Miami Marlins vs Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles host the Miami Marlins on Saturday afternoon at Oriole Park in game two of a 3-game series. The Orioles are currently on a 7-game losing streak and 2-8 in their last ten. The last place Marlins, on the other hand, are on a 3-game win streak and 6-4 in the last ten. They sit 13.5 games out in the NL East while the Orioles sit a whopping 27 out.

On the mound in game two for Baltimore is Alex Cobb (2-8, 7,23 ERA) a right-hander from Boston taking on Wei-Yin Chen (1-3, 6.13 ERA), a left-hander from Taiwan.

Miami Marlins's Latest Performance :

The Marlins have managed to win their last three games (all against the Giants) and are making a move to take over fourth place from the Mets who have lost their last couple. The Marlins stole their last game against the Giants in the ninth on Wednesday with a game-ending sacrifice fly to left to win 5-4. A sweep of the awful Orioles would certainly help bolster the argument for fourth place in the NL East.

Star rookie Brian Anderson, who won the game for the Marling on Wednesday, is hitting .308 and has been the bright spot in the batters box this season.




Baltimore Orioles's Latest Performance :

The Baltimore Orioles are having a bad season. A really bad season. They have the second-worst record in all of Major League Baseball, they are on a seven-game losing streak, and are currently 8.5 games behind the fourth-place Blue Jays. However, Thursday, June 14th proved to be a good day for fans in the midst of all of this losing. Why? Because the Orioles did not play a game and therefore, could not lose.

The Orioles managed to drop another game on Wednesday to the Red Sox 5-1, but far worse was another blow to their bullpen. Pitcher Richard Bleier suffered a serious lat injury erasing his trade value.  At this point, the Orioles are trying to be better than their old 1988 selves.

In-Depth Analysis of each team:

Only an insane person would pick the struggling Orioles over the Marlins. I’m definitely not going to do it here. Look for the Marlins to sweep this series and continue their winning ways. They have played well of late and if their series sweep of the Giants is any indication, they’ll be looking well past the Orioles in this one.
