5/19 Pitcher vs Hitter Matchups – Game 3 against Baltimore

Coming off of a bad game, where the pitching gave up 7 runs and the offense squandered rallies, “Ricky Raindrops” takes the mound on a rainy day. The only bright spots about last night’s Red Sox game were Mookie continuing his MVP campaign and the Royals handing the Yankees a loss. Jackie Bradley Jr went 0 for 2 before Brock Holt was called on to pinch hit for him. In April through 23 games, JBJ batted .213… Month of May has been a lot worse, just 3 for 35 (.086 avg).

In the month of April, Porcello was in his 2016 Cy Young form or even better. In May, it started off just fine with a one run, 6 inning showing. But his last two starts have been disastrous, giving up 10 runs in 11.1 innings. After starting the year giving up no home runs in his first 5 starts, he has now given up 4 homers in his last 4 starts.

Dylan Bundy takes the ball for the Orioles, and he has he’s the definition of an up & down season!! In his first 5 starts, he posted a 1.42 ERA. Then his next 3 starts, he became Mr. Hyde.

0-3, 19.00 ERA — 9 innings, 14 Hits, 22 Runs (19 ER), 4 Walks, 8 Ks

But for a much needed boost of confidence, he rebounded to a 7 inning shutout performance against the Rays. Helping him in that start was his offense scoring 17 Runs. He has pitched better against the Red Sox at Fenway, opposed to Camden Yards, so here’s hoping that won’t be a factor in tonight’s game.
