MLB: 9:10 PM EST

Latest Odds : COL -182 Total 11.5
The Orioles are going to head to Colorado to play again and it is one game that should actually allow the Orioles offense to pick up some life. Granted, it will not be at the same level the Orioles would like to have the offense and definitely not in the location, but with the way the balls fly in Denver it could help them out. The downside is the Orioles have lost 5 straight games and while looking impressive have not been able to close out the games.
Andrew Cashner is the pitcher the Orioles are putting on the mound in this game. This season Cashner has a 4-2 record with a 4.14 ERA. He has thrown a total of 54.1 innings on the season, but has struck out only 43 batters while giving up 51 hits and 20 walks.
The Rockies have oddly been struggling at home this season. Some of that stems from the way the ball flies, but the rest of it comes from the fact that the Rockies offense has been doing well, as can be seen in the recent 14-6 loss to Pittsburgh, but in Colorado the pitching staff seems to lose their way and have not looked good at all. In the last 5 games the Rockies have been able to post a 2-3 record, but those were all on the road.
Kyle Freeland is the pitcher who is taking to the mound for the Rockies. Freeland has a 2-5 record with a 6.02 ERA on the year so far. He has thrown 52.1 innings this year and struck out 46 batters. He has given up 51 hits and 24 walks on the season so far.

The Rockies have struggled at home and what is really depressing for the Rockies is the way Freeland has pitched on the season. His pitching will create problems for the Rockies in this game, even against the horrible Orioles offense that finds their stroke and breaks their losing streak in this game. Final Score Prediction, Baltimore Orioles win 5-2.
