The AL East series between Boston and Baltimore wraps up tonight. We break down the entire contest and the intent is to deliver another baseball winner.
Among the many reasons why Boston has struggled this season is because of how poorly they have played against Baltimore and costing backers of MLB picks. The Red Sox are 3-3 for -3.75 units versus the Orioles and tonight they will go for the series win.
This was a team Boston has dominated the last couple years, especially at Camden Yards coming into the season, with a 14-5 record for 2017-18.

A look at the MLB odds finds at consensus line of -250 on Boston with Chris Sale (1-5, 5.25) as the starter. The big left-hander finally got to relax after his last start with his first victory of the season. It was finally the Sale everyone has been waiting for with six innings of no-run, three-hit baseball, fanning 10 and walking only one. The velocity is still not up to career norms but Sale’s ERA is 2.00 over his last three starts and he will face a Baltimore line up that averaging 3.7 runs a game against lefties this season.
The Orioles will counter with Andrew Cashner, who is oddly 4-1 and his team is 5-2 in all seven of his starts. Why we say oddly is because Cashner’s ERA of 4.71, WHIP of 1.46 and batting average allowed of .266 are all above career norms. For whatever reason, Cashner has been the recipient of 7.0 RPG in his starts, which includes 8.4 RPG in his last five outings. You receive that kind of run support, it almost does not matter how you pitch in Cashner’s case.
