Oakland Athletics vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’ll stay with the Orioles in this one. Irvin has been good over his last pair of starts. In those two, he’s given up two earned on 11.1 innings on 10 hits and two walks combined. Irvin is 1-0 in that time. As for Sears, he’s given up just one earned run in his last 17.1 innings over three starts. Sears should be good to go here, and we’ll have a lower-scoring game initially if both guys are on point.

In the Friday game, Baltimore was out-hit 7-6 and couldn’t score after the fourth inning. Ryan O’Hearn (two hits) and Cedric Mullins (solo homer) had the only RBI. The O’s used five players out of the bullpen in game one, so Irvin will need to be on point Saturday.
