Sunday baseball and we will see the Baltimore Orioles take on the Oakland A's in game 3 of their 3 game series from O.Co Coliseum in Oakland, California. First pitch is scheduled for a 4:05 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
Over/ Under: 7.5 U -120
Analysis: The Baltimore Orioles let one slip away in the first game of this series, but they got that game back with an 8-4 win last night. The Orioles are now still 53-43 on the year, 27-20 on the road and still have a 4 game lead over the Blue Jays in the AL East. The Orioles have been a very good offensive team this year, as they come in ranked 8th in scoring (4.34 rpg), 4th in hitting (.265), and 1st in homers (119), but are also dead last in stolen bases (28). The pitching for the Orioles has been below average, coming in ranked 17th in ERA (3.86) and 20th in WHIP (1.32). Getting the ball for the Orioles today will be Kevin Gausman, who is 4-2 with a 3.29 ERA on the year, while on the road he is 1-0 with an 0.79 ERA in 2 starts. Kevin is 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA in 1 career start vs the A’s, which was this year
The Oakland A's won game 1 of this series but gave it back last night. They still have the best record in baseball at 60-27 overall and are 31-16 at home, plus they still lead in the AL West by 1.5 games over the LA Angels. The A's have been excellent on offense this year, ranking 2nd in the league in scoring (4.90 rpg), 18th in hitting (.251) and 6th in homers (101). The pitching has been just as good for the A's, as they are 3rd in ERA (3.14), 2nd in WHIP (1.16) and 5th in quality starts (61). Getting the ball for the A's today will be Sonny Gray, who has had a very nice year so far, going 10-3 with a 2.79 ERA overall, while at home he is 6-2 with a 3.01 ERA. Sonny has struggled vs the O’s, going 0-2 with an 11.42 ERA in 2 career starts vs them.
Pick: Going to go with another Over here. Both offenses rank in the top 8 in the league in scoring and the first two games did put up 9 and 12 runs. Sonny has a solid 3.01 ERA at home and an 0.83 ERA in his last 3 starts, but he will be taking on a Baltimore offense that averages 5.19 rpg on the road. The A's are the second best scoring team in the league and they have averaged 4.91 rpg at home. Kevin Gausman has pitched well for the O's, but does have a 4.11 ERA in his last 3 starts and I see the A's getting to him here. I look for at least 9 runs to be scored in this one.
