Means (5-3) allowed one run on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings, earning the win Saturday versus Detroit.
After a couple of shaky outings since returning from a shoulder strain, Means finally looked like himself Saturday. The only run he gave up was a solo home run to Eric Haase in the fourth inning. Means has been Baltimore's most reliable starter this year with a 2.84 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 79:15 K:BB through 88.2 innings, but Saturday was his first quality start since May 24. He tentatively lines up for a start versus the Rays during next weekend's series.
