Why you should back the Orioles

Baltimore is expected to send left-hander Cole Irvin (4-2, 3.15 ERA) to the mound and he’ll be backed by a lineup that ranks second in the majors in slugging percentage. Third baseman Jordan Westburg has been heating up of late. In Saturday’s 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox, he was 3-for-4 with a homer. In 49 games this season, he is hitting .284 with 10 doubles, three triples, eight homers, 31 RBI and 27 runs scored. In eight career games against Boston, he is batting .350 with three doubles, two homers and four RBI.

Another offensive weapon for the Orioles is first baseman Ryan Mountcastle. The former first-round draft pick from 2015 is on a five-game hitting streak. In Thursday’s 8-6 win over the White Sox, Mountcastle was 4-for-5 with a double. He was 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday’s 4-1 win. In 46 games this season, he is batting .271 with 14 doubles, one triple, six homers, 19 RBI and 26 runs scored. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back the Red Sox

Right-hander Cooper Criswell (2-1, 2.86 ERA) will start for Boston. In eight games, including seven starts, Criswell has walked eight batters, while striking out 34 in 34.2 innings. He will be looking for his first decision since defeating San Francisco 4-0 on April 30. In that game, he pitched five innings, allowing two hits and one walk, while striking out four. In his last outing, a 5-2 win at Tampa Bay, he received a no-decision despite pitching 5.1 innings, allowing six hits, two earned runs and one walk, while striking out six.

Third baseman Rafael Devers continues to be one of Boston’s top hitters. In Saturday’s 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he was 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. He has hits in seven of his past 10 games, including two multi-hit games. He was 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored in a 7-5 loss to Tampa Bay on May 16. In 42 games this season, he is hitting .272 with 11 doubles, 10 homers, 24 RBI and 27 runs scored. See which team to pick here.
