The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Orioles have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Orioles have lost seven of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 45 hits and 25 RBI while Chris Davis and Manny Machado have combined for 37 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have split their last six games on their home field. Miguel Gonzalez takes the hill, and he’s 4-2 with a 2.93 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA and two strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 9-3 in their last 12 games following an off day and 2-6 in Walkers last 8 starts. The Orioles are 1-5 in their last 6 games following an off day and 23-10 in Gonzalezs last 33 home starts. The Mariners are 3-9 in the last 12 meetings in Baltimore and 6-15 in the last 21 meetings overall.
Gonzalez has been money when taking the mound at home, and the Mariners haven't had much success on the road. I like Baltimore to win this game.
