Free Texas Rangers vs Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This one could be a very exciting postseason series coming in the next couple months. But, in August, I’m taking the Orioles at home.
I look for Miley to come out in this one and pitch well for his new team and get back to a .500 level. I don’t look at this Rangers lineup and fear many batters in it.
I look for the Orioles’ lineup to have a day against Griffin and give him enough trouble to pick up the victory.
