The Mets and Orioles will wrap up their short two-game, interleague series Wednesday at noon.
After multiple seasons of hovering near the bottom of the AL East, the Orioles seem to be showing more promise in 2021 and have seen progression from their young players.
The Orioles are coming off avoiding a series sweep against the Boston Red Sox and won their last game Monday. Ryan Mountcastle and Trey Mancini both had big days for Baltimore, with each player blasting a home run as part of a four-run, nine-hit team effort.
The Orioles are in in fifth in a packed AL East, six and a half games behind the Red Sox for first.
Cedric Mullins leads the Orioles with a .313 batting average and also paces Baltimore in hits and on-base percentage. Mancini leads the club in home runs and RBI’s.
Former Mets ace Matt Harvey is lined up to start Wednesday for the Orioles. Harvey is in the midst of a career renaissance with Baltimore, sporting a 3-2 record and 3.60 ERA in seven starts this season.
New York Mets
The Mets are starting to find themselves a bit of late and have taken over sole possession of first in what has been a weak NL East division. Unfortunately for the Mets, however, they recently lost ace Jacob DeGrom for an undisclosed amount of time due to injury.
The Mets lead their division by one game following their win against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. The Mets pitching has been top-tier, registering the second best ERA in the MLB of just 3.00.
Pete Alonso has done the heavy lifting for the Mets offense this season. He leads the team in average, home runs, RBIs and hits.
Taijuan Walker gets the ball for the Mets Wednesday. The right-hander is 2-1 with an ERA of 2.38 this season and has shown great control, striking out 35 while walking just 15.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Orioles are 12-6 in their last 18 games versus National League opponents
- The Mets are 1-6 in their last 7 games versus American League opponents
Free Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Expect runs to be few and far between in this matchup once again. At the time of this writing the Tuesday game is tied 0-0 in the bottom of the 6th inning. The teams have managed just 8 hits combines with 6 of those being from the Mets.
Both of the starters Wednesday have shown some promise this season and boast relatively low ERA’s with Walker having the better at 2.38.
I don’t see this game getting near 8 runs so take the easy under.
