With just 49 games left on their MLB schedule, the Athletics sit 16.5 games back of the Rangers in the AL West and will go into their series with the Orioles looking to play spoilers. The O’s will begin their West Coast road trip in Oakland tonight and will send Kevin Gausman (3-8, 4.08 ERA) to the mound in hopes of retaining their one-game lead in the AL-East as they go up against Kendall Graveman (7-7, 4.46 ERA).
- The Orioles are 16-6 in their last 22 games after a win.
- The Athletics are 8-2 in their last 10 games with Graveman as the starting pitcher.
- The Orioles are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games against the AL West.
Like many pitchers, Graveman performs much better at home than he does on the road. In eight starts at the Coliseum, he owns a 2.92 ERA compared to a 5.64 ERA away from home. Graveman has seen the O’s lineup once this season and he did not fare well. The A’s hurler gave up six runs in just 2.2 innings of action.
Gausman is coming off a great start against the Rangers in which he allowed just two runs over seven innings. He has, however, been just terrible on the road this year and has a 0-7 record in 11 starts away from home.
