The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Orioles have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Orioles have won four straight when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 138 hits and 62 RBI while Adam Jones and Chris Davis have combined for 152 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won six of their last eight home games. Ubaldo Jimenez takes the hill, and he’s 9-7 with a 3.92 ERA and 122 strikeouts this season. Jimenez is 2-4 with a 3.71 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 7-15 in their last 22 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in Syndergaards last 8 road starts. The Orioles are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 12-2 in Jimenezs last 14 home starts. The under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore.
Ubaldo has damn near impossible to beat at home, as the O's have won 12 of his last 14 home starts. With the Mets having issues all season on the road, I'll gladly take the cheap price and the home team.
