orioles-logoNew York Mets (33-30 Road: 15-19)  at Baltimore Orioles (28-37 Home: 20-17) 7:05 pm

Livan Hernandez (5-1 4.33) vs. Jason Berken (1-3 7.32)

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Orioles play the rubber game of the series before the team comes home to face the reigning American League champion Rays. The weather forecast is good for Baltimore tonight so there won’t be a problem getting the game in. Hernandez was rocked by the Yankees in his last start for 6 runs in 5.1 innings. But he’s been up and down so it’s difficult to know what to expect. There hasn’t been a lot of consistency. Berken is a rookie right-hander making his fifth career start. His first two starts were pretty good but he’s gotten beat up in his last two starts. The Orioles have lost 3 of the 4 games that he’s started.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
