Why you should back the Orioles

Baltimore has offensive strengths to note in this matchup. The Orioles currently rank in the top five of the American League with 138 doubles, and also has 11 triples. Team speed is a strength for Baltimore, as evidenced by a top-five mark in the league in stolen bases, and the Orioles are facing a Twins team that ranks dead-last in the American League in wins above replacement from its bullpen. 

On the pitching side, Orioles starter Jordan Lyles has limited opponents to a .621 OPS in his last two outings, and Baltimore’s bullpen has a tremendous profile in 2022. The Orioles lead the AL in WAR from relievers, and Baltimore’s relief corps has a 3.20 ERA. Baltimore’s relievers also sport a 48.2 percent ground ball rate that ranks No. 2 in the American League, with the Orioles giving up only 3.09 walks and 0.73 home runs per nine innings with relief pitchers on the mound.

Why you should back the Twins

Minnesota has the starting pitching advantage on Saturday with Sonny Gray. Gray, who is a two-time All-Star, is on track for one of the best seasons of his career, posting a 2.17 ERA to this point in the 2022 campaign. He is averaging more than four times as many strikeouts as walks with a WHIP under 1.00 this season. Gray has been even better lately, posting a 1.66 ERA over the last two months, and opponents are producing only a .564 OPS against him. Baltimore is below-average offensively, including middling marks in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and runs scored, and Gray should be able to find success at home. 

The Twins also bring a high-powered offense to the table, ranking in the top five of the American League in runs scored, total bases, hits, doubles, home runs, walks, batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage in 2022.
