Beautiful Camden Yards will play host to a Wednesday night MLB battle between the Los Angeles Angels and the Baltimore Orioles. The Angels (63-64) have split their last ten games and trail Boston by nine games for the final AL Wild Card spot. Last night, Los Angeles OF Joe Adell had two hits and drove in four runs during a 14-8 slugfest victory against Baltimore.
All-Star right-hander Shohei Ohtani (8-1 2.79 ERA) will make his 19th start of the season for the Angels. Through 100 innings of work, Ohtani has fanned 120 batters and owns a solid 1.06 WHIP.
The Baltimore Orioles have lost 19 games in a row and own the worst overall record in the majors. On Tuesday, Baltimore SP Spenser Watkins (2-6) was tagged for eight runs in two innings and took the loss. 1B Ryan Mouncastle hit two solo shots in a losing effort for the Orioles, who fell to 38-86 on the season.
Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde has yet to name a starting pitcher for this matchup. The Orioles lack quality options on a staff that ranks last in the majors with a 5.79 team ERA.
