O's Starting Pitching Has Been Leading to Fireworks

Baltimore might just have the worst starting pitching in baseball and although a few of the guys in the rotation have had good starts recently, it hasn’t improved. Ubaldo Jimenez (3-3, 6.48 ERA) will take the bump for the O’s on America’s birthday so those in attendance could be treated to some premature fireworks at Miller Park tonight.

SHARK BITES
  • The Brewers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The Orioles have given up 5 or more runs in 20 of their last 24 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the O's last 8 games with Jimenez as the starting pitcher.

Although Jimenez has pitch marginally better away from Camden Yards this year, the numbers are not pretty. He owns a 6.02 ERA after six trips to hostile mounds in 2017 where the Dominican has given up eight home runs and he’s the main reason the Orioles will come into this July 4 affair as the pretty significant betting underdog.

Taking the rock for the Brewers will be Jimmy Nelson (6-4, 3.43 ERA). The fifth-year righty is in the midst of his best season as a pro and has enjoyed plenty of success at his home park, posting an ERA of 2.64 in nine starts in Milwaukee.

The Brew Crew has now won four of its last five games and extended its lead in the NL Central where Milwaukee is the only team above .500.
