Baltimore Orioles vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I really don’t trust Clevinger and if he continues to struggle it wouldn’t be shocking if the White Sox move on from him soon. Clevinger sits with an ERA of 5.56, and he’s going to really struggle here. The Orioles are averaging 4.89 runs, and they are going to really struggle in this game. Look for the Orioles to score at least six runs here, and that will be the difference here as Baltimore gets the job done. Back the Orioles on the run line.
