The Baltimore Orioles will be shooting for another win versus the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.
The Detroit Tigers seem to know that the American League Central title was out of reach so maybe giving some arms a look is what they will do going forward. The Tigers fell at Baltimore 6-2 on Saturday as the potent Detroit offense never got going. Starter Anibal Sanchez was charged with all six runs on nine hits including two bombs over 6.2 frames which was too much for their six hits to compete with. Nick Castellanos cracked a two run homer that scored James McCann while Ian Kinsler went 3-4. Daniel Norris makes his 6th start of the season and first since April. Norris has struggled with his control and has gone 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA with 12 walks and 23 hits allowed in 23.1 innings.

The Baltimore Orioles appear to be poised to make a run at the Yankees in the American League East but will they stay hot? The Orioles kept the wins coming in for another day and have won seven of eight behind strong pitching and hitting. Kevin Gausman held the Tigers offense to both runs on four hits through seven innings of work. The Birds didn’t waste the effort with Manny Machado going solo and scoring twice while Caleb Joseph went 2-3 with a homer and three RBI’s.Ubaldo Jimenez looks for consecutive victories when he takes the hill against the Tigers for the second time in 2015. Jimenez defeated Atlanta 7-3 with two runs scored on four hits and three BB in seven frames.
The over is 7-1 in Detroit’s last 8 Sunday games and is 19-7-1 in their last 27 road games while the Tigers are 3-8 in their last 11 road games. The over is 5-2-1 in Baltimore’s last 8 games as a favorite while the Orioles are 66-32 in their last 98 home games and are 11-1 in Jimenez’s last 12 home starts. Detroit are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. Jimenez has been very tough at home so hopefully that trend continues…
