|Date & Time||Saturday May 25, 2019, 9:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Baltimore Orioles +165 / Colorado Rockies -185 -- Over/Under: 11.5
The Baltimore Orioles and Colorado Rockies meet Saturday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Baltimore Orioles could use a win to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Orioles have allowed 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost 16 straight games when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 57 hits and 24 RBI while Dwight Smith Jr. and Jonathan Villar have combined for 101 hits and 49 RBI. Andrew Cashner gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 4.14 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Cashner is 3-4 with a 6.32 ERA and 44 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won seven of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 64 hits and 37 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 115 hits and 66 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 6.02 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. This will be Freeland’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 22-52 in their last 74 during game 2 of a series, 12-40 in their last 52 Saturday games and 0-4 in Cashner's last 4 starts. The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 1-8 in their last 9 Saturday games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The under is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 19-7 in Rockies last 26 overall. The over is 6-2 in Cashner's last 8 starts overall.
The Baltimore Orioles remain unbackable in their current form, as this team is piling up the losses left and right and their pitching staff gets pounded nightly. Cashner has been better than expected this season and has recently been rather impressive, which includes three or less runs in eight of his last nine games. The problem is the O's as a team hold no value currently. Freeland has been awful, and that includes a home ERA over seven in 22 innings, but I have confidence that the Colorado Rockies offense can pick up the pitching and score just enough to get a victory.
