The Birds logged eight hits and walked eight times with Manny Machado leading the way with pair of homers and three RBI’s and three runs while Nolan Reimold singled in a run. Left hander Wei-Yin Chen opens the series on the mound against the rival Yankees on Saturday. Chen was an 8-0 loser at Boston last time out with a pair of runs scored on five hits in 5.2 innings.

The over is 10-2 in Baltimore’s last 12 games and the under is 8-2 in Chen’s last 10 Saturday starts and is 17-7-2 in Chen’s last 26 starts versus New York. Chen has generally been dependable and more so then Nova so I’ll take the Orioles…
