Money Line Pick:
Texas starter Yu Darvish had one of his best outings of the season pitching 8 scoreless innings and striking out 10. He has been really good or mediocre lately with only 2 quality starts in his last 5 games. He hasn’t faced Baltimore since 2012 when he lasted 6 2/3 innings allowing 2 earned runs. Orioles starter Wei –Yin Chen got beat up for 5 runs in just 3 1/3 innings in his latest, but has pitched well against the Rangers with 3 wins in 3 starts all of which were quality (21 innings, 3 earned runs). The Orioles continue to light it up with 28 runs in their last 4 games and with Darvish’s consistency lacking this appears to be a solid play. Take Baltimore Orioles +105.
