It’s now or never for the Baltimore Orioles to make a run at the final wild card spot in the American League. They have gone 1-8 in their last nine games overall to really hurt their chances. But I look for them to get back on the winning track tonight due to the edge they have on the mound.
Ubaldo Jimenez has gone 9-8 with a 4.26 ERA in 25 starts this season, but he’s still the better starter in this match-up. Plus, Jimenez loves facing the Rangers, going 4-2 with a 2.37 ERA in eight career starts against them. He has allowed just one earned run over 21 2/3 innings in his last three starts against Texas for a 0.42 ERA as well.
Martin Perez is one of the worst starters in the American League. He has gone 1-3 with a 5.30 ERA and 1.500 WHIP in seven starts this season, and 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA in three home starts. Perez is also 1-1 with a 4.38 ERA and 1.379 WHIP in two career starts against the Orioles.
Baltimore is 5-1 in its last six Saturday games. The Orioles are 4-0 in Jimenez’s last four starts during Game 2 of a series. The Rangers are 1-6 in their last seven home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. Texas is 1-4 in Perez’s last five starts as a home underdog. Bet the Orioles Saturday.
