Red Sox, Orioles Open 4-Game Series Monday Night On ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

The Red Sox will play host to the Orioles Monday night live on ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball presented by USAA.

Monday night’s game is the first in a four-game series between the American League East opponents.  It replaces the network’s previously scheduled Indians-Tigers matchup.  The game will be simulcast on television and online via ESPN Deportes, WatchESPN and the ESPN app.

Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET and is subject to local blackout restrictions in each teams’ markets.

Chris Sale is expected to get the start for Boston, though mlb.com has Rick Porcello scheduled as the starter for the Red Sox.  Dylan Bundy is expected to take the mound for the Orioles.

Monday night’s series opener between the Sox and the “Orange Birds” is certain to be an interesting one, going by the numbers.  Baltimore is currently in the midst of a two-game skid, but is 6-4 in its last 10 games.  The team’s weakness is that it has performed better at home (8 – 3) so far this season than on the road (6 – 5).

By comparison, Boston has also performed far better at home (8 – 5) so far this season than on the road (4 – 6) but not quite as impressively as Baltimore.  Boston is 4 – 6 in its last 10 games and looking to bounce back Sunday from a 7 – 4 loss against the Chicago Cubs.

Win or lose in that series-ending game, Boston will be hungry for another “W.”  Looking at the overall picture painted by those numbers, Monday night’s game could go to either team.

Cubs, Mets Open 3-Game Series Tonight On ESPN

Courtesy:  ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

Tonight on ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball presented by USAA the Mets and Cubs face off in an interdivisional matchup.

The NL Central-leading Cubs continue their home-stand tonight when the team opens a three-game series against the Mets (NL East) on ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball presented by USAA.  The game is the opener in a three-game series between the teams.  John Lester (9 – 4) is expected to get the start for the Cubs while Steven Matz (7 – 5) is slated to get the start for the Mets.  Lester’s last time on the mound was more than a week ago on July 9th against Pittsburgh.  The Pirates won that game in dominating fashion doubling up on the Cubs 12 – 6.  Lester threw three innings in the game, allowing 5 runs on 4 hits, 5 earned runs, 3 walks, and 2 home runs.  He struck out only 2 of 16 batters that he faced.  Teammate Adam Warren, who was credited with the loss, didn’t fare much better.  Warren only threw 2 innings but allowed 7 more runs on 5 hits in that short time along with 7 earned runs, 3 walks, and 2 home runs.  He struck out only 2 of 14 batters.

Steven Matz’s last time on the mound was roughly a week ago against the Nationals on July 10th.  The Nats won that game 3 – 2.  Matz took the loss in the game.  He threw 7 innings, allowing 3 runs on 6 hits along the way along with 3 earned runs, 4 walks, and 1 home run, striking out 5 of 29 batters faced.

Even with both pitchers numbers in consideration either team could win this game and series.  Chicago is 28 – 15 at home so far on the season while New York is 23 – 22 on the road so far this season.  However, the Cubs are 4- 6 in their last ten games and the Mets 5 – 5 in their last 10 games.  The Mets come into tonight’s game with some momentum, having picked up a 5 – 0 win against Philadelphia Sunday afternoon.  The Cubs come into tonight’s series opener licking its wounds after falling 4 – 1 against the Rangers on Sunday.  So each team will have its own motivation for a win tonight when the National League foes go under the lights.

Karl Ravech will have the call for the game tonight on ESPN.  He will be joined in the booth by analysts Dallas Braden and Eduardo Perez.  As an additional note the game will be blacked out in the Chicago market.  Coverage of the game is expected to begin at 7pm ET in all other markets.  More information on tonight’s game is available online now along with all of the latest MLB headlines at:
