After getting cooled by the Atlanta Braves, things don’t get any easier for the Cincinnati Reds (41-37, 20-17 road), who open a three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles (47-29, 24-14 home).

The O’s own the 3rd-best record in baseball, and would be leading their division if not for the MLB-best Tampa Bay Rays. Baltimore is coming off a 3-2 win over the Mariners, and will be seeking their third straight win.

Cincinnati dropped consecutive decisions to the Braves, who own the 2nd-best mark in the bigs, putting a halt to their 12-game win streak. They’re tops in the NL Central, but would only rank fifth in the AL East.

This interleague set starts Monday (June 26) at 7:05pm ET from Oriole Park at Camden Yards. You can watch the game live on MLB Network.

Probable Pitchers

It’s an all-lefty battle Monday, as the Reds trot out first-year man Brandon Williamson, making his eighth career start.

He has only one decision on the year, but the Reds have picked up wins in six of his seven outings.

Last time out, he threw five innings of six-hit ball, giving up three earned runs, with no walks and five strikeouts, a game the Reds won over Colorado 5-4.

Williamson earned his first career win the start previous, scattering seven hits across five innings and striking out one in a 5-4 win over the Royals.

Williamson vs Irvin Stats

Brandon Williamson
VS
Cole Irvin
1-0 Record 1-3
5.40 ERA 7.71
1.39 WHIP 1.76
.327 OBA .378
2.08 SO/W Ratio 2.40

He’ll be up against O’s lefty Cole Irvin, who will be making his sixth start of the season.

The fifth-year pitcher last worked on Wednesday in relief, pitching an inning against the Rays, giving up two hits and one earned run in a game Baltimore lost 7-2.

Irvin is coming off a loss in his last start, giving up five hits, including three home runs, three earned runs and lasting just four innings in a 10-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

His longest outing this season is 5.1 innings — the only time he’s made it to that plateau — and he earned a 6-1 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Cincinnati and Baltimore Players to Look Out For

Despite the loss to Atlanta, it was quite a showing from rookie Matt McLain.

McLain laid waste to Braves’ pitching, going 4-for-5 with three doubles, a home run and five RBI, becoming the first Reds’ rook to have four extra-base hits in a game since Chris Sabo in 1988.

Another first-year man will look to get back to the business of mashing Monday. A day after hitting for the cycle — the youngest to do it in over 50 years — Elly De La Cruz went 0-for-5 against Atlanta with three strikeouts. The 21-year-old is currently second in the NL Rookie of the Year odds.

Cincy will have their hands full with red-hot Anthony Santander.

A day after picking up four hits, Santander went yard for the fifth time in six games, and also robbed Julio Rodríguez with a super catch, leaping over the right field wall to come down with the ball.

Left-fielder Austin Hayes is tied for third in hitting with a .318 average, with eight home runs and 31 RBI.

Reds vs Orioles Prediction

This should be a great matchup. Baltimore is tied for the 2nd-most home wins in the bigs, while the Reds, at 20-17, are one of the better road teams in the league.

Baltimore will be facing Williamson for the first time, and the lefty will be facing a potent lineup. Baltimore ranks 10th in scoring, seventh in slugging percentage (.425) and 10th in home runs with 94.

The Reds are 4-0 in their last four series openers, and 6-0 in their last six interleague games, but are 0-4 in their last four visits to Camden Yards.

Pick: Orioles ML (-136)
