Baltimore Orioles +122 / San Francisco Giants -132 O/U: 9.5
The San Francisco Giants and the Baltimore Orioles will meet up on the MLB diamond Saturday to continue their series.
In the Friday opener, the Orioles put up eight runs in the first two innings and were able to hang on in a high-flying 9-6 win.
For Saturday’s game, the Giants will be sending out Shaun Anderson in the start. Across his 15.0 innings and 0-1 record this year, Anderson has a 4.80 ERA with nine Ks and four walks.
San Francisco put up nine hits in the Friday loss. Mike Yastrzemski logged a solo homer with two RBI and two runs to lead the team.
Over on the Orioles’ side, they’re going with David Hess on Saturday. With his 51.0 innings and 1-6 mark this year, Hess has a 6.71 ERA with 44 Ks and 19 BBs.
Baltimore managed nine hits in the Friday win, and four hitters had two knocks apiece. The big one was a grand slam by Dwight Smith, who finished 1-for-3.
The Giants are 3-7 in their last 10 in game two of a series and 1-5 in their last six Saturday games. The over is 5-0 in San Fran’s last five Saturday games and 7-3 in their last 10 in game two of a series.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 23-53 in their last 76 in game two of a series and 13-40 in their last 53 Saturday games. Baltimore is 4-22 in Hess’ last 26 starts and 0-5 in his last five home starts.
Anderson has a pretty small sample size to gauge from, but he’s done okay in his three starts and has gone at least 5.0 innings in all of them. The bad news is he’s given up 17 hits in his last two outings.
As for Hess, he’s given up 17 earned over his last 16.2 innings in three starts and hasn’t gotten a win since way back on April 1.
This is something of a coin-flip game as I’m not thrilled with either pitcher right now, but I suppose I’ll take Hess and the O’s as home dogs on a value pick.
