The right-hander had obvious problems in his last two starts, allowing 13 hits and 12 runs (eleven earned) over 9 2/3 innings against Minnesota on July 7 (3-8) and against the New York Yankees last Wednesday (3-4).
However, it should be noted, that those two games were away from home, while he pitched well in his previous start at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, allowing just 4 hits over 6 1/3 scoreless innings of a 0-2 loss against Texas on July 2, with seven strikeouts.
Gausman has posted a 2.43 ERA in his last five home starts.
The Braves, who were limited to three or fewer runs in each of their last four games, will send to the mound Alex Wood (7-6 with a 3.78 ERA).
The left-hander surrendered three or more earned runs in three of his previous four starts in July, including 6 hits and 3 runs, while walking four over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3 win against the Dodgers on July 21.
The Orioles were limited to three or fewer runs in seven of their last ten games (4-6), but scored 10 runs on 17 hits in the last two.
I think that Baltimore will win the opening game of this series with more than one run difference.
