Pick

Baltimore lost their seven game winning streak on Sunday afternoon, but they still lead the AL East by a few games over Tampa Bay. The Cardinals have played well recently, but they are only 32-40 on the road this season. Baltimore is starting John Means, who is making his season debut for the Orioles. St. Louis is starting Dakota Hudson, who has allowed 5 earned runs in two of his last three starts, with both of the poor outings coming on the road. I like Baltimore to win this game by at least two runs.
