The Diamondbacks are 5-16 in their last 21 game twos of a series, and 2-5 in their last seven Saturday games. Arizona is also 2-5 in Ray’s last seven starts in game two of a series, and 5-16 in Ray’s last 21 road starts.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 10-1 in their last 11 inter-league home games versus a left-handed starter, and 6-1 in their last seven game twos of a series. Baltimore is also 2-6 in their last eight Saturday games, and 5-2 in their last seven inter-league games against a left-handed starter.
Baltimore shouldn’t have a whole lot of trouble here if things go well. Miley should be able to take care of the Diamondbacks lineup.
