MLB Betting: Baltimore Orioles vs. Seattle Mariners Odds & Predictions: June 1st 2009
The Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher tonight against the Seattle Mariners Rich Hill (1-0, 6.14 ERA) is off a ugly outing in his third start of the season, allowing six earned runs and getting knocked out in the fourth inning. He did not get the loss because of his teams explosive bats. Hill goes against a M’s side that has performed well against LH starters this season winning 10 of 16 confrontations. I am expecting him to have a sub-par start. It must be noted that Hill has garnered a bloated 6.13 ERA in his L/3 outings.
Jarrod Washburn (3-3, 3.45 ERA) the Mariners veteran southpaw takes to the mound to face a Baltimore offense, than can explode on the best of pitchers. The native of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, has not won any of his L/6 starts, and has recorded a hefty 5.29 ERA in his L/3 overall starts . In Washburns last 3 starts vs the Orioles he has been beaten around with his team losing all 3 games by 10-5 , 8-7, 7-4 counts , numbers and scores that would easily eclipse this opening number. Over is 5-0 in Washburns last 5 home starts vs. Orioles.
Everything points to this contest going over the number.
