The Line: Baltimore Orioles / San Diego Padres -- Over/Under:
The Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres meet Tuesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Orioles have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Baltimore Orioles have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 109 hits and 53 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 208 hits and 78 RBI. Tom Eshelman gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 5.79 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. This will be Eshelman’s first career game against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Padres have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The San Diego Padres have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 117 hits and 69 RBI while Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. have combined for 204 hits and 110 RBI. Dinelson Lamet gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 5.00 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Lamet’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 30-62 in their last 92 during game 2 of a series, 41-109 in their last 150 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. National League West. The Padres are 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games, 0-5 in Lamets last 5 home starts and 1-10 in Lamets last 11 starts. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in San Diego. The under is 8-3 in Lamets last 11 starts overall. The over is 3-1-2 in Orioles last 6 interleague road games.
Eshelman has given up 21 hits and 12 earned runs in 18.2 innings this season and has allowed a ton of flyballs. Lamet has allowed 18 hits and 10 earned runs in 18 innings this season, but he has 25 strikeouts that provides some hope in future starts. The bottom line is that the Baltimore Orioles are a bad baseball team that's hard to get behind no matter who they have on the mound. The San Diego Padres are the better team here by a decent margin and need to win these games if they have any hope of getting back in the wild card conversation. Give me the home team.
