The Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Braves have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Braves have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Braves with 59 hits and 44 RBI while Marcell Ozuna and Dansby Swanson have combined for 112 hits and 69 RBI. Huascar Ynoa gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Ynoa’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after losing five of their last six games. The Orioles have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Orioles have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 52 hits and 15 RBI while Jose Iglesias and Renato Nunez have combined for 87 hits and 44 RBI. Tom Eshelman gets the ball, and he is 3-0 with a 3.96 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Eshelman’s first career game against the Braves.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Huascar Ynoa has allowed seven runs and seven hits in his last 6.1 innings while Tom Eshelman has allowed five earned runs and seven hits in his last 5.1 innings. Ynoa hasn't been good this season to say the least and we can say the same about his entire MLB career that's only 17.2 innings deep. Eshelman has only been in the majors for 61 innings, but he's been decent this season, which includes an allowed batting average of .213 and a .280 on base percentage. We know the Braves are the better team, but the Orioles have the pitching edge here and knowing the price we're likely going to get, you can find value with the home team.
Give me the O's in this spot.
