The Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners continue their three-game mid-week series at Camden Yards tonight after the M’s took the opener last night by a final score of10-0. It was one of the biggest blowout shutouts of the year and saw Seattle amass 13 hits, including six with runners in scoring position.
As if things weren't going bad enough for the Orioles. Now they come out and get destroyed but one of the weakest teams in the American League. With the loss, The Orioles further entrenched themselves in last place in the AL East at 21-30. It was the second time in their last three games that Baltimore allowed 10 or more runs. Can they get it together and even this series up tonight?

Mariners vs. Orioles Prediction and Pick
If the Orioles are hoping to avoid another blow-out, they picked the wrong starting pitcher to send out tonight. Kyle Bradish gets the nod here despite a 1-3 record, 7.31 ERA, and 1.52 WHIP. He has given up four or more runs in four of his last five starts and consistently walks more batters than he strikes out. His last epic failure was on Friday, when he got annihilated by the Red Sox for six runs in 1 ⅔ innings of work. It was the worst start in a season full of bad performances.
As much as I don’t like Bradish, I am having a hard time finding the strength to bet the Mariners and Robbie Ray as sizable favorites here. The M’s are still a terrible team despite beating down the Orioles last night. And Ray has been a big part of that with a 4.75 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 60 ⅔ innings this year. Ray is regularly getting beat up by bad teams with losses to the A’s, Red Sox, and Marlins over the last few weeks. The Mariners are also a terrible road team at 8-18 which puts them in 27th place in terms of road money. I think it’s best to avoid them and take a shot on the O’s to bounce back at home.
Pick: Orioles +127 ML
