The Miami Marlins will host the Baltimore Orioles in an interleague matchup on Wednesday afternoon. It will be the finale of a two-game set at loanDepot Park.
The Orioles won the series opener 7-5 on Tuesday. Matt Harvey gave up 3 runs in 5 innings but earned the win. From the dish, they had 9 hits and were 3-7 with runner in scoring position. Trey Mancini and Freddy Galvis both hit solo shots in the game. To start the season, the Orioles have a .223 team batting average and .656 OPS. Cedric Mullens leads the team with a .355 average and .928 OPS.
Baltimore will start lefty Bruce Zimmerman on Wednesday. In 2021 he is 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 11 strikeouts. This will be the first time he has faced this Miami lineup in his career.
Miami could not overcome a rough outing from Nick Neidert in their last game, giving up 5 runs in just 3 innings pitched. From the dish they had 11 hits but were 3-12 with runners in scoring position, stranding 10. The Marlins have a .243 team batting average and .691 OPS to start the season. Adam Duvall leads the team with 4 home runs and 11 RBI.
Starting for Miami on Wednesday will be lefty Trevor Rogers. To start the season, he is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 23 strikeouts. He has never faced this Baltimore lineup in his career.
The Orioles are 4-6 in their last ten games, 7-3 on the road this season, and 7-6 as the underdog. The under is 9-8 in their games.
The Marlins are 6-4 in their last ten games, 3-7 at home this season, and 1-5 as the favorite. The over is 7-7-2 in their games.
The Marlins have struggled at home this season but have a good chance to get back on track in this one. The Marlins have been slightly better against lefty’s this season and should have the edge on the mound as well. Trevor Rogers has only allowed 8 hits in his three starts and just over 50% of his outs have come via strikeout. Give me the Marlins to win.
