Arizona Diamondbacks vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’ll stay with the O’s here. Baltimore should be fine with Kremer on the mound. Over his last three starts combined Kremer has four earned runs in 18.1 total innings on eight hits and six walks. He’s 3-0 in that time. As for Gallen, he had eight earned in a 10.0-inning span late last month but came back with 6.0 clean frames versus the Reds in a win on May 7.

In the Saturday matchup the Orioles got solo home runs from both Gunnar Henderson (two hits) and Anthony Santander. Jordan Westburg added two RBI and four hits in a great evening. I expect Sunday’s matchup to be close as well, with the O’s staying hot on a win.
