Shane’s Free Pick

When Rodriguez starts against a team with a winning record, the Tigers really struggle, and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Orioles offense is elite, and guys like Mountcastle are pacing the team. The Tigers don’t have the offense to keep up, and that will be the difference here. Back the Orioles on the money line.
