Baltimore has been solid this year, currently sitting in 2nd place in the AL East and ahead of the Boston Red Sox, who entered the season as the odds on favorite in the division.
Manny Machado leads the team with 9 homers and 22 RBI on the year thus far, but the lineup as a whole is deadly with the likes of Chris Davis, Adam Jones, Jonathan Schoop Mark Trumbo, and the surprising Trey Mancini, who are provide good pop.
The long-term starting pitching will need to be addressed, as Wade Miley and Chris Tillman are both pending free agents, and Kevin Gausman and this game’s starter, Ubaldo Jiminez, have been terrible.
Jiminez owns a 6.15 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP and doesn’t appear like he’ll ever recapture that rookie magic he had long ago.
Much like the Orioles, the Tigers have a solid lineup when healthy. Justin Upton is having an excellent start to his season with 8 homers and a .376 OBP through 112 ABs.
Once Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kinsler start performing like they usually do, this lineup will be as good as any. Miguel has just a .238 average with 4 homers since returning from injury to start the year.
Michael Fulmer is picking up right where he left off last season, in which he earned the AL Rookie of the year nod. Fulmer enters the game with a team-leading 2.54 ERA this year with a 1.00 WHIP and 42 Ks.
- The Over is 9-4 in Jiminez’s last 13 road starts.
- Baltimore is 12th overall in homeruns with 48 on the year .
- The Orioles are 9-11 on the road this year.
- Detroit is 22-7 in Fulmer’s last 29 starts on grass.
- Detroit is 23-8 in Fulmer’s last 31 starts overall.
- Detroit is 9-7 at home this season.
Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
At this point, Ubaldo Jiminez probably shouldn’t even be a starter in the MLB anymore. Ubaldo has had an ERA north of 4.10 in each of his last four seasons including this one, and he has just one quality start this season.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Detroit -1.5 and Detroit team runs over 4.5
As I said, I have zero faith that Ublado can perform even as a mediocre starter any longer. He’s vastly overmatched on the mound by Fulmer, who should be able to tack on his 5th win on the year here. Detroit has scored 8 more runs on the season so far and should be able to increase that spread over Baltimore here.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Detroit 6 – Baltimore 3
