After simulating every game on Tuesday 10,000 times, the model is picking the San Diego Padres (-141) to defeat the Baltimore Orioles (+118). Entering this year, the Padres had won three of the past four meetings with the Orioles. San Diego is also 30-28 on its home field this season.
Baltimore entered the series on a roll, winning seven of 10 games, and were 26-9 against teams with a losing record. The Orioles have overtaken Tampa Bay in the AL East and lead the division, in which all five teams are above .500. Catcher Adley Rutschman is one of the reasons for Baltimore’s success as he is one of the team’s top hitters. In 113 games entering the series with San Diego, he was hitting .270 with 16 homers, 58 RBIs and 58 runs scored. In Thursday’s 5-4 win over the Houston Astros, Rutschman was 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and a run scored.
San Diego, meanwhile, has struggled of late, losing seven of nine and are in danger of falling too far behind in the NL Wild Card chase. The Padres will send Michael Wacha (8-2, 2.84 ERA) to the mound. He is scheduled to come off the injured list after missing a month and a half. He had registered three wins and a no-decision in his last four starts before being sidelined. See the model’s top MLB picks here.
