Orioles Pick Up Big Win
The Orioles needed a win on Monday and they used three runs in the top of the 9th to secure the one run victory. In the last series against the Rays the Orioles were able to win two of the four games. The Orioles are averaging 5.08 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.27 runs per game. The offense is ranked 6th while the pitching staff is ranked 8th. On the mound for the Orioles will be Kyle Gibson who sits with a 14-9 record and an ERA of 4.98.
Astros Bullpen Struggles
The last series against the Kansas City Royals wasn’t a good one, and they really needed to beat up on the bad teams, not take a split. In the first game of this series the bullpen cost them the game. The Astros are averaging 5.17 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.35 runs per game. The offense is ranked 5th in the league while the pitching is ranked 11th. On the mound for the Astros will be Hunter Brown who sits with a 11-11 record and an ERA of 4.61.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Orioles are Astros both scored plenty o Monday, and it’s going to be no different in this game. Brown and Gibson have both had their issues at times and it’s going to be no different in this game. I especially expect Gibson is going to struggle here, and that will lead to this game going over the total. Back the over to cash here.
