Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles

The Boston Red Sox are visiting the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park on Tuesday night in game two of a three-game series. The Red Sox are back to their winning ways after a 4-2 win against the Chicago White Sox while the Orioles are on a three-game losing streak after being swept by the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto.

Baltimore will start right-hander David Hess (3.07 ERA) on the mound against Boston’s undefeated righty, Steven Wright (1.57 ERA). The Red Sox are 6-7 against their AL East foes in two previous series at Fenway Park.  The Sox are visiting the last place Orioles for the first time this season.

Boston Red Sox's Latest Performance :

The Boston Red Sox, on the other hand, are having a solid season. Sitting only half a game out of first place in the AL East behind the New York Yankees, the Sox are poised to make a run at first place in the division  J.D. Martinez is batting .318 and has a league-leading 21 home runs this season. He blasted his 21st in the fifth inning on Saturday to put the Sox ahead for good as they went on to defeat the White Sox 4-2.

Red Sox pitching has proven solid. They have guys like David Price (2.89 ERA), Chris Sale (2.83 ERA), and Craig Kimbrel (2.0 ERA) who has 20 saves. Granted the Yankees are on a 9-1 run, but the Sox are closing in.

Baltimore Orioles's Latest Performance :

The Baltimore Orioles are having one of those nightmare seasons that they would soon like to forget. They are currently in last place in the division and hold the worst record in the entire MLB  sitting 24.5 games back behind the first place Yankees in the AL East. The only bright spot in their season to date is the fact that there are only 99 games left to play.

On Saturday, the Orioles lost to the Toronto Blue Jays with a walk-off walk in the 10th inning that led to a 4-3 victory. Toronto catcher Luke Maile didn’t even swing the bat and they won. That demoralizing victory more or less sums up Baltimore’s dismal season in a nutshell.
