Miguel Gonzalez to start for Orioles in ALCS Game 4


From MASN’s Roch Kubatko comes word that the Orioles have officially named right-hander Miguel Gonzalez their starting pitcher for Game 4 of the ALCS on Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City.

Gonzalez did not appear in the Orioles’ three-game ALDS sweep of the Tigers and hasn’t pitched in a game since the final day of the regular season, but he posted an impressive 3.23 ERA across 159 innings this summer and the 30-year-old owns a solid 3.45 ERA over 435 2/3 career major league frames.

Gonzalez will face off against the Royals’ Jason Vargas in Game 4. It could be an elimination game for the Orioles if they lose in Tuesday night’s rescheduled Game 3 at Kauffman Stadium in KC.
