The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Orioles have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Orioles have lost eight of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Adam Jones leads the O’s with 28 hits and 16 RBI while Manny Machado and Chris Davis have combined for 21 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles kind of need this series to get back on track after losing five straight before Saturday. Bud Norris gets the ball, and he’s 0-2 with a 17.42 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Norris is 1-2 with a 3.41 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series. The Orioles are 36-16 in their last 52 home games and 11-4 in Norris' last 15 starts. The under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings in Baltimore.
Bud Norris has just been awful to start the season and is a guy you can't trust until he turns things around. Considering the Red Sox have an explosive lineup, the value here is the road team with the cheap price.
