The Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets end their two-game series Wednesday night.
The Baltimore Orioles look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Orioles have allowed five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Orioles have won five of their last seven games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 36 hits and 21 RBI while Chris Davis and Manny Machado have combined for 31 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have lost five straight games on the road. Ubaldo Jimenez gets the ball, and he’s 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Jimenez is 2-3 with a 3.40 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The New York Mets need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Mets have scored three runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last eight games. The Mets have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Juan Lagares leads New York with 33 hits and 11 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda have combined for 30 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last six games on their home field. Jacob deGrom takes the hill, and he’s 2-3 with a 3.34 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. This will be deGrom’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 39-18 in their last 57 during game 2 of a series and 8-3 in Jimenezs last 11 starts. The Mets are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 7-2 in deGroms last 9 home starts. The Orioles are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in New York.
Jimenez is off to a solid start this season and the Mets have cooled off big time when playing in Citi Field. I'll take the plus money here.
