Rangers Look To Avoid Sweep At Hands Of Orioles

The Texas Rangers have been utterly dominated by the Baltimore Orioles through the first three games of their four-game set. The Rangers have been outscored 25-4 so far this series with the newly healthy O’s team racking up 35 hits. The Rangers look to avoid the sweep at Camden Yards on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are averaging 2.2 runs per game in their 6 games since the all-star break.
  • The visiting team is 1-7 SU in the last 8 games between the Rangers and Orioles.
  • The Orioles are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games as home favorites.

Cole Hamels will take the bump in hopes of continuing an impressive streak. The lefty has not allowed a run in his past 21 innings of work, a stretch that reaches back to the first inning of his July 1 start against the Chicago White Sox. Through his first three outings in July, Hamels has a 0.82 ERA while holding opposing batters to a .125 batting average.

Orioles starter Wade Miley has been trending in the opposite direction, as he has not recorded a quality start in his past eight trips to the mound. In Miley’s last eight starts, dating back to June 7, the lefty has a 10.19 ERA and has failed to make it through three innings on three occasions.
