Preview
Detroit at Baltimore
When: 1:05 PM ET, Monday, May 27, 2019
Where: Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland

The two coldest teams in the major leagues meet Monday when the Detroit Tigers visit Baltimore for the first of three games against the Orioles. The Tigers fell to 1-11 over their last 12 games with a 4-3 loss at the New York Mets on Sunday.

Nicholas Castellanos had a solo homer and a two-run single to provide all the offense for Detroit, which is last in the American League in runs and has been held to four or fewer in each defeat during the 1-11 slide. The Orioles dropped eight of their last nine and the past four setbacks have come by a total of six runs as the bullpen continues to falter. The Colorado Rockies rallied for two runs against three Baltimore pitchers in the bottom of the ninth Sunday afternoon to steal an 8-7 win. Gabriel Ynoa makes his first start of the year for the Orioles on Monday opposite Daniel Norris for the Tigers.

Norris allowed two runs over six innings with five strikeouts and no walks in a no-decision against Miami on Wednesday. The Tennessee native is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four career games (two starts) against the Orioles, all taking place in Baltimore. Sluggers Chris Davis and Trey Mancini are a combined 2-for-3 with two home runs and two walks against Norris.

Ynoa has made nine relief appearances since he was called up from Triple-A Norfolk on April 21, posting three outings of at least three innings.
