|Date & Time||Tuesday June 18, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Baltimore Orioles +185 / Oakland Athletics -220 -- Over/Under: 9
The Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Baltimore Orioles could use a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Orioles have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost 19 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 83 hits and 35 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 131 hits and 43 RBI. Gabriel Ynoa gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 5.02 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be Ynoa’s first career game against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Athletics have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Oakland Athletics have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 81 hits and 35 RBI while Matt Chapman and Ramon Laureano have combined for 135 hits and 68 RBI. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 3.89 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 19-39 in their last 58 Tuesday games, 24-57 in their last 81 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Ynoa's last 5 starts. The Athletics are 2-10 in their last 12 vs. American League East, 1-7 in their last 8 home games and 4-1 in Anderson's last 5 starts. The Orioles are 20-43 in the last 63 meetings in Oakland and 2-8 in the last 10 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Anderson's last 4 starts overall. The under is 5-1 in Ynoa's last 6 starts overall.
The Baltimore Orioles are going nowhere fast, and Ynoa is a pitcher who is allowing a .275 batting average on the season and has a 5.74 ERA on the road. Anderson has allowed three or less earned runs in each of his last five games, and the A's have won six of the last eight games he's pitched. Either way, the Baltimore Orioles are a tough sell these days and the Athletics need to take advantage of series like this if they're going to make a move in the competitive wild card race. I'll lay the juice in this game.
