Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles 8/6/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates will go against the Baltimore Orioles in MLB action in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, MD, on Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 5:05 PM ET.

 

During the first half of the season, Pittsburgh was among the poorest teams in MLB, and they were 15 games under.500 at the time of the All-Star break.

 

The Pirates continued their terrible performance in their first few post-break series, dropping eight out of their opening nine matches. Their terrible run made this week’s series victory against Milwaukee all the more unexpected.

 

Being rated No. 29 in team batting average, they had difficulty getting anything going at the plate (.221). Bryan Reynolds, who plays center field, has 84 hits, while third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes has 90 hits overall.

 

They will be taking on the No. 13-ranked (3.88 ERA) Baltimore pitching staff. On Saturday night, Pittsburgh is anticipated to use right-handed pitcher JT Brubaker. He just had a dreadful outing against Philadelphia, giving up seven runs on 12 hits in 4.1 innings.

 

It was Brubaker’s shortest appearance since June 3, and he saw his ERA increase from 3.96 to 4.40.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s previous 5 matches.
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 3-9 SU in their last 12 matches against Baltimore. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Pittsburgh’s last 5 matches on the road.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles Predictions 8/6/2022

 

In the last stretch of the first half of the year, Baltimore went on a tear and put a surprise playoff berth into play. Since the All-Star break, the Orioles were able to keep up their pace, going 8-5 in their past 13 games.

 

After losing two straight matches in Cincinnati last weekend, they bounced back by sweeping Texas earlier this week.

 

Baltimore outscored the Rangers 21-7 over the series, dominating. Prior to Friday’s games, the Orioles were only two games behind Tampa Bay for the last AL Wild Card place.

 

Being rated No. 23 in batting average this season, they were not a very strong offensive squad (.235). Cedric Mullins, a center fielder, is the team’s top hitter with 106 hits and 45 RBIs.

 

Given that the Orioles traded second-best hitter Trey Mancini at the deadline, he will need to continue producing at that level. They are taking on the No. 26-ranked (4.61 ERA) pitching staff from Pittsburgh.

 

Austin Voth, a right-handed pitcher, is named as this game’s potential starter. In his previous start against Cincinnati, he threw five innings without allowing a run. Voth equaled his season-long longest start, bringing his ERA down to 5.54.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Orioles’ last 6 matches. 
  • The Baltimore Orioles are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Baltimore’s last 8 matches against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles. The MLB pick for this game is the Baltimore Orioles. Pittsburgh does have some momentum going into this series after sweeping Milwaukee, but Baltimore is a club that is performing well for a month.

 

The fact that Pittsburgh was eliminated from the postseason and the Orioles are now leading in the playoff rankings gives them a significant advantage in motivation.

 

Before Friday’s series opener, Baltimore won eight of the previous 11 encounters between these two teams on a head-to-head basis, while Pittsburgh lost its past seven matches at Camden Yards. The Baltimore Orioles will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
