The Orioles fly into this Tuesday night matchup sporting a meager 20-50 record that ranks them dead last in the AL East. Currently a massive 27 ½ games behind the division leading New York Yankees, the Orioles have zero chance of making this year’s postseason. All in all that will mark Baltimore’s second consecutive losing season and their second in which they fail to make the playoffs. With a 1-9 record in their last 10 matchups, it’s easy to see why the MLB sports betting odds are siding against the Orioles this evening. Notwithstanding their current struggles, Baltimore will be sending David Hess to the mound this evening. Hess is 2-3 on the season with a 4.13 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Manny Machado (18 HR, 53 RBI, .310 BA), Adam Jones (10 HR, 31 RBI, .293 BA), and Danny Valencia (6 HR, 17 RBI, .283 BA).
The Nats slide into this matchup flashing a 38-32 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL East. At the present moment, Washington is 3 ½ games behind the NL East leading Braves. However, keeping in mind their aforementioned losing streak, Washington needs a fast rebound if they are to keep within range of the Braves. Especially since the Philadelphia Phillies are also 3 ½ games behind Atlanta. The Nats will be starting Jefry Rodriguez this evening – who will be making his 1st start of the year.
Players to Watch: Matt Adams (13 HR, 36 RBI, .275 BA), Trea Turner (7 HR, 25 RBI, .256 BA), and Bryce Harper (19 HR, 43 RBI, .212 BA).
