Baltimore Orioles vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Orioles here. I had a bit of a time getting there, as the Orioles have really struggled against right-handed pitching in the month of May. However, Mike Clevinger is a pitcher I really don’t go out of my way to back as he’s given up a ton of hard contact, and this feels like a spot where Baltimore’s offense can break out and come alive once again. I think the Orioles get the job done in convincing fashion here. Give me Baltimore.
