The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Orioles have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Orioles have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 56 hits and 26 RBI while Jimmy Paredes and Chris Davis have combined for 55 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won five of their last eight home games. Chris Tillman takes the hill, and he’s 2-6 with a 5.59 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Tillman is 5-7 with a 3.78 ERA and 61 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.
The Rays are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in Odorizzis last 4 starts. The Orioles are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Tillmans last 6 starts. The Orioles are 4-1 in Tillmans last 5 starts vs. Rays.
Tillman just hasn't done much good this season and the Orioles have been crazy inconsistent. I like the value of the Rays on the road and the plus money.
