Sacrifice fly and Dylan Bundy are enough for Orioles to top Mets

Injured Yoenis Cespedes may be ready for New York Mets versus New York Yankees series Mets notes on Wheeler and Matz excelling, and Reyes' potential departure

Cobb (2-7), who signed with the Orioles on March 21 and entered Tuesday with a 6.80 ERA in his first nine starts, didn't allow a hit until the fifth and ended up surrendering the one run on two hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings. NY has dropped seven straight at Citi Field, its worst home slump since an eight-game slide in 2013. He participated in some drills Wednesday before the series finale against the Baltimore Orioles.

After falling behind in the count 0-1, Machado lifted the next pitch to deep center to drive in Baltimore's run and send the Mets to their sixth straight loss.

While the Mets run the risk of giving up too much for what could be nothing more than a rental, the possibility of pairing Machado with a healthy Yoenis Cespedes could thrust NY back into contention in the National League East. Machado is slashing.327/.398/.633 with 18 home runs, 47 RBIs and 32 runs scored, while Jones (.284/.303/.474) is up to 10 homers, 28 RBIs and 25 runs scored.

The Mets mounted their lone threat against Cobb in the fifth, when Jay Bruce delivered a leadoff single for their first hit and went to third on Kevin Plawecki's double.

The Orioles are 2-14 in their last 16 interleague games.

"Dylan's a good pitcher, period", Manager Buck Showalter said. "We know he can he can get through an at-bat OK".

Orioles: RHP Dylan Bundy (3-7, 4.46 ERA) has struck out 20 with one walk in his last two starts, a win over the White Sox and a loss to Washington.

After Nimmo singled starting the eighth, he was doubled up by Bleier when Asdrubal Cabrera popped up a bunt.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway wouldn't rule out the slugger's return despite skipping a minor league rehabilitation assignment. "We just need to put it all together and go on a stretch", said Wheeler.

Frazier expects a playoff atmosphere for the weekend series against the Yankees at Citi Field.

The Baltimore Orioles are pretty much out of the playoff race already as they are now 23 games out of first in the American League East.

Orioles: RHP Darren O'Day (elbow) walked three while getting just two outs for Class A Frederick in his first rehab appearance.

Mets: C Devin Mesoraco (right hamstring tightness) missed his third straight game.

The New York Mets' championship window was all-too-brief and already closed.

Baltimore had its Thursday game and Sunday game against the Yankees postponed due to rain, chopping a four-game series down to two which the O's lost 4-1 and 8-5. I like Baltimore as a small underdog to keep the Mets' losing skid going. He has allowed one run or none in each of his last eight starts.
