The Minnesota Twins and the Baltimore Orioles will play the 3rd game of the series at the Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Wednesday. The Twins won the first 2 games of the series 2-1 and 7-2.

Joe Ryan gave up two runs, six hits and a walk in 4 2/3 innings against the Orioles in the 2nd game of the series.

Probable Pitcher: Dylan Bundy (3-1, 2.95 ERA)

Bundy will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Twins. Bundy took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings as the Twins fell 6-1 to the Rays. He struck out seven. Last time he faced the Orioles he only pitched 1.1 innings and allowed 1 run striking out 3.

Bruce Zimmermann worked five innings for Baltimore, allowing two runs and four hits.

Probable Pitcher:

Kyle Bradish (0-1, 3.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Orioles in the 3rd game of the series. Bradish allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk over six innings Friday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Red Sox.

BETTING TRENDS

Minnesota are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games.

Minnesota are 18-2 SU in their last 20 games against Baltimore.

The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Baltimore's last 14 games at home.

Baltimore are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games when playing at home against Minnesota.

Prediction

The Twins continue to dominate the Orioles as they have won 18 of their last 20 games against them. The Orioles have struggled offensively as they're the second worst offense in the MLB averaging only 3.13 runs per game. I'm backing the Twins to win the 3rd of the series and maybe sweep the Orioles.
