Olson powers A's in 10-run third inning

Ramon Laureano finished 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, a walk and a run scored in yesterday's 10-0 thrashing at Baltimore. Matt Chapman was 2-for-4 with a double, a run and three RBIs. Matt Olson ended the contest 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Nick Martini was 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. Jonathan Lucroy was 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs. Daniel Mengden earned the win as he threw five no-hit innings with three strikeouts and a walk.

Orioles held to one hit

Trey Mancini had a single in the first inning as he finished the contest 1-for-2, recording the only hit in Wednesday's game for Baltimore. Jace Peterson drew a walk in three plate appearances. Andrew Cashner surrendered eight earned runs on eight hits over two-plus innings, striking out one and walking one.

Brett Anderson (3-4, 4.02 ERA) draws the start today for Oakland, while Baltimore counters with Dylan Bundy (7-14, 5.58).

MLB Betting Trends


The Athletics are 55-21 in their last 76 games overall. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 Oakland games following a win.


The Orioles are 24-70 in their last 94 games overall. Baltimore is 8-20 in its last 28 Thursday games.


Betting on Baltimore is one of the more difficult choices a bettor has to make in the world of baseball. Like most days, I'd avoid it today. Bundy has struggled mightily since showing some promise early in the season, while he'll be backed with an offense coming off another embarrassing effort. Take the favored Athletics and bet on the runline for more value.
