Free MLB Pick
Miguel Gonzalez is making his first start since June 11th after recently coming off the DL and the Orioles have won 2 of their last 3 games with him on the hill. In his last outing he did not give up any earned runs in 4 innings in a 1-0 win over the Red Sox on June 9th. He is 2-4 with an ERA of 4.64 in his last 6 road starts and he has already faced the Red Sox 3 times this season where he is 1-0 with an ERA of 4.11. Eduardo Rodriguez gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings in his last start in a 7-3 win over the Kansas City Royals. In his previous start, which was his last one at home, he had, by far, his worst outing of the season giving up 9 earned runs in 4 innings in a 13-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Orioles are only 1-5 in Gonzalez’s last 6 road starts and I think he will be a little rusty tonight and the Boston offense will get to him. The Red Sox have averaged 6.1 runs per game in their last 8 games and their offense will stay hot and they will win tonight and take this series.
