The Rangers, for their part have been able to go a couple of games over the five hundred mark and have looked fairly decent on the season at times and have been fairly consistent as well.

The Orioles are a decent hitting team and have been able to take advantage of some weaker pitching staffs on the year. The Rangers sadly, after Jurado are fairly shallow when it comes to the bullpen and Jurado has not thrown deep into his games this year and that could spell disaster. Not to mention the Orioles are not as injured as the Rangers are in this game. Look for the Rangers to struggle against Cashner, the one pitcher the Orioles have that is good, and not really be able to do much once the game reaches the Orioles pen as the Orioles are able to win this game. Final Score Prediction, Baltimore Orioles win 5-3.
