The Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Busch Stadium. These two teams have split the series so far. In the first game, it was the Orioles that won 5-3, but in the second game, the Cardinals won 10-1. 

The Cardinals sit with a 17-13 record overall, and on Wednesday it was again a good offense that led them to an easy victory. The Cardinals had lost three games in a row before the victory in the last game. In the previous two losses, the Cardinals only scored six runs total. The strength of the team overall has been the pitching and they are giving up only 3.43 runs per game. The top hitter has been Nolan Arenado and he has hit seven home runs and driven in 25 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Orioles who sit with a 13-18 record overall and they have been playing a little better baseball as of late. The Orioles had won three games in a row before losing on Wednesday. During that three-game win streak the Orioles gave up six runs total. The top offensive player for the Orioles has been Ryan Mountcastle who has hit four home runs and driven in 16 RBIs.

On the mound for the Cardinals is Jordan Hicks who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 3.78. In his last start against the Giants he went 4.1 innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

The Orioles are 5-1 in their last six games on grass. The under is 4-0 in the Orioles last four interleague games. The over is 3-0-1 in the Orioles last four road games against a right-handed starter. 

Jordan Hicks hasn’t gotten a ton of run support this season, but that will change in this game. The Cardinals scored 10 runs and they will continue running up the score here. Look for Hicks to only give up two or three runs, and that will be enough for the Cardinals to get the job done. Back the Cardinals on the run line.
