Baltimore Orioles vs Seattle Mariners Prediction 

Baltimore comes into this matchup after a nice series win against Texas over the weekend and they have caught the Yankees in the race for the AL East. The Orioles are 24-14 on the road, while the Mariners are 28-14 at home. Seattle has been very good at picking up wins at home this season, but their offense is very low scoring. The Mariners are starting George Kirby, who has been great this season, but is going up against the best scoring lineup in baseball. The Orioles are going with Grayson Rodriguez, who has also been very good and is already at nine wins. This should be a very entertaining series, but I don’t trust the Seattle offense to keep pace with Baltimore. My Baltimore Orioles vs Seattle Mariners prediction is for the Orioles to win.
