The Orioles come into this game having lost their last game 1-0 in ten innings against the Texas Rangers. Jon Means pitched a great game, going 7 shutout innings with 9 strikeouts.

Cedric Mullins leads the team with a .355 batting average, 2 stolen bases and a .928 OPS.  

Starting for the Orioles on Tuesday will be righty Matt Harvey. To start the season, he is 0-1 with a 5.02 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 12 strikeouts. In his career against this Marlins lineup, he has allowed a .171 batting average with 3 home runs in 47 at bats.

Miami was also shutout in their last game, losing 1-0 to the Giants on Sunday. Pablo Lopez pitched 9 shutout innings with 9 strikeouts, but the offense could not get anything going to support him. From the dish they had just 3 hits and were 0-3 with runners in scoring position. To start the season, the Marlins have a .239 team batting average and .692 OPS. Jazz Chisholm Jr. leads the team with a .325 average and 1.126 OPS. Adam Duvall leads with 4 home runs and 11 RBI.

Getting the start for Miami on Tuesday will be righty Nick Neidert. To start the season, he is 0-0 with a 4.00 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 6 strikeouts. The youngster has never faced this Orioles lineup in his career.

Baltimore is 3-7 in their last 10 games, 6-3 on the road in 2021, and 6-6 as the underdog. The under is 9-7 in their games.

Miami is 6-4 in their last 10 games, 3-6 at home, and 1-4 as the favorite this season. The under is 7-6-2 in their games.  

Miami has been the better team of late but lost OF Starling Marte to a fractured rib on Monday. In addition to his loss, the Marlins have not been great at home, while Baltimore has won most of their games on the road. The pitching matchup is underwhelming, and with neither pitcher going more than 5 this season, the bullpens will be key. Baltimore’s bullpen has been highly effective to start the year, ranking in the top ten in WHIP and ERA. Give me Baltimore to win.
