The Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles meet Monday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Atlanta Braves look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Braves have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Braves have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Braves with 57 hits and 43 RBI while Marcell Ozuna and Dansby Swanson have combined for 111 hits and 69 RBI. Touki Toussaint gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 7.89 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. This will be Toussaint’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Orioles have scored three runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Orioles are 0-16 this season when scoring three or less runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 52 hits and 15 RBI while Renato Nunez and Jose Iglesias have combined for 82 hits and 40 RBI. Jorge Lopez gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 6.38 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Lopez’s second career game against the Braves.
The Braves are 5-0 in their last 5 interleague games, 7-1 in their last 8 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Orioles are 9-4 in their last 13 interleague games, 53-110 in their last 163 home games and 125-268 in their last 393 overall. The over is 10-2-3 in Braves last 15 overall. The Braves are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings.
Touki Toussaint has allowed 13 earned runs and 15 hits in his last 19 innings while Jorge Lopez has allowed five earned runs and nine hits in his last 9.2 innings. The Braves should be favored in this game for obvious reasons, as they're coming off a hot week and the Orioles are back to being... Well, the Orioles. However, both of these pitchers have been hit hard this season and crooked numbers happen often. Expect some fireworks.
Give me the over 10.5 runs.
