Baltimore has played themselves into the playoff conversation, but as hot as they were a month ago have still been unable to gain ground. Matter of fact, the Orioles have won four straight series and have lost ground in the race. A major reason has been the improved play of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Seattle Mariners. They also have not been helped by the schedule as the teams needing losses to aid the Orioles have been playing the bottom tier teams.
Baltimore does have a chance to gain some type of ground as the face off against the Cleveland Guardians, and after squandering the first game will get another opportunity. While Cleveland may lead their division, they are only 1.5 games ahead of the Minnesota Twins. Losses to the Baltimore would hurt them all around because they could ultimately wound up in the wild card race in the American League.
There is excitement in the air in Baltimore, and not just for this year’s playoff race. After years of bottom barrel seasons, they now have their face of the franchise in Adley to lead the way. Even better? As of just 30 minutes ago have called up Gunnar Henderson. Henderson took the number one prospect ranking as Adey left to the show and has been an absolute force for Triple-A Norfolk. Whether this decision is considered to early or not, should the Orioles complete this remarkable season in the playoffs, Henderson will be there.
He is scheduled to make his debut on Wednesday night.

Jordan Lyles will get the nod for Birdland and has a 9-9 record entering the contest. He owns a 4.45 ERA with a road ERA of 5.85. While an elevated ERA, he has had some good starts as of late, with four games in his last six allowing two earned runs or fewer. He just went seven strong innings allowing just one earned run against the Chicago White Sox.
The Guardians will counter with Triston McKenzie who is off a good start himself. He went six strong allowing three in an eventual 3-1 loss to the Mariners and owns 2.78 home ERA to go along with a 3.17 season ERA. He has allowed three runs or fewer in four straight games, including three of his last four going at least 6.2 innings allowing two earned or fewer.
The total is set to 8 with the over and under both priced at -110. The Orioles have seen the under it in six straight contests while the Guardians have hit the under at a 16-4-1 clip in their last 21 games. While the under has been a hot trend for both clubs as of late, the over is 5-2 in the last meetings between the clubs.
