The Orioles' 16-9 start has obviously been caused by tremendous pitching – and specifically starting pitching.

Orioles starters have thrown nine quality starts in their past 10 outings – and have a 1.65 ERA in that time. In the three-game series against the Yankees in New York – in which the Orioles won two of three for the first time since 2010 – the bullpen threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings.

But what might be getting a little bit lost so far this year is just how good catcher Matt Wieters has been.
