For the first time in what feels like forever, things are trending in the right direction for the Orioles. They have won four out of five to begin June, and Bruce Zimmermann is back on the mound following two pretty solid starts.

They will now welcome in the first-place Mets for the second, and final, two-game series against them this season. The Mets took both games in the set played at Citi Field last month. Perhaps the Orioles can pull the reverse in the friendly confines of Camden Yards. For more info on the series at large, check out the preview posted on the site earlier today by yours truly.

In short, New York’s starter tonight, David Peterson, has struggled to minimize hard contact and recorded just one out in his most recent trip to the mound. But the Mets will be quick with the hook thanks to boasting the best bullpen in Major League Baseball. Not to mention they had an off day on Monday and were asked to throw just 2.1 innings on Sunday. Mets manager Luis Rojas will have all options available.
