O’s Offense Has Been Fueling Them to Victory

A couple of clubs that are hovering right around the .500 mark will throw down on Monday with the postseason still in reach for both the Mariners and the Orioles. Hosting the affair, the O’s will be looking to extend a winning streak in series openers that dates back to the beginning of the month.

SHARK BITES
  • The Orioles are 6-0 SU and on the runline in their last 6 games when opening a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Orioles’ last 8 games.
  • Marco Gonzales has given up a home run in all 4 of his starts with the Mariners.

That streak, though, could be in jeopardy with Chris Tillman (1-7, 7.75 ERA) taking the hill. Baltimore has dropped six straight competitions where the veteran righty has stepped foot on the bump as he’s allowed 20 earned runs in his last 19 innings pitched.

If the O’s are going to win tonight, they’ll need the offense to continue doing what it’s been doing. In the month of August, the Orioles have scored the third-most runs in the majors and they’re hitting .295 as a team – by far the best mark in baseball.

With Marco Gonzales (0-1, 7.40 ERA) getting the start for the Mariners, there’s a good chance the O’s keep rolling offensively. The lefty has allowed seven home runs in five starts this season and he hasn’t earned a win since 2014.
