The New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles meet Wednesday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The New York Mets need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Mets have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Mets have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 40 hits and 17 RBI while Robinson Cano and Dominic Smith have combined for 65 hits and 44 RBI. Michael Wacha gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 7.41 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Wacha’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing 11 of their last 15 games. The Orioles have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Orioles have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 45 hits and 14 RBI while Anthony Santander and Renato Nunez have combined for 77 hits and 54 RBI. John Means gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 8.59 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Means’ first career game against the Mets.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Michael Wacha has allowed 13 runs and 19 hits in his last 12 innings, and he's allowing a .324 batting average this season with a .383 on base percentage. John Means has allowed nine runs and 14 hits in his last 12.1 innings, and he's allowing a .271 batting average this season with a .323 on base percentage. Means is probably the pitcher here this season, but the bottom line is you shouldn't be looking to back either of these guys or either of these teams for that matter. This is a train wreck waiting to happen. We're talking about two teams falling out the standings rather quickly and two pitchers with ERAs well over seven. No, thanks.
Instead, give me the over in this spot whatever the line is when it's released.
