On Tuesday, the Oakland Athletics play the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a three-game series at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. First pitch is set at 7:05PM ET.
Baltimore won Monday's 1st game after hitting 4 homeruns for a 7-3 victory. They are just 3 ½ games behind for the American League's 2nd wild-card spot. The Orioles hope to show power anew in the 2nd game with pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound.
The Oakland Athletics is too far to compete in the playoffs with a 54-71 record. They are in last place in the West Division but could act as spoiler for teams contending for a playoff spot. Oakland will let rookie Paul Blackburn pitch in this game. He's 3-1 with 3.46 ERA and has pitch well since being recalled in Triple-A Nashville last July 1.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Baltimore Orioles as the favorites to beat the Oakland Athletics in the 2nd game of a three-game series on Tuesday night.
