As the Major League Baseball season gets underway, baseball fans are excited to see their favorite teams back on the field. On March 17th, the Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins will face off in a Spring Training game at the Lee County Sports Complex in Fort Myers, Florida. The game is scheduled for 1:05 PM EST and can be viewed on the KingPin.pro iOS and Android app.
The Orioles have started the season with an 8-9 record, including a 3-6 record on the road. While the team's hitting has been strong, their pitching has struggled. They have a team ERA of 5.84 and a WHIP of 1.48, which is among the worst in the league. The Orioles' top hitters have been Austin Hays, who leads the team with 3 home runs and 7 RBIs, and Josh Lester, who has 9 RBIs and 1 home run.
Unfortunately, the Orioles have also been plagued with injuries early in the season. Dillon Tate, Lewin Diaz, Ryan O'Hearn, and DL Hall are all on the team's injury report. While the injuries are not expected to significantly impact the game, they do raise concerns about the team's depth and durability over the course of the season.
The Twins have also started the season with an 8-9 record, but have performed better at home with a 6-2 record. Their hitting has been led by Jose Miranda, who has 3 home runs and 5 RBIs. The Twins' pitching has been stronger than the Orioles, with a team ERA of 4.50 and a WHIP of 1.40. The Twins' top hitters also include Willi Castro, who has 9 RBIs and 2 home runs, and Jorge Polanco, who has 8 RBIs and 2 home runs.
The Twins have also faced some injury issues early in the season. Alex Kirilloff and Josh Winder are both on the team's injury report, but the team has been able to overcome those injuries so far.
While both teams have some players on their injury reports, none are expected to significantly impact the game.
Based on their stronger pitching and home record, the Minnesota Twins are favored to win this game. However, the Orioles have a strong hitting lineup and could make it a close game. Our prediction is that the Twins will win by a score of 5-3.
