The Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers play game two of their series early Friday night.
The Baltimore Orioles look to snap back-to-back losses after winning their first seven games. The Orioles have allowed four or more runs in four straight games and have lost six of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. The one constant with the Baltimore Orioles is that their bats continue to produce at a high level. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 16 hits, Mark Trumbo has six RBI and Chris Davis has four home runs. Vance Worley gets the nod, and he’s 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Worley’s second career game against the Rangers.

The Texas Rangers look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Rangers have produced 23 runs in their last four games and are 5-1 this season when scoring more than three runs. The Texas Rangers are a high-scoring team and need their bats to continue to produce in order to win games. Adrian Beltre leads Texas with 13 hits, Prince Fielder has 10 RBI and Delino DeShields has one home run. Martin Perez takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 3.65 ERA and three strikeouts this season. Perez is 2-1 with a 4.34 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 4-9 in their last 13 road games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series. The Rangers are 11-4 in their last 15 during game 2 of a series and 0-5 in Perezs last 5 starts. The Orioles are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Texas.
The Rangers are really hitting the ball well right now, and it's been a while since the Orioles have been able to win in Texas. I'm also not a huge fan of Worley. I like the home team here and the cheap price.
