Match-up Similar to Tillman, Stroman got a close look at his wild-card opponent in the final week of the regular season, throwing 7  innings in a 4-0 loss to the Orioles. Coming in, Tillman is rested, not having pitched since Wednesday, September 28, 2016 in a 3-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Facts Stroman surpassed the 200-inning mark for the first time in his young career, finishing with 204 innings.

When Stroman’s stuff is working, he can be as tough as any pitcher in baseball, but he can be inconsistent and gave up 21 home runs this season.

While his overall regular season numbers don’t jump out, Stroman’s second half was a different story.

After struggling with a 7.71 ERA during the month of June, Stroman had a 3.71 ERA in July, a 3.13 ERA in August, and then a 3.41 ERA in September.

Former top prospect in the Seattle Mariners system. In trading Canadian pitcher Erik Bedard on February 9, 2008 to the Mariners, the O’s landed Tillman and outfielder Adam Jones.  This trade helped rebuild the Orioles into the contender they are today

It took a while for Tillman to develop, but the 6-foot-5 right-handed has provided 4 straight seasons of serviceable innings for the Orioles, winning 16 games twice during that span.

While he’s not an ace and he doesn’t throw very hard or strike out a lot of people, Tillman is a solid starter who can be really good when he’s on.

Playoff Performance Stroman was a workhorse in the 2015 playoffs.

Considering how well Francisco Liriano pitched down the stretch, many were urging Jays manager John Gibbons to go with the lefty on Tuesday against the O’s, but Stroman’s playoff run in 2015 and desire to pitch in big games was the deciding factor in going with the fiery right-hander.

Tillman hasn’t fared very well in the playoffs.

Even though he got a win in the 2014 ALDS over the Detroit Tigers, Tillman went just 5 innings, giving up 2 earned runs and striking out 6. Both runs came on solo homers.

In the 2014 ALCS against the Kansas City Royals, he was touched up for 7 hits and 5 runs in just 4 1/3 innings.

How to Fix Netflix if it fails to broadcast to Chromecast

NetflixThis article gives you the step-by-step guide on how to resolve the issue where Netflix fails to broadcast to Chromecast.

Our Set-up

The Problem

  • From time to time, we’ve noticed that the Chromecast will fail to receive the “casting” from our Samsung Galaxy S4, especially when we switch from one Netflix profile to another.
  • Casting any shows from the Samsung Galaxy S4 to Chromecast will just show an idled “Ready to cast” screen.

The Solution

  1. On the Samsung Galaxy S4, bring up the Settings screen by touching the phone from the top edge and pressing downward.
    Bring up the Settings
  2. On the Settings screen, press “MORE” and then “Application manager”.
