Camden Yards and the Baltimore Orioles host the Boston Red Sox in the final game their series in a Sunday MLB tilt.

The Red Sox give Sunday’s starting assignment to left hander Chris Sale. Sale has allowed only one run in his past six starts covering 39 innings of work.
The Baltimore Orioles fought the Red Sox tooth and nail for nine innings before falling in the night cap of their twin bill. Baltimore starter Yefry Ramirez was charged with two runs before Cody Carroll, Mike Wright Jr. and Paul Fry combined to allow four runs four innings.
The Orioles offense consisted of seven hits and eight bases on balls with Joey Rickard going solo while Trey Mancini was 3-3 with a homer, two RBI’s and two runs.

Boston are 17-5 in their last 22 Sunday games and Boston are 39-13 in their last 52 overall and under is 6-2-1 in Boston last 9 on grass. Over is 10-1-1 in Baltimore last 12 Sunday games and over is 9-2 in Baltimore last 11 on grass and over is 11-3 in Baltimore last 14 overall. Boston are 17-5 in the last 22 meetings and are 21-7 in the last 28 meetings in Baltimore.
I can’t imagine what this line would be if the Red Sox were at home. I don’t know if this game is worth betting given the huge price so think about the alternative RL or a parlay if you like Boston…
