The Orioles take on the A’s Thursday night at Alameda County Coliseum.
The Orioles have lost three of their last four games, while Oakland has won two in a row against the Orioles.
Chris Tillman takes the mound for the Orioles and is 14-4 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Andrew Triggs is on the rubber for the A’s and has no record with a 5.35 ERA and 1.57 WHIP.
The Orioles are struggling as they cling onto the AL East lead.
They’ve scored just 15 runs over their last four games, 10 of which came in their only win against the White Sox.
They are still always an extraordinary offensive threat but right now the bats just aren’t showing up.
Chris Tillman has been rock solid for the Orioles though so they should be pretty confident with him on the mound in this one.
He’s given up three runs or less in six of his last seven starts.
The Athletics haven’t scored much of late themselves, they’ve really struggled to put up runs.
Over their last five games, they’ve generated just eight runs.
They’ve been pretty good at limiting their opponents as well which is why they’ve managed to win two of those five despite the severe lack of run production.
Andrew Triggs isn’t a regular starter and he will likely struggle in this outing.
His ERA and WHIP are not impressive. In his last outing against the Cubs, he didn’t even record an out and gave up one run.
He is a stretch reliever that has a hard time shutting down his opponents this season so the Orioles will give him a lot of tough work.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Both teams are struggling to put up runs but the Orioles are still scoring more than the A’s and are the better team offensively on the season.
So the edge goes to the Orioles here scoring wise.
The Orioles have one of their best on the mound against a non-regular starter in Triggs. So pitching favors the Orioles too.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles ML
Orioles will likely get their season average in runs at the very least but I don’t expect the A’s to put up many.
This one will likely be under.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Orioles 5-2
