The Baltimore Orioles look for consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Orioles continue to struggle offensively, scoring three or less runs in four straight games and just four runs in their last three games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Mark Trumbo leads Baltimore with 28 hits, Chris Davis has 13 RBI and Manny Machado has six home runs. Tyler Wilson takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Wilson’s second career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 0-6 in Danks' last 6 starts. The Orioles are 5-1 in their last 6 Thursday games and 4-1 in Wilsons last 5 starts. The White Sox are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Baltimore and 3-7 in the last 10 meetings overall.
The White Sox have been one of the hotter teams in the league out the gate, while the Orioles have been hot or cold and continue struggling to find their footing. I'll take the better team and the plus money.
