Seattle Mariners vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’m on the Orioles here. I get the case to be made for Seattle at home as the Mariners have still been a solid team to this point, leading a competitive AL West, but the problem here is that the Mariners have not been hitting all that well against right-handed pitching in recent games and they’re striking out a ton which doesn’t bode well against a strikeout machine like G-Rod. The Orioles have been a solid road team to back going to last year and I think Baltimore keeps it going with another W here. Give me Baltimore.
