Baltimore Orioles vs Chicago Cubs Prediction

I’ll stay with the Orioles. Burnes took a loss back on June 22 versus Houston with four earned in 7.0 innings. He’s 1-0 since then, however. In that time Burnes has 10.0 innings with three earned runs. As for Imanaga, he’s been a bit spotty over his last trio with 16 earned in 15.0 innings (10 earned in one start over 3.0 frames).

On Tuesday the O’s didn’t play particularly well in any capacity, failing to get past a rough start from Kremer. The offense got a solo homer from Jordan Westburg and two hits from Adley Rutschman but not much else. It’s going to take a big bounce-back to get the win Wednesday.
