The Baltimore Orioles look to keep rolling after winning five of their last six games. The Orioles have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Orioles have won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 115 hits and 54 RBI while Adam Jones and Chris Davis have combined for 120 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won four of their last five home games. Kevin Gausman takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 4.20 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Gausman is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 6-14 in their last 20 vs. a team with a winning record and 8-1 in Sanchezs last 9 starts. The Orioles are 41-20 in their last 61 during game 3 of a series and 3-9 in Gausmans last 12 starts. The Tigers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
Sanchez has allowed four or more runs in four of his last six starts, while Gausman is coming off one of his better starts of the season. I like Baltimore to win this game.
