MLB: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 3:40 PM (Chase Field)
Baltimore +120, Arizona -140 Over/Under 9.5 (MyBookie)
The Baltimore Orioles were somehow able to win against the Arizona Diamondbacks, winning 7-2. Renato Núñez and Anthony Santander earned the Orioles first three runs with 2 home runs in the top of the 2nd. Dwight Smith Jr earned himself a 3-run home run in the top of the 3rd. Pitching today for the Orioles is John Means, who is 8-5 on the mound this year, with an ERA of 2.95.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could hardly do anything against the Baltimore Orioles losing 2-7. Ketel Marte made a nice sliding grab in the top of the 1st. T.J. McFarland earned 6 strikeouts, a career high, while only playing 2 innings. Pitching for the Diamondbacks today is Taylor Clarke, who is 2-3 on the mound this year, with an ERA of 6.5.

Arizona are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
Arizona are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games at home.
Arizona are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing at home against Baltimore.
Normally I would just say the Orioles are the worst team again, say they’re going to lose and call it a day. However, I think they’re going to win the series today. The Diamondbacks are a painfully average team and don’t perform well at home, having a home record of 22-26. On top of that, the Orioles are starting their best pitcher (who is also their best player) today. Don’t be surprised Baltimore pulls off another win.
