- The Orioles are 7-1 in their last 8 games vs the National League.
- The Dodgers are 9-0 in their last 9 games at home.
- The Orioles are 2-6 in their last 8 games against the Dodgers.
Urias reached 100 pitches for the first time in his young MLB career in his last start against the Brewers. He limited Milwaukee to two runs, allowing two hits and issuing six walks through six innings. The effort resulted in the rook’s first career win and first career quality start.
Gallardo has been much better since his DL stint and posted a quality start that resulted in a 12-6 O’s win his last time up. He is 2-0 in his three June starts but has struggled on the road with a 7.58 ERA in 2016.
The trends in this game are a little conflicting but with the Dodgers’ streak at home and the Orioles recent slump, LA seems like a pretty safe bet.
