Cole Irvin and the Oakland Athletics are on the road this Friday taking on another surprisingly good team in the Baltimore Orioles, as the two meetup at Camden Yards.
Surprisingly good is probably not a powerful enough type of phrase to describe what we are seeing from this Oakland Athletics team through the early stages of this season, as they have managed to rattle off 11 straight wins to put themselves in the drivers seat in terms of their division.
Their last win against the Twins was not your stereotypical Oakland Athletics type of baseball either, as they picked up that victory by a score of 13-12 in what turned out to be an absolute thriller of a game.
Matt Olsen has been a big reason for the A’s being where they are at this point, with the first basemen hitting 6 home runs and batting in 15 total runs leading his team in both of those categories.
Cole Irvin will be starting here for Oakland and he should have some confidence coming into this contest coming off a quality start against the Tigers where he got into the 6th inning without giving up a run.
The Orioles on the other side of this matchup have not been hot like the Athletics, but they have been respectable over their last 5 games picking up wins in three of those contests. This team’s last loss against the Marlins will be a bit of a disappointment, as they were not able to score a single run in a 3-0 loss, as their starting pitcher put them in an awfully good situation to get that win prior to giving up three earned runs in the 5th inning.
Jorge Lopez gets the ball here for the Orioles and he comes into this game with an 8.56 ERA and a 1-2 record, but he is coming off of a decent start against the Texans so it will be interesting to see what he can do here to cool down this red hot Oakland team.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Lopez had a decent start against the Texans, but this should be a tougher challenge and I can see the Athletics getting the upper hand here at a decent price of -125 on the moneyline. They have the advantage in the batting department and I also think they edge this on the mound, so I am inclined to take them as slight road favorites here.
It also feels like a little bit of the wind has been taken out of the sails of the Orioles lately and when you look at the energy they are going to need to matchup with the A’s coming in and trying to win their 12th straight, I just see it being hard for them to match.
