The Orioles have been an unexpected delight this season.

Dean Kremer (12-5, 4.20 ERA) vs. Reid Detmers (3-10, 5.01 ERA)
Dean Kremer is one of the cornerstones of Baltimore’s recent success, boasting an impressive 12-5 win-loss record this year and instrumental in maintaining their high standings. However, we must look deeper than this superficial record to comprehend his impact on Baltimore. Dean Kremer’s ERA of 4.2 indicates some room for growth while showing his ability to escape jams when necessary. With an excellent 1.28 WHIP mark indicating reasonable control at keeping runners off base – an essential skill when facing an Angels lineup with its home run potential. Over 150 innings pitched, Kremer has given up only 149 hits (not completely unhittable); striking out 134 times is a testament to his effectiveness at closing out critical moments in games; 26 homers allowed may pose some concern, but given overall performance level it can be ignored for now.
Reid Detmers of the Angels takes to the mound with an uninspiring 3-10 win/loss record, and numbers that speak of trouble: 5.01 ERA and 1.4 WHIP indicate his season has been far from successful, having pitched 124 innings while giving up 120 hits. Reid Detmers boasts a slightly better strikeout rate than Dean Kremer, with 142 strikeouts over his 124 innings pitched, suggesting he can be electric but lacks the consistency to prevent runs from scoring. Detmers has given up 18 fewer homers than Kremer, which may work in his favor when facing an Orioles lineup laden with home runs; however, his high walk total of 53 could show control issues that top-tier teams like Baltimore can exploit.
