Bet Tonight's Orioles vs. Nationals Game

BALTIMORE: Miley took the no-decision against the Astros last Friday but was hit hard in the process, allowing six runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings of work. Out of the six outs he did get, five came via the strikeout and he didn't walk a batter so there was some positives to take out of the game. He now owns a 5.58 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP on the season.

WASHINGTON: Roark earned a quality start in a no-decision against the Braves last Friday, allowing three runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings pitched. He walked three and struck out three in the game while holding the Braves scoreless through the first five innings until Ender Inciarte took him deep with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. He now has a 2.87 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP across 163 1/3 innings this season.
