MLB Expert Picks: The Houston Astros Starts Three-Game Series with the Baltimore Orioles
Houston is a full 15.5 games ahead of Seattle in the American League West, so they can be forgiven for playing .500 ball since the All-Star break ended. This team is not only head and shoulders ahead in their division, they are also ten games up on the Red Sox for the best record in the American League.
Baltimore Orioles has been slumping for weeks and it’s no mystery why that is. Their pitching has been atrocious, the worst in the Majors by a country mile. Their team ERA in the last 30 days -heading into Wednesday’s games- is 6.61. That’s a full 1.22 worse than Detroit who are 14th in the American League.
Baltimore and Toronto are two teams that simply don’t like each other. Led by fiery leaders Manny Machado and Jose Bautista, the two teams disdain runs deep and that should make for an extra spicy mid-week matchup between these two AL East foes.
