The Baltimore Orioles battle the rival Washington Nationals in a Tuesday MLB matchup.
The Baltimore Orioles are looking for back to back victories Tuesday after routing Miami 10-4 Sunday to snap a nine game slide. Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy was charged with all four runs in six innings to up his record to 5-7.

The Orioles amassed 14 hits and walked twice with Jace Peterson going 2-4 with a homer and four RBI’s while Mark Trumbo went 3-5 with a homer, two runs driven and three scored. Adam Jones knocked in a pair for Baltimore and Jonathan Schoop scored twice as every player but one recorded a hit.
Baltimore sends rookie David Hess to the hill to oppose Washington for the second time in 2018. Hess comes off of a 6-4 loss to Boston with five runs given up on five hits and four BB over 3.1 frames.
The Washington Nationals were predicted to capture the National League East but the team is facing stiff competition from the division leading Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Washington needs a boost offensively with the team scoring just 4.25 runs (#20) which has put a strain on a solid pitching staff. The Nationals boast the third ranked 3.38 team ERA along with a 1.13 WHIP which is second in the game so if the bats produce the NL East could be the Nats once again.
The Nationals have named Jefry Rodriguez as the starter on Tuesday. Rodriguez has thrown 4.2 innings of relief and allowed four hIts and a pair of bases on balls.
Under is 9-1 in Baltimore last 10 interleague games and under is 7-1 in Baltimore last 8 interleague road games and Baltimore are 11-40 in their last 51 road games. Under is 9-1 in Washington last 10 interleague home games and under is 16-5 in Washington last 21 Tuesday games and under is 14-5 in Washington last 19 overall.
We don't know what to expect from Rodriguez but we sort of know what we'll get from the Orioles...
