Orioles end skid
The Baltimore Orioles were unable to win back-to-back games on Saturday, suffering a 4-1 loss to the Tribe. They are just 2-8 in their last 10 games. Baltimore is 15-30 on the season, 9-15 on the road and 22-21 with the under. Baltimore sends Yefry Ramirez to the mound today. He is 0-1 on the year with a 5.14 ERA.
The Orioles finished with just one hit on Saturday, a solo home run from Trey Mancini in the fourth inning. It was his 10th home run of the season. John Means wasn’t terrible on the mound, allowing just three runs over five innings, but he got no help at the plate, which dropped him to 5-4 on the year despite just a 2.68 ERA.
Indians bounce back
Cleveland bounced back from Friday’s loss by grabbing the 4-1 win on Saturday for its third win in four games. The Indians are now 24-20 on the season, 13-8 at home and 26-17 with the under. Cleveland has Shane Bieber taking the mound on Sunday. He is 2-2 on the season with a 3.81 ERA.
Cleveland had four pitchers combine for the 1-hitter on Saturday. Adam Plutko got the win, allowing just the one home run over six innings with four strikeouts. It is his first win of the season. Brad Hand picked up his 12th save of 2019 by recording the final four outs. Carlos Santan had a double and a home run to lead the Tribe at the plate while Jordan Luplow had a home run and two RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 30-90 in their last 120 road games and 15-60 in their last 75 road games against a right-handed starter.
The Indians are 8-1 in their last nine games against AL East opponents and 42-20 in their last 62 Game 4’s of a series.
The Orioles aren’t likely to put up a lot of runs no matter who is on the mound. Bieber has been a little shaky at times this year, but he does get himself deep into the game. Ramirez is making his first start and the Orioles have lost all three games he has appeared in this season. I just can’t trust the Baltimore pitching or hitters to make something happen.
