Orioles Offense

Despite not being in first place, the Baltimore Orioles probably the second biggest surprise in the American League. Texas takes the first spot. The Orioles are doing it with good offense, but have not been great yet. Many expect the Orioles to break out the bats even more in the second half of the season. Baltimore is 11th in runs scored, and right in the middle of the pack in batting average. The top threats for the Orioles are Austin Hays, with a .312 batting average, and Anthony Santander, who has 14 home runs and drove in 47 batters this season.

New York has Injuries

Every team in Major League Baseball has seen injuries this season, but the Yankees have been devastated by them. The Yankees have missed their slugger Aaron Judge for most of the season. The big bat in the lineup still leads the team with 19 home runs and 40 runs batted in. Anthony Rizzo is the top hitter for the Yankees, but even he is hitting just .264 on the season. New York as a team is hitting .232, which is near the bottom of Major League Baseball. The Yankees are also 26th in on base percentage.

Orioles Even the Series

The Baltimore Orioles know they need as many wins as they can get to keep pace with the Rays at the top of the division, and also any wildcard team as the second half approaches. Look for Baltimore to hit the baseball around the diamond here and even up this series. Take the Orioles -125 on the road on Thursday.
