The Baltimore Orioles look to build on their solid four-game winning streak. The Orioles have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four straight games. The Baltimore Orioles offense has caught fire recently, and they’ve won six straight games when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 117 hits, Mark Trumbo has 73 RBI and Jonathan Schoop has 17 home runs. Yovani Gallardo takes the hill, and he’s 3-2 with a 5.69 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Gallardo is 0-5 with a 6.08 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. American League East. The Orioles are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. National League West and 5-2 in Gallardos last 7 starts. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
We have two red hot offenses that are consistently putting up crooked numbers, and we have two pitchers with ERAs over six. That to me sound like a formula for a lot of runs to be scored. Give me the over in this spot.
