Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles 5/13/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Pittsburgh Pirates will go against the Baltimore Orioles in MLB action in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, MD, on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at 7:05 PM ET.


The Pirates lost nine of their previous ten games coming into the matchup on Friday.


They were able to hold onto the top place in the NL Central because the rest of the division is also having trouble, but going back to April and performing well will put them in the lead early.


Pittsburgh’s recent problems were primarily offensive, as they averaged 1.5 runs per game over that 10-game stretch.


Naturally, a lot of their statistics were also terrible at that time, with a .566 OPS and.181 batting average being the two worst examples. 


Even if May was a bad month, the lineup still has the full month to reflect on and learn from. Bryan Reynolds in particular, was a crucial hitter who did not hit a home run since the team’s eighth game.


The Pirates will be counting on Roansy Contreras to improve on a couple of bad outings this month on the mound. Contreras allowed nine runs in 10.1 innings of work during his two starts in May.


In his previous two appearances, he walked as many hitters as he struck out while also giving up a home run. 


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 1-10 SU in their last 11 matches.
  • The Pirates are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games with the Baltimore Orioles.
  • Pittsburgh is 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles Predictions 5/13/2023


Currently, it appears like it’s a lot of fun to support the Orioles. The organization is embracing every aspect of the team’s fandom, including its youth and success.


Baltimore ranks sixth in runs per game, so let’s start with the offense. The Orioles are comparable to the Pirates in that they both frequently reach base (6th in OBP and third in walk rate) and steal a lot of bases (3rd).


Due to their superior slugging percentage and lower strikeout rate, which make them routinely difficult outs, Baltimore has Pittsburgh beat.


The Orioles’ offense struggled in the five matches before this series, scoring just 2.4 runs per contest on average. 


Pitching was not as effective; the team’s ERA entered the weekend ranked 16th. But Tyler Wells, who consistently performed well in the rotation, will hear his name called for this contest.


In his most recent start against Atlanta, he just allowed one run across 5.0 innings, with a single home run causing the damage.


This year, he tossed 18.2 innings and gave up only six runs on 13 hits. In Camden Yards, he only had two walks compared to 18 strikeouts. 


  • The total went 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 18 matches against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Baltimore Orioles. The MLB pick for this game is the Baltimore Orioles. Baltimore gets to play against a frigid Pirates offense and has stronger pitching at home.


Their best starter is Tyler Wells, and the Orioles’ bullpen is one of the most difficult to score against anywhere. Roansy Contreras, Pittsburgh’s starter, had a shaky month of May and must contend with a bothersome lineup.


They excel at taking walks and refraining from striking out, two skills that Contreras is now finding difficult. The home team should win this match. The Baltimore Orioles will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
