The Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles meet Saturday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The White Sox look for a win after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Orioles need a win after losing five of their last six games.

The Chicago White Sox have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 straight games. The White Sox have won nine of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 91 hits and 29 RBI while Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada have combined for 145 hits and 100 RBI. Lucas Giolito gets the ball, and he is 6-6 with a 4.20 ERA and 116 strikeouts this season. Giolito is 1-2 with a 7.53 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Orioles have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cedric Mullins leads the Orioles with 103 hits and 34 RBI while Trey Mancini and Ryan Mountcastle have combined for 156 hits and 101 RBI. Thomas Eshelman gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 7.16 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Eshelman’s first career game against the White Sox.

The White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Orioles are 27-63 in their last 90 Saturday games and 18-46 in their last 64 during game 2 of a series. The over is 8-2 in White Sox last 10 overall. The over is 4-1 in Orioles last 5 overall. The White Sox are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.

Not the best pitching matchup in the world, but the White Sox are easily the better team here and their offense is hot, so it may not matter if Giolito gets roughed up a bit. It’s hard to find confidence in backing the Orioles these days, and Eshelman hasn’t looked good in limited innings. It’s White Sox or pass for me, and I’ll take the RL for max betting value.
