MLB FREE PICK: Take Baltimore. According to latest MLB trends, Cleveland is: 3-8 last 11 road games with total of 9.0-10.5 and 0-4 in Masterson's last 4 road starts. Baltimore is: 10-3 last 13 home games with the total set at 9.0-10.5, 16-7 last 23 on grass and 20-8 last 29 in Tillman's 28 starts.
Masterson is coming off giving up two runs in 6 1/3 innings against Kansas City last Wednesday. Normally not known as a strikeout pitcher, Masterson has 18 strikeouts in his last two starts. However, Masterson owns a 4.29 ERA lifetime against Baltimore in 16 starts. Tillman has finally arrived for Baltimore as one of their top young pitchers. The Orioles have won each of Tillman's last six starts. His last four starts have been outstanding as he's allowed just six runs in his last four starts. The weather is hot and humid as summer has officially started in Baltimore. The Orioles were licking their wounds, coming off a three-game road sweep to Toronto and may have been feeling a little sorry for themselves on Monday. The good news for Baltimore is that they send out one of their best pitchers to the mound in Tillman. They received a solid performance from Zach Britton on Monday, before he fell apart in the sixth inning and the Orioles never recovered. Cleveland is just 7 of 17 against the American League East this season. Tillman has won five straight decisions and has shown that he's capable of going from prospect to quality starter. Chris "Crash" Davis is due to hit a home run off Masterson, who has struggled on the road this season. In Masterson's last three starts against Detroit, the Yankees and Boston, he's allowed 14 runs, seven walks and 21 hits in just 19 1/3 innings.
