The Red Sox and Orioles meet on Wednesday night for the third of a four game set at Camden Yards. On the mound will be Clay Buchholz for Boston and Ubaldo Jimenez for the Orioles.
Buchholz is 7-10 with a 5.20 ERA this season while Jimenez is 7-11 with a 5.94 ERA.
Jimenez has pitched much better over his last five starts. The 32-year-old has given up 13 runs over his last 35.2 innings in that stretch.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox control their own destiny as they lead the AL East by four games with only 11 games to play. Boston is playing some of their best baseball of the year as they have won six straight games.
Boston has as dangerous of a lineup as anyone in the league. They are led by David Ortiz and Mookie Betts.
Ortiz is hitting .318 with 36 homers and 121 RBI. Betts is batting .317 with 31 homers and 108 RBI.
Dustin Pedroia (.325) and Hanley Ramirez (28 homers & 107 RBI) have been huge for the Red Sox as well.
Buchholz is 5-3 with a 4.67 ERA on the road this season.
Baltimore is in must-win mode if they want to secure a postseason spot. The Orioles are one game in the loss column ahead of Detroit for the second AL Wild Card spot. Houston, Seattle, and New York are within three games of the Orioles.
Mark Trumbo has led the Orioles this year with 43 homers and 102 RBI.
Manny Machado is hitting .300 with 36 homers and 93 RBI.
Baltimore is 11th in runs (703) and 12th in batting average (.258).
If the Orioles want any chance at succeeding in the playoffs, Gallardo must step up his production particularly on the road.
Jimenez is 4-4 with a 6.27 ERA in 12 home starts this season.

MLB Baseball Free Score Prediction: Boston 7 Baltimore 6
While Jimenez has been terrific as of late I expect him to struggle against a loaded Red Sox lineup. Look for Buchholz to pitch just well enough to earn a hard-nosed win.
Look for Boston to win their third straight game against Baltimore in the series.
