|Date & Time||Tuesday July 23, 2019, 9:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Baltimore Orioles +154 / Arizona Diamondbacks -164 -- Over/Under: 9
The Baltimore Orioles and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Tuesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Orioles have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Baltimore Orioles have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 103 hits and 47 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 190 hits and 70 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 4-11 with a 5.28 ERA and 97 strikeouts this season. This will be Bundy’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 126 hits and 60 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Adam Jones have combined for 210 hits and 124 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-9 with a 3.77 ERA and 92 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 28-62 in their last 90 during game 2 of a series, 4-11 in Bundys last 15 road starts and 14-38 in Bundy's last 52 starts. The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in their last 8 interleague home games, 1-9 in their last 10 Tuesday games and 0-4 in Kelly's last 4 starts. The Orioles are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona and 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 9-3 in Kelly's last 12 starts overall. The under is 10-4-1 in Bundy's last 15 starts overall.
Bundy has allowed 42 hits and 24 earned runs in his last 33 innings, and he's fresh off the IL due to knee tendonitis. Kelly has allowed 14 hits and five earned runs in his last 18 innings, and he's allowing a 2.83 ERA in 57.1 innings at home. I have no confidence in Bundy right now, and I have even less confidence in the Baltimore Orioles overall. Kelly has been solid at home and the Arizona Diamondbacks need to take advantage of these type of games if they're going to sneak into the postseason. Give me the home team.
