The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Orioles have scored 28 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Orioles have won six of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 29 hits and 18 RBI while Chris Davis and Manny Machado have combined for 24 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won four of their last five games on their home field. Chris Tillman takes the hill, and he’s 2-2 with a 7.58 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Tillman is 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. a team with a losing record and 1-4 in Sales last 5 road starts. The Orioles are 38-16 in their last 54 home games and 43-21 in Tillmans last 64 starts. The White Sox are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Baltimore and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
This game is going to be quite weird given the circumstances. That's why I'm siding with the home team, as they're the ones that should be a little more comfortable. The Orioles also have Tillman on the mound, who is usually money on his home field.
