Texas Rangers vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’ll stay with the Orioles. Povich had a spotty outing in his last start versus Cleveland, giving up three earned on seven hits and a walk in 5.2 innings for a loss. Povich had just one earned in his previous 10.2 innings over two starts, though. As for Lorenzen, he’s got five earned in 11.0 innings over his last pair.

On Friday the O’s were pretty quiet on offense for most of the night. Colton Cowser (solo homer) and Gunnar Henderson provided the only two RBI. If Baltimore can get another pitching performance like Friday’s however, the bats can remain quiet in game two.
