MLB: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 3:05 EST

The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox will conclude a three-game series when they meet again at Oriole Park on Wednesday afternoon. Boston had been 1-3 in its last four contests before taking the first two of this set. Baltimore’s recent setbacks have extended its losing streak to six games.

Sale getting the start

The Red Sox will have a decided advantage on the mound in their quest to finish off a three-game sweep at the Orioles on Wednesday. Star lefty Chris Sale, who limited the Orioles to two hits while striking out eight in five innings earlier in the year, goes for the Red Sox as they aim for an eighth consecutive victory at Camden Yards. Andrew Benintendi homered and forced in a run with a walk to help Boston pick up a 6-4 victory over Baltimore on Tuesday night, giving the club a 23-11 record both at home and on the road. Mookie Betts, the top vote-getter in the current all-star balloting, returned from an abdominal strain in the series opener before sitting out the second game but is expected to return for this one.

Left-hander Chris Sale (5-4, 2.83 ERA) is taking the mound for Boston on Wednesday. Sale has lost three straight starts but he was solid in the most recent one, tossing eight innings of one-run ball while striking out 10 in a 1-0 loss to the  White Sox. He has a 2.68 ERA in eight road starts while limiting opponents to a .188 average. The six-time all-star is 4-1 with a 2.29 ERA in nine career games (six starts) at Camden Yards.

Machado returns

The Orioles got Manny Machado back Tuesday from a one-game absence but they left 13 runners on base while losing a sixth consecutive game. Machado is 6-for-16 with a home run and two doubles against Sale. Left-hander Zach Britton, who had 135 saves over the previous four years, made his season debut on Tuesday after recovering from Achilles’ surgery.

Baltimore originally planned to start veteran Andrew Cashner but he was placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Tuesday’s game with back soreness, forcing the club to turn to Yefry Ramirez for his major-league debut opposite Sale. Ramirez is 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA in 12 starts for Triple-A Norfolk, recording 63 strikeouts and allowing 53 hits in 60.1 innings. The 24-year-old was with Baltimore for one day in April but did not appear in a game. He is 38-30 with a 3.55 mark in seven seasons in the minors, going 15-3 at the Double-A level last year while splitting the season between the Yankees and Baltimore systems.

Benintendi is batting .412 with three homers and 13 RBIs in nine games against Baltimore this year. The Red Sox drew a season-high 10 walks in Tuesday’s victory. Boston is 45-21 in its last 66 overall, 41-20 in its last 61 on the road, 36-15 in its last 51 against the American League East, 11-4 in Sale’s last 15 starts against losing opponents, 4-0 in his last four starts against Baltimore, and 10-1 in the last 11 meetings between the two teams. The Orioles are 23-65 in their last 88 overall, 0-7 in their last seven at home, 15-37 in their last 32 against the American League East, 8-18 in their last 26 against left-handed starters, 18-40 in their last 58 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, 2-9 in Cashner’s last 11 starts, 1-6 in his last seven home starts, and 0-6 in their last six at home against the Red Sox.
