      New Cubs reliever Tommy Hunter made his team debut on Saturday, and recorded a two-out save in the 4-2 win over the Brewers. The save was the first of the season for Hunter, who was acquired from the Orioles on Friday. Hunter was summoned with one out in the ninth when Jason Motte put a runner on second. Hunter allowed that run to score on an RBI groundout, and then retired the final batter to close out the game. It was Hunter's first save since May 2014, when he recorded 11 saves for the Orioles.

      Rain limits Orioles' Tillman to 3 innings, Hunter earns win

      Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was only able to go three innings due to a two-hour rain delay during Baltimore's 5-4 win over the Mariners. Tillman gave up one earned run in the second inning. However, he walked three batters and allowed one hit. He struck out two during his time in the game. Tillman has struggled of late as he's now allowed 19 earned runs in his past 26 2/3 innings. Though he's dealing with a sore back, Tillman said it felt fine after the game, according to MASN Sports. A decision was made an hour into the delay that he wouldn't return. Tillman has an ERA of 6.10 for the season. The rain delay forced the Orioles to use a total of seven pitchers. Tommy Hunter pitched the eighth inning and got into a bit of a jam by surrendering two hits and a walk. However, he got out of the trouble and improved to 2-1 for the season with the win. For Tillman, his next start is projected for May 26 against the Astros.

      Orioles' Tommy Hunter adding split-finger fastball to his arsenal?

      Orioles reliever Tommy Hunter has been working with pitching instructor Ramon Martinez on adding a split-finger fastball to his arsenal, and has been encouraged by his initial results, according to MASN Sports. Hunter allowed a three-run home run to Kennys Vargas of the Twins on Tuesday. He pitched five innings without a hit or a run before Vargas' homer. Hunter has been vague when asked about his new pitch. "It's kind of like a split," Hunter said earlier in camp. "I guess you can call it a split, but people call it a changeup. Whatever you want. It's kind of like my curveball. Half the people call it a slider and half the people call it a curveball because it's harder than other people's curveballs."
