Today’s matchup is between the Minnesota Twins (22-32) and the Baltimore Orioles (18-37). The Twins have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Orioles have won 0 of their last 5 games.

The Twins are starting Randy Dobnak (RHP), on the mound who is 1-4 on the season pitching a 6.49 ERA, 4.33 FIP, .327 wOBA, K% of 16.5%, BB% of 5.2%, 93.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.37 WHIP in 26.1 innings pitched.

The Orioles are starting Matt Harvey (RHP), who is 3-6 on the season with a 6.84 ERA, 4.37 FIP, .367 wOBA, K% of 18.3%, BB% of 7.0%, 89.5 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.64 WHIP in 48.2 innings pitched.

The Twins are 24th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Orioles are 10th.

On the hitting side, the Twins have a .320 wOBA and a .315 OBP. The Orioles have a .297 wOBA and a .295 OBP. The Twins have 72 HRs this season while the Orioles have 55 HRs.

These starting pitchers are a combined 4-10 & Matt Harvey has a 1.64 WHIP on the season. The question is can the Orioles after breaking their 14 games losing streak yesterday continue their success today? I don't believe so as the Twins have the Power to capitalize off Harvey's bad pitching.
