The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Orioles have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Orioles have won nine straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 56 hits and 26 RBI while Jimmy Paredes and Chris Davis have combined for 54 RBI.

The Rays are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League East and 0-5 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record. The Orioles are 48-23 in their last 71 home games and 5-2 in Gonzalezs last 7 starts as a favorite. The Rays are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Baltimore and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Orioles have played some good baseball as of late on their home field. I also have more faith in Gonzalez to get the job done here.
