The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Orioles have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Orioles have won five of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 162 hits and 72 RBI while Adam Jones and Chris Davis have combined for 184 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won four of their last five home games. Ubaldo Jimenez takes the hill, and he’s 11-9 with a 4.22 ERA and 146 strikeouts this season. Jimenez is 2-3 with a 8.06 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. a team with a losing record and 8-0 in Kellys last 8 starts. The Orioles are 1-6 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in Jimenezs last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings.
The Red Sox are finally starting to play with some consistency and have won Kelly's last eight starts. The O's are still very inconsistent and I don't exactly trust Jimenez. I like Boston and the plus money.
