Preview: Mets at Orioles June 11, 2010

New York Mets (32-28) at Baltimore Orioles (17-43) 7:05 pm

R.A. Dickey (3-0 3.20) vs Jeremy Guthrie (3-6 3.71)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets get three games in Baltimore this weekend against the worst team in baseball. That should help their poor road record (8-18). Dickey has made four starts this season and the Mets have won the last three. His knuckler has been much more effective than I thought it would be. Guthrie has pitched well this season. He’s only been hit hard in a couple out of his 12 starts. He’s a victim of pitching in front of a really bad team.

Orioles 5 – Mets 4 June 18, 2009

The Mets looked like they had this one wrapped up with a 4-3 lead going into the ninth and Francisco Rodriguez coming into the game. But K-Rod blew his second save and this one was completely on him. He looked really bad loading the bases and walking in a run before giving up another game winning hit to Aubrey Huff.

Livan Hernandez had another very solid start going 7 innings and giving up 2 runs. As usual, he gave up 8 hits and 1 walk but did a good job of limiting the damage.

The Mets offense was paced by Carlos Beltran, Alex Cora, and Luis Castillo with 2 hits apiece. Again, the Mets had no home runs and only one double by Daniel Murphy. Not much power in this lineup.

The Orioles take two of three games from the Mets as they come home to face the Rays.

orioles-logoNew York Mets (33-30 Road: 15-19)  at Baltimore Orioles (28-37 Home: 20-17) 7:05 pm

Livan Hernandez (5-1 4.33) vs. Jason Berken (1-3 7.32)

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Orioles play the rubber game of the series before the team comes home to face the reigning American League champion Rays. The weather forecast is good for Baltimore tonight so there won’t be a problem getting the game in. Hernandez was rocked by the Yankees in his last start for 6 runs in 5.1 innings. But he’s been up and down so it’s difficult to know what to expect. There hasn’t been a lot of consistency. Berken is a rookie right-hander making his fifth career start. His first two starts were pretty good but he’s gotten beat up in his last two starts. The Orioles have lost 3 of the 4 games that he’s started.

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: The Mets got a gift of a game last night due to 3 Baltimore errors. The Mets look to take another one tonight with Uehara on the mound. The Orioles have lost 7 of the last 8 games that he’s started. Redding has pitched pretty well in his last 2 starts for the Mets and looks to keep that trend alive tonight.
