4/13: O’s (7-0) @ Red Sox (3-4)

 
Tonight, the Orioles will go for their 8th straight victory in Boston. We’re expecting a chilly night in Boston, but sunny, with temps hovering in the low to mid 40’s by first pitch at 7:10.

Pitching Matchup:

Ubaldo Jiminez (1-0) will go for the O’s tonight. Ubaldo went 7 solid innings on 4/7 vs. Minnesota, en route to his first victory this season. Last season Ubaldo posted a 1-1 record vs. Boston, in 2 starts. His win came on 9/15/15, where he went 5 IP, and gave up 4 runs in 6 hits. 

For the Red Sox, it’s 27 year old Joe Kelly. Joe was roughed up on 4/8 against the Blue Jays, going only 3 innings, allowing 7 runs, on 7 hits in a no-decision. In his career, he posts a 1-2 record, with a 5.40 ERA in 5 starts vs. the Orioles. 

Another offensive night?

The majority of Orioles batters either haven’t seen Kelly, or have yet to record a hit against him. Heres a quick glimpse at the O’s best offensive numbers vs. Kelly:

  • Davis .571 (4-7), 2B
  • Hardy .500 (3-6) 
  • Alvarez .267 (4-15) HR, 2B
