Twins vs Orioles Prediction

I’ll lean toward the Orioles. This one’s a coin flip, though. Both pitchers need a good showing after rough efforts in their latest starts. Irvin gave up five earned in 5.0 innings versus the Red Sox in his last outing on April 10. As for Varland, he’s coming of six earned in 5.0 innings versus the Dodgers on April 9.

Baltimore’s offense has done well lately. They’ve scored five or more runs in five of the last six games. Another good outing from the bats should give the O’s an edge, but the team needs a solid start from Irvin as well.
