    Pittsburgh Pirates (Brubaker) @ Baltimore Orioles (Voth)
    Bal -1.5 (+130) –
    Baltimore took Game 1 of this inter-league series Friday by a score of 1-0. Pittsburgh was riding a 3-game winning streak into this series; however, the Pirates have struggled on the road this season going 1-7 in their last 8 road games. Baltimore has been on a roll since July, the Orioles have now won 4 straight games and they are 9-5 since the break. Brubaker will be on the mound for Pittsburgh, he got hit hard in his last start allowing 7 runs, bringing his ERA up to 4.40. Voth will go for Baltimore and will look to get the best of the Pirates who struggle at the plate on the road. Voth has been decent for the Birds posting a 1-1 record in his 30 appearances this season. Let’s ride Baltimore’s hot hand in hopes they can make it 5 in a row against a Pittsburgh team that has had it struggles on the road. Baltimore -1.5 (+130) is the play for this game.

    Chicago White Sox (Kopech) @ Texas Rangers (Dunning)
    CWS ML (-117)
    – The White Sox took Fridays game 2-1 over the Rangers. Dylan Cease picked up the win with his 6 innings of work and Eloy Jimenez lead the way for White Sox offense going 2-4 with a solo homerun. The White Sox will send Michael Kopech to the mound to make his 20th start of the season. Kopech has pitched in 19 games this season with a 3.12 ERA and posts 4-7 record, the White Sox flame thrower will look to keep the Rangers off the bases for a second straight night. Take the White Sox at (-117) on the money line for this Saturday night matchup.

    Boston Red Sox (Eovaldi) @ Kansas City Royals (Lynch)
    BOS ML (-136) & BOS Over 4.5 Runs (-120) –
    The Red Sox were able to even the series Friday night after picking up a 7-4 win over the Royals in Kansas City. The Red Sox will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound for game 3 of this series Saturday. Eovaldi is trying to find his form, he has been getting hit hard since returning from the injured list posting an ERA at 7.45 since being back. The Royals will turn to Daniel Lynch Saturday. The lefty is 4-7 this season and has not gone more than 5 innings since his 3rd start of the season. I like the Red Sox to build on Fridays win and get to Lynch early in this one. Let’s bank on Eovaldi having a good start and Sox bats having a good day at the plate, take Boston money line (-136) and the Red Sox over 4.5 runs (-120).
