Ryan Mountcastle had a strong game finishing with two hits, one run and three RBIs. The Orioles are averaging 6.4 goals while their defense is giving up 5.8 goals per game. The offense is ranked 5th while the pitching is ranked 23rd. In this game they are going to need the pitching to step up and slow down the Rangers offense.

Rangers Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who looked impressive against the Philadelphia Phillies in the first series, but in the last two games against the Texas Rangers, they have really struggled. The pitching has given up nine runs but more disappointing has been the pitching that has only managed two runs. In this game they need to give their pitching staff some run support to take the pressure off. On the mound for the Rangers Jacob deGrom who sits wtih a 0-0 record and an ERA of 12.37. In his first start against the Phillies he went 3.2 innings giving up six hits and five runs.

The under is 4-1 in the Orioles last five games against a team with a winning record. The under is 6-1 in Orioles last 7 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.

Shane’s Free Pick

deGrom struggled in his first start of the season, and he’s going to struggle again here. The Orioles offense has been strong this season averaging 6.4 runs per game and they are going to get over their season average here. The Rangers also will struggle to give deGrom run support, and that will be the difference. Back the Orioles.
