The Seattle Mariners and the Baltimore Orioles will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish their series on Sunday.
In the Friday opener of this set, the Orioles banged out a 5-3 win. On Saturday, Seattle returned the favor with an intense 13-inning battle that ended 7-6 Mariners.
For Sunday’s game, the Mariners will send out Justus Sheffield to start. Across 26.2 innings and an 0-1 record this year, Sheffield has a 5.40 ERA with 30 Ks and 13 BBs.
Over on the Orioles’ side, they’re going with John Means in the start Sunday. Over 143.0 innings and a 10-11 mark so far, Means has a 3.65 ERA with 112 Ks and 35 BBs.
The Mariners are 5-18 in their last 23 road games versus a lefty starter and 0-4 in their last four versus a left-handed starter.
The Orioles are 28-67 in their last 95 in game three of a series and 6-17 in their last 23 Sunday games. Baltimore is 1-4 in Means’ last five starts in game three of a series and the over is 5-1-1 in their last seven Sunday games.
Sheffield had a couple of good starts goings this month, but coughed up five earned in 4.1 innings his last time out in a no-decision.
As for Means, he had a string of four quality starts going but gave up five earned in 5.2 innings in his last opportunity. I’m not super thrilled about it, but I like Means to bounce back here and help the O’s with a win.
