WEDNESDAY NIGHT MLB TOP PLAY #5
Atlanta Braves (28-20) at Baltimore Orioles (21-26)

The Braves start Cole Hamels in this one making his season debut after dealing with some injuries throughout spring straining and summer camp, so it’s hard to see what we’re getting here. However, I’m expecting Hamels to be somewhat rusty even going 3-4 innings in the start. Keegan Akin goes for the Orioles here and Akin’s been alright for the O’s, beating the Yankees already once this season before getting roughed up in his last start. I think the pressure is mounting for Atlanta with the playoffs around the corner and a patchwork rotation. I just think there’s some value to be had with the Orioles on Wednesday, so I’ll take it and make the Baltimore Orioles my premium pick for this game.
