Baltimore Orioles Recap

The Baltimore Orioles come into this one looking to push for the four-game sweep after a 5-3 win over the White Sox on Saturday. The win helped the Orioles get at least a series win over Chicago, bouncing back from Baltimore being swept for the first time in two years at the hands of the Cardinals.

Orioles Starting To Warm Up At The Plate

Gunnar Henderson leads the Orioles with 17 home runs, 37 RBIs and 4 triples but also has a team-high 50 strikeouts in addition to 7 stolen bases. Adley Rutschman has a team-high 59 hits with 9 home runs and 29 RBIs in addition to 7 doubles while Anthony Santander and Colton Cowser each have 11 doubles and Ryan Mountcastle has a team-high 13 doubles. Cedric Mullins has also contributed a team-high 10 stolen bases as well this season.

Why the Baltimore Orioles will win

  • The White Sox have failed to cover the run line each of their last seven games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The Orioles have covered the run line in each of their last seven games against AL Central opponents following a road win.

Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox will try to salvage something from this series after their loss to the Orioles on Saturday. The loss to the Orioles meant another series loss after splitting a rain-shortened series with the Blue Jays and getting swept by the Yankees last weekend.

White Sox Need Better Production Offensively

Gavin Sheets leads the White Sox with a .242 batting average and a .352 OBP along with a team-high 13 doubles and 18 RBIs while Andrew Vaughn and Andrew Benintendi each have 3 home runs and 17 RBIs with Vaughn logging 10 doubles as well as a team-high 37 hits. Paul DeJong also has a team-high 7 home runs and 17 RBIs with a team-high 56 strikeouts as well this season.

  • The Orioles have lost three of their last four day games against the White Sox following a win.
  • The Orioles have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six day games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The White Sox have led after 5 innings in each of their last five day games against the Orioles.

Baltimore Orioles vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the under in this one. This is actually shaping up to be a pretty decent starting pitching matchup, as Crochet has been arguably the best or one of the best starting arms they’ve had this season and Bradish has looked every bit as good as advertised in his limited action this year. The Orioles have been better against lefties, but Crochet’s struck out a ton of batters this season and I don’t think Bradish will have any issues against this soft-hitting White Sox lineup. Give me the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
