The Baltimore Orioles face the Los Angeles Angels on Friday, April 22nd, 2022 at Angel Stadium for game one of a three-game series. 

The Baltimore Orioles were only able to take one game on the road in a four-game series at the Oakland A's. The O's were looking to build up some momentum after taking two of three against their AL East rivals in the Yankees, but the A's had other plans as the Orioles suffered three more road losses, making Baltimore's road record 1-6 by the end of the four-game set. The Orioles are 4-9 overall this season, but there are reasons to be optimistic. Baltimore owned one of the weakest pitching rotations and bullpens in 2021, but so far in 2022, the team has made big improvements. The Orioles own a sub-3.00 team ERA, and although the offense has gotten off to a slow start, it is promising to see the pitching staff make strides in the right direction. 

The Los Angeles Angels were off on Thursday after wrapping up an exciting series with the Houston Astros in which the Halos were able to take the final two games of a three-game series with their big rivals. The Angels are now 8-5 overall this season and the offense is on a bit of a roll as the team has scored six or more runs in four of their last five games.

The Baltimore Orioles are set to bring left-hander Bruce Zimmermann to the mound to take on the Angels. Zimmermann is one of the O's starters that have been great progress as he owns a 0.00 ERA after not allowing a single earned run through his first 9.0 innings of work. Zimmermann will have his toughest test of the season thus far against a red-hot Angels lineup on Friday. 

The Los Angeles Angels are projected to bring lefty Reid Detmers to the bump for the first game of this series. Detmers has not fared too well in 2022 thus far, as he owns an 8.59 ERA through his first 7.1 innings of the season. The Angels will look to see Detmers have a quality start here against an Orioles lineup that has struggled quite a bit to start the year. 

I like the Angels on the run-line here, as I am sure how much longer this Orioles pitching staff can keep performing at this level. This is virtually the same O's pitching staff as the 2021 staff, and that made for one of the worst in the MLB. I think the Angels' bats are too much for Baltimore to handle here.
