The New York Mets continue their interleague series with the Baltimore Orioles in Wednesday MLB action.
The NY Mets bullpen collapsed Tuesday in a 6-2 defeat at Baltimore. New York starter Jason Vargas gave up a pair of runs through six innings before Bobby Wahl and Paul Sewald allowed two runs apiece.

The Mets logged seven hits and three bases on balls with Amed Rosario and Todd Frazier recording RBI’s while Brandon Nimmo had two hits and scored twice.
A red hot Zack Wheeler gets Wednesday’s road start at the Orioles. Wheeler has won five straight after knocking off Miami 6-2 with both runs allowed on four hits and a walk over seven frames.
The Baltimore Orioles put everything together Tuesday for what has been a rare victory. Baltimore starter Andrew Cashner picked up the win with both runs allowed on five hits and three BB over seven frames to get the win.
The Orioles totaled eleven hits and walked five times with Adam Jones and Chris Davis clubbing long balls while Trey Mancini smacked a two run bomb.
The Orioles have named Dylan Bundy as Wednesday’s starter versus the visiting Mets. Bundy comes off of a 19-12 loss to Boston with eight runs plated over five frames.
NY Mets are 7-19 in their last 26 interleague games and are 3-9 in their last 12 interleague road games. Baltimore are 6-20 in their last 26 interleague games and over is 9-3-1 in Baltimore last 13 on grass and Baltimore are 18-50 in their last 68 overall. Under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings and NY Mets are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
The Mets have the far better record then the Orioles but looked horrible late in Tuesday’s loss. I prefer Wheeler Wednesday but New York is a difficult team to back. Note-I am seeing Hess as the Orioles starter?
