Orioles vs. Athletics Prediction: Friday, April 26 

To say that we were salivating over Corbin Burnes facing the Athletics would be a huge understatement, but, of course, the books saw us coming a mile away. So instead, we’ll put our focus on the Baltimore bats against a very hittable Ross Stripling. The veteran righthander has allowed at least three earned runs in four of his five starts this season with most of the damage being done early. With the Orioles posting a .337 wOBA with a .205 ISO against righties this season, we can expect them, especially with so many strong, lefty bats, to plate some runs inside the first five innings.

Reds vs. Rangers Prediction: Friday, April 26 

While Reds starter Graham Ashcraft has pitched to less contact this year than he has in the two previous seasons, it’s still too much for Great American Ballpark, especially against this Rangers lineup which is chock full of strong lefty bats. Ashcraft is allowing a .375 wOBA to lefties this season and this Rangers team has seven of its nine starters posting a wOBA of at least .330 against righties this season. The contact-pitcher helps. The ballpark helps. The confidence level in the bats is high.

On the other side, Nathan Eovaldi is a savvy veteran who may not shut down this Reds lineup, but he should hold them in check early on for the most part. Enough to give the bats time to grab an early lead. The Reds have struggled a bit lately, posting just a .300 wOBA with a 26.6-percent K-rate and very little power.

Diamondbacks vs. Mariners Prediction: Friday, April 26 

Here we go with another insanely strong lineup against a pitcher who throws to contact. Emerson Hancock will develop into a solid starter, but his success this season has not come against lineups with the firepower we see with Arizona. I’m not saying the bats will chase him early, but they should put enough runs up to grab an early lead.

Arizona is throwing Zac Gallen, who’s strikeout props have way too much juice for my liking. That was obvious, though, given how awful Seattle has been at the dish this season. But Gallen should do his part to stifle the offense and allow the Diamondbacks to grab an early lead they should hold onto throughout. You could grab the DBacks money line if you like, but I never like to leave my fate up to the bullpens.
