MLB FREE PICK: Take Baltimore. According to latest MLB trends, Texas is 10-23 last 33 as a road dog of +110 to +150. Baltimore is 5-0 last 5 home games vs. a right-handed starter, 14-5 last 19 home games with the total set at 9.0 -10.5 and 7-0 in Gonzalez's last 7 home starts with the total set of 9.0 - 10.5.
Texas (53-38, 26-19 road, 35-52 O/U) has won three of their last four. Baltimore (50 42, 26-19 home, 43-44 O/U) is looking to even the series at 2-2 with a win at home. The Orioles caught a break when Rangers' ace Yu Darvish had to go on the disabled list with a minor back injury. That means Texas will send out spot-starter Ross Wolf (1-1, 1.95 ERA) against Miguel Gonzalez (6-3, 3.63 ERA). Wolf has good numbers but they were as a reliever as he's making his second-career start. Gonzalez is 4-0 with a 4.14 ERA in seven home starts this year and is 7-0 at home going back to July 25 of 2012. He is coming off a road loss (3-2) to the Yankees on July 5, but pitched well in six innings. The Orioles are led by 21-year old third baseman Manny Machado, who leads the majors with 39 doubles and has 14 three-hit games. The Rangers meet the Orioles on Thursday night at 7:10pmET from Camden Yards.
