The Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets meet Tuesday in MLB action at Citi Field.

The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Orioles have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight straight games. The Orioles have won seven of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 48 hits and 14 RBI while Anthony Santander and Renato Nunez have combined for 78 hits and 55 RBI. John Means gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 8.10 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. This will be Means’ second career game against the Mets.

The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mets have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Mets have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 54 hits and 26 RBI while Dominic Smith and JD Davis have combined for 75 hits and 46 RBI. Michael Wacha gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 7.20 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be Wacha’s second career game against the Orioles.

The Orioles are 105-226 in their last 331 games as an underdog, 8-3 in their last 11 vs. National League East and 6-0 in their last 6 interleague road games. The Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass, 16-7 in their last 23 interleague games and 3-8 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series. The under is 4-1-1 in Orioles last 6 road games. The over is 7-1 in Mets last 8 during game 1 of a series. The Orioles are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in New York.

Michael Wacha has allowed 15 runs and 23 hits in his last 23 innings while John Means has allowed 13 runs and 26 hits in his last 17.2 innings. I'm not laying this much juice with the Mets, and I'm certainly not backing the Orioles despite their recent winning stretch. Instead, give me the over 9.5 runs based on the struggles of both these pitchers. We should see some fireworks in this contest.
