Prediction:

The prediction for this game is a win for the Baltimore Orioles. Here’s why:

Offensively, the Orioles' lineup is well-rounded, with contributions from both power hitters like Gunnar Henderson and consistent performers like Adley Rutschman. This combination of power and average makes it difficult for opposing pitchers to navigate through their lineup without giving up runs.

Furthermore, the Braves have shown some vulnerability on the road and in recent games, which the Orioles can exploit. With a strong pitching performance from Suarez and a balanced offensive attack, Baltimore is well-positioned to come out on top in this matchup.
