Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles 5/12/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Pittsburgh Pirates will go against the Baltimore Orioles in MLB action in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, MD, on Friday, May 12, 2023, at 7:05 PM ET.


Despite their recent 1-9 record, Pittsburgh is currently in first position in the NL Central. The Pirates only managed to score an average of 1.5 runs per game during that time, while they gave up 5.80 runs per contest.


In Steel City, April may go smoothly, but so far in May, things were awful.


Let’s start with Pittsburgh’s offensive difficulties, as their runs per game plummeted to 11th place. Pittsburgh’s collective OPS in their previous 10 games is just .566.


In those contests, they are only hitting .181 with five home runs. Even base stealing decreased. Pittsburgh is the league leader in both times caught stealing (15) and total stolen bases (48).


Nobody likes to be caught, but a large volume with a 76.2% success rate is quite fruitful. Their clip is just 60% (9-15) over the last 10 games, which isn’t nearly as profitable over a long period of time.


The majority of Pittsburgh’s offensive statistics are favorable (such as the fourth-highest walk rate), but things aren’t going well at the moment. 


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 1-9 SU in their last 10 matches.
  • The Pirates are 4-10 SU in their last 14 matches against Baltimore.
  • Pittsburgh is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles Predictions 5/12/2023


The Orioles had a fantastic opportunity to play the only club in the AL with a greater winning percentage that also happened to be in their division.


They profited, defeating the Rays two out of three times to win a critical series. Beginning with strong pitching, Baltimore limited MLB’s leading offense to six runs over the course of the three matches.


With top-five rankings in ERA, FIP, and WAR, the Orioles bullpen earned a spot on the shortlist for the best in baseball.


Yennier Cano is justifiably the buzz of the town despite Felix Bautista having the majority of saves this season due to his practically impenetrable play.


His 18.2 flawless innings in 2023 (22 strikeouts with 0 walks too) may be attributed to his sinker, which was the second-best pitch in MLB after Gerrit Cole’s fastball.


Kyle Bradish will be responsible for giving the relievers the ball with a lead. That may be more difficult to do given that he lasted 2.1 innings and gave up seven runs in his lone home start this season. 


Although they were a little quiet in their most recent series, Baltimore’s attack is among the more adaptable in the majors.


With the third-best walk rate in MLB, they rank sixth in runs scored per game. They do well  entering this series with the 3rd-most base steals. They have 42 home runs and rank 10th in doubles. 


  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of Baltimore’s last 5 matches.
  • The Baltimore Orioles are 14-6 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 12 of Baltimore’s last 17 matches against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles. The MLB pick for this game is the Baltimore Orioles. Baltimore is currently enjoying a stronger season than Pittsburgh, despite Pittsburgh’s good year.


Pittsburgh is now having difficulty both with run production and run prevention. The Pirates will find it difficult to prevail if they are unable to score runs against Baltimore’s starting pitcher in both this game and the whole series.


Even though both bullpens are strong, the Orioles’ relievers perform better. The Baltimore Orioles will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
