You could make an argument that Jason Hammel is pitching as good as anyone in baseball.
The South Kitsap grad improved to 3-0 for the Orioles on Wednesday, allowing just four hits over seven innings in a 3-0 win over Toronto. Hammel struck out seven, walked one and lowered his ERA to 1.73. He tied his career high with 10 strikeouts in his previous start.
The 6-foot-6 right-hander says he’s just pitching with a lot of confidence.
