (15-4, 3.46) was moved back three days due to some shoulder issues. He had been scheduled to start the second game of the Boston series but Dylan Bundy stepped in.Tillman last pitched when he went seven innings in last Thursdays 9-6 victory in Oakland. He allowed two runs in seven innings.The right-hander will face right-hander Mike Fiers (8-6, 4.66). He lasted 4 2/3 innings and took the loss in last Sundays 9-2 defeat against Toronto, allowing five runs despite striking out seven.This is going to be his first career appearance versus the Orioles.Houston needs better work from its starters, whove had issues lately. In this series, Joe Musgrove gave up eight runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday and took the loss.On Friday, Collin McHugh allowed four homers to the first five batters and eventually allowed seven runs in three innings. Manager A.J. Hinch said the starters need to take the pressure off of the tired bullpen.Were at our best when our starters are getting us at least the sixth and seventh, and now were having a hard time getting through four and five innings, Hinch said. Its never ideal for your staff when your starters take it on the chin, and youre usually playing from behind, youre usually depleting your bullpen.Hinch also confirmed that center fielder Jake Marisnick isnt quite 100 percent due to groin issues. To that end, the skipper said hell probably put him in the lineup every other day for a while. He did not play Friday.For the Astros, the question now is how much a victory like Friday can give them a spark as they ended a five-game losing streak in a strong way.These games are never over, said Houston right fielder George Springer. To get down after the first inning and then just to keep fighting back when they took the lead and kind of extended it ... is big for us. Adrian Kempe Jersey . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. Rob Blake Jersey . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. http:///...alchuk-kings-jersey/ . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Lee Westwood believes he has proved his doubters wrong by playing well enough to justify his wildcard selection and secure a 10th consecutive Ryder Cup appearance.When his good friend and former Ryder Cup partner Darren Clarke was named captain in February 2015, it was easy to assume Westwood -- who was 41 at the time -- would be set for a role as vice-captain at Hazeltine.However, the former world No. 1 was determined to prove he deserved a place on the team and after slipping down the rankings, crucially finished second in the Thailand Golf Championship in December 2015 to end the year 50th in the world.That ensured Westwood a place in the Masters in April and he made the most of it by finishing second to final-round playing partner Danny Willett.I was determined that I was going to show some form and get on that team, said Westwood, who needs two more points at Hazeltine to equal the record held by Nick Faldo, from one fewer appearance.He added: I wasnt ready to write my game off just yet. I knew I was still capable of some good golf. It was nice to play well at the end of last year and actually get in the Masters from the result in Thailand, and obviously played great at the Masters and finished second with a chance to win. Tyler Toffoli Jersey. Any time anybody writes you off, its good motivation. You can either take it and be miserable or stick it back down their throat, which is pretty much the attitude that you have to have when you go to the Ryder Cup, as well.Westwood and Clarke played together eight times in the Ryder Cup, most memorably at The K Club in 2006 just weeks after the death of Clarkes first wife Heather.Its the most emotional of all the Ryder Cups I played in, theres no doubt about that, added Westwood, who partnered Clarke to victory over Phil Mickelson and Chris DiMarco in the opening fourballs.That made it tough in a way because we were both wild cards for that week. Its always a little bit tricky when youre a wild card, theres a little bit of extra pressure where you feel like you have to justify your pick, even though you dont. In the back of your mind, you want to play well and win some points for the team.That one at The K Club was very special, being on that first tee with Darren. Even though the emotion was for the wrong reason, it was still something Ill never forget. ' ' '
