Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles Match Preview and Free Picks
The Boston Red Sox will have a decided advantage on the mound in their quest to finish off a three-game sweep at the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday. Star lefty Chris Sale, who limited the Orioles to two hits while striking out eight in five innings earlier in the year, goes for the Red Sox as they aim for an eighth consecutive victory at Camden Yards.
Baltimore originally planned to start veteran Andrew Cashner but he was placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's game with back soreness, forcing the club to turn to Yefry Ramirez for his major-league debut opposite Sale. Andrew Benintendi homered and forced in a run with a walk to help Boston pick up a 6-4 victory Tuesday night, giving the club a 23-11 record both at home and on the road.
Mookie Betts, the top vote-getter in current All-Star balloting, returned from an abdominal strain in the series opener before sitting out the second game, but is expected to return for this one. The Orioles got Manny Machado back Tuesday from a one-game absence but they left 13 runners on base while losing a sixth consecutive game.

Red Sox LH Chris Sale (5-4, 2.83 ERA): Sale has lost three straight starts but he was solid in the most recent one, tossing eight innings of one-run ball while striking out 10 in a 1-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox. He has a 2.68 ERA in eight road starts while limiting opponents to a .188 average.

He is 38-30 with a 3.55 mark in seven seasons in the minors, going 15-3 at the Double-A level last year while splitting the season between the New York Yankees and Baltimore systems.
