The Baltimore Orioles look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Orioles have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Baltimore Orioles have won six of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Jonathan Schoop leads the Orioles with 121 hits and 78 RBI while Adam Jones and Manny Machado have combined for 212 hits and 105 RBI.

The Tigers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League East, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 4-0 in Boyds last 4 starts. The Orioles are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. American League Central, 2-5 in Tillmans last 7 home starts and 3-8 in Tillmans last 11 starts. The Orioles are 4-0 in Tillmans last 4 home starts vs. Tigers and the over is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings in Baltimore.
Matthew Boyd has allowed three or more earned runs in each of his last 10 games. Tillman has been complete garbage this season if we're being nice, but he's been far better at home than on the road, and he's downright owned the Tigers throughout his career. Even in 105 career at bats against these current Tigers hitters, he has a .210 batting average with 22 strikeouts. The O's are also hitting their stride right now. Give me the home team and cheap price.
