Did somebody say winning streak? The Orioles have a rare chance at just that after snapping a 19-game skid with a stunning 10-6 win over the Angels on Wednesday night as +190 underdogs.
Los Angeles had their chances in the loss, taking a 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 8th before a bullpen implosion. The Angels will try to shed the embarrassment and pull their stirrups back up as they try to avoid their 5th loss in the last six games.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels wind down a very streaky 9 game road trip on Thursday afternoon. The trip East of the Mississippi River started off just fine with a sweep in Detroit, but LAA gave that right back in dropping three at Cleveland.
The Los Angeles offense was nonexistent in the three losses at Progressive Field with the team scoring a combined 2 runs. The Angels have plated 20 runs so far in the two games in Baltimore, but that’s been good enough for just a 1-1 split.
There has been some offense this series, which is why the run total is 10.5 for Thursday’s finale. The Angels belted out 19 hits in Tuesday’s 14-8 win, and got 9 RBI from the bottom 1/3 of their order. Jared Walsh and Brandon Marsh both went yard on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome some bad late inning pitching.
Jaime Berria will try to keep the scoring to a minimum when he makes his sixth start since returning from Triple-A. The right-hander has also allowed 11 ER in his last 11.0 IP however.
The Baltimore bats have come to life this series, even tallying 8 runs and 13 hits in Tuesday’s loss. Ryan Mountcastle hit a couple of HRs in that contest and Anthony Santander also added a deep one.
The O’s had 10 runs on just 9 hits in their big streak breaking win on Wednesday. Santander added another bomb on Wednesday, with Cedric Mullins and DJ Stewart also finding their power stroke. The demeaning runs were a couple of bases loaded walks in the 8th however.
Keegan Akin (0-8, 7.92) searches for his first win of the season when he takes the mound on Wednesday. Akin has 11 starts and 7 relief appearances on the season, and the Orioles have only gotten the win in one of those contests.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Do the Angels come out fired up in this one after losing to Baltimore which nobody has done for the last 19 games – or are they disinterested on getaway day? Bettors are going to be hammering the Angels with value at -115, but Barria has also been a trainwreck.
