Baltimore Orioles vs Atlanta Braves Prediction

I’ll probably stay with the O’s, but I could go either way here. It’ll be interesting to see what the starters can do. Povich gave up six earned in 5.1 innings during his first start. As for Schwellenbach, he’s given up nine earned in 9.2 innings during a pair of outings.

On Tuesday the Orioles didn’t have a great night offensively—outside of Jorge Mateo’s three-run homer, that is. Austin Hays had three hits and the other RBI as well, but not a lot happened at the plate otherwise. Baltimore is going to need to get the bats going Wednesday.
