Thankfully as the Sox offense squandered mutiple chances to rally for a W, the Yankees offense had an even harder time getting shut out by the Mets 2-0. The Sox are 1-3 in their last 4 games (vs struggling teams), look to right the ship as they take on another struggling team in Baltimore. How bad are the Orioles this season? They are on pace to finish the season, 62 games back of 1st place. The most games back in organization history was when they were the St Louis Browns, finishing 64.5 games back in the summer of 1939.

Steven Wright takes the mound for the Sox in his 2nd start of the season. Last Tuesday’s start vs the Detroit Tigers was a rousing success, 7 shutout innings while allowing just 2 hits and striking out 6. As the offense works out the kinks of current offensive woes, Wright will build off of that solid start. He has been a better pitcher against the Orioles at Camden Yards, as he has when in Fenway.

Dylan Bundy takes the ball for the Orioles, just coming off of a 7 shut out inning performance vs the Mets. Bundy’s ERA sits at an okay 4.04 ERA. But a good portion of the Runs he has given up this year came in a flat out brutal 3 game stretch from April 26 to May 8th.

(0-3, 19.00 ERA) — 9 innings, 23 Hits, 22 Runs (19 ER), 9 HRs, 4 Walks, 8 Ks

Bundy has bounced back nicely in his last 5 starts. Good to see for the Orioles brass, as he could be part of a trade package to a contending team.

(3-2, 2.57 ERA) — 35 innings, 23 Hits, 10 Runs, 10 Walks, 40 Ks
