Orioles Adore Their Trips To Comerica Park

The Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers kicked off their series in style when the two teams combined for 24 runs at Comerica Park on Tuesday. However, the O’s ultimately won and have now gone 7-2 SU in their past nine games in the Motor City. Can the Orioles continue their dominant play at Comerica Park in Game 2 of their three-game series with the Tigers?

Shark Bites
  • Victor Martinez is 12-for-34 with 4 home runs and 12 RBIs in his career against Ubaldo Jimenez.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Tigers' last 11 games after consecutive losses.
  • The Orioles are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games with Ubaldo Jimenez as the starting pitcher.

During his 11-year career, Ubaldo Jimenez has started against the Tigers 21 times, more than any other team in the MLB. That’s not to say the experience has proven to be a great asset with the righty posting a 5.49 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP in his career against the Tigers. Jimenez continues to flash some of the ability that once made him a sought-after commodity but those instances are few and far between.

Reigning AL Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer will make his eighth start of the season Wednesday. All seven of his previous outings this season have been quality starts and Fulmer has surrendered more than four hits just twice. The righty struggled against the Orioles last season with a 4.76 ERA in two starts.
