The Line: Baltimore Orioles / New York Mets --- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
The New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The New York Mets need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Mets have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The Mets have lost nine straight games when scoring three or less runs. Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 39 hits and 17 RBI while Robinson Cano and Dominic Smith have combined for 63 hits and 43 RBI. The New York Mets didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Orioles have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine 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 73 hits and 47 RBI. Asher Wojciechowski gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 5.13 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. This will be Wojciechowski’s second career game against the Mets.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Asher Wojciechowski has allowed 11 runs and 23 hits in his last 21.1 innings, and that includes 17 strikeouts and eight walks during that span. At home this season through 13.2 innings, Wojciechowski has a 6.59 ERA and .296 allowed batting average with four walks and 13 strikeouts. Wojciechowski just is not the pitcher I'm looking to get behind with those numbers. However, the Mets aren't playing any better baseball, they still can't score when not hitting home runs, and they just lost yesterday with their ace on the hill. A really blah game and probably an even worse pitching matchup when the Mets announce their starter, I'll take my chances with the over whenever a line is released.
The over is a copout to avoid having to pick one of these slumping teams with shaky at best pitchers on the mound.
