Coming off of 9-1 drubbing at the hands of the Red Sox on Friday night, there is no question that the Orioles will be in a contrarian spot again on Saturday — as they have been for most of the 2019 season.
A 12-12 July was easily Baltimore’s best stretch this season, but they are just 3-12 in August and have already been outscored by 70 runs; allowing 8.8 runs per game this month.
One of those three wins came as a +406 underdog against Justin Verlander and the Astros on August 11 — with Asher Wojiechowski (“Woj”) pitching for the Orioles.
