Rays' Chirinos allows three runs in loss to Yankees
Yonny Chirinos pitched 6 2/3 innings of three-run ball Tuesday against the Yankees. That's a nice return to the majors for Chirinos, who went on the DL with a forearm strain on May 1 and had been pitching in Triple-A since coming back in June. It's possible he'll get sent back down now, but he should get a lot of work in the second half and amass some AL-only value.
Orioles' Bundy allows three home runs in no-decision vs. Blue Jays
Dylan Bundy gave up five runs over five innings with three strikeouts in a no decision against the Blue Jays on Friday. The ball was jumping in Toronto, and Bundy gave up three homers in the no decision. He was generally solid over the first four innings, but he allowed four runs in the fifth to ruin the outing. Fortunately for Bundy, the Orioles were able to come back in the ninth to prevent him from picking up his 10th loss of 2018. He’ll take the nine losses along with a 4.57 ERA over 108 1/3 innings when he’s back on the mound on Wednesday when he faces the Red Sox at home.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rays are just 7-19 in their last 26 road games following their loss to the Orioles on Saturday.
The Orioles have won just seven times in Bundy's last 22 starts.
Despite the previous two games sailing over the total, I like the under today in Baltimore. In Adam Hamari's last 51 games behind home plate, the under is 34-16-1. The under is also 11-4 in the Rays' last 15 divisional games, is 19-9-1 in their last 29 games when playing the fourth game of a series, and is 9-2 in the Orioles' last 11 games after allowing two runs or fewer in their previous contest.
The Pick: Rays/Orioles under 8.5
