Orioles lineup vs. Mets

The Orioles close out their homestand, and attempt to go 6-1 in June, with Matt Harvey again facing his original team.

Harvey received a warm ovation at Citi Field on May 12 and allowed seven runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings. The rematch is tonight at Camden Yards.

Cedric Mullins has an RBI in a career-high three straight games. He brings an eight-game hitting streak into tonight, going 17-for-32 (.531) with nine extra-base hits.

Freddy Galvis is 7-for-14 in his last three games. He’s batting cleanup tonight.

Austin Wynns is catching Harvey.

Maikel Franco has hit 20 home runs against the Mets, the most against any opponent. He became the sixth player last night to reach the second deck, joining the Angels’ Rex Hudler in 1995, the Orioles’ Mark Reynolds in 2011, the Orioles’ Manny Machado in 2017, the Indians’ Edwin Encarnación in 2017 and the Mets’ Pete Alonso in 2020.

Taijuan Walker faced the Orioles on May 12 and held them to one run and four hits in seven innings. But they’ve tallied 28 runs and 37 hits in their last two games.

The Orioles have registered double-digit hits in three-straight games for the first time since Sept. 22-24, 2020 and double-digit runs in back-to-back games for the first time since June 28-29, 2019.
