Interleague MLB action features the Baltimore Orioles traveling to Citi Field to battle the New York Mets.
The slumping Baltimore Orioles have not been able to get their arms and bats on the same page and the result has been an eight game slide. Baltimore fell to the Yankees 8-5 Saturday where the pitching struggled with starter Kevin Gausman charged with six runs over 5.1 frames while Mychal Givens giving up a pair of runs.

The NY Mets not been consistent over the past few weeks with losses in eight of ten following a 2-0 loss at the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. New York starter Steven Matz fell to 2-4 with both runs plated on five hits and a pair of free passes while striking out seven over seven innings.

The NY Mets have named Jason Vargas as the starter in game one of their series versus Baltimore.
