The MLB is set up with another strong slate of action throughout June 25. Fifteen games are up on the board throughout Saturday. One of these games will be between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox. These two teams have been struggled a bit on the season, but will look for a big win in this one. This game will throw the first pitch at around 2:10 PM Eastern time.
Baltimore has earned a record of 33-39 throughout this season, which has them sitting in last place of the AL East. The Orioles have won three games in a row and are 7-3 in their last ten games. Baltimore is six games back on a wild card spot with this recent stretch. The Orioles will look for a big win on the road in this one.
The White Sox have put up a record of 33-36 so far on the season, which has them in third place of the AL Central. Chicago has lost three games in a row entering this matchup. The White Sox are four and a half games back on the top seed in the division. Chicago will look to bounce back with a win at home on Saturday afternoon.
These two teams have struggled on the season, but will look to get on track with a big win in this one. The Orioles have been strong as of late and will look to remain hot. Chicago has struggled in their last stretch of games and will look to get back on track. If either team can come out fast, it could be enough for the win.

The Orioles have been struggling a bit hitting the ball on the season. Baltimore has a batting average of .230, which is 26th in the league. The Orioles have posted a .299 OBP, which is 24th in the MLB. Baltimore has earned an OPS of .679, which is also 24th in the league. The Orioles have hit .228 against righties on the season.
Chicago has been a bit better at the plate throughout the season. The White Sox have a .253 batting average, which is 5th in the MLB. Chicago has earned an on base percentage of .310, which is 19th in the league. The White Sox have a .689 OPS, which is 21st in the MLB. Chicago has a BA of .242 against right handers.
The White Sox have been a bit better at the plate this season and will look to bounce back in this one. Chicago has been held to one run on 10 hits in the first two games of this series. Baltimore has eight runs on 15 hits throughout these two matchups. If either team can come out strong at the plate in this one, it could be enough for the win.
Spenser Watkins will likely get the start on the mound for Baltimore in this one. Watkins has started in 8 games this season, going 0-1 in those matchups. He has posted a 6.00 ERA and a WHIP of 1.700 in those starts. Watkins last started on May 22 against the Tampa Bay Rays. He gave up three hits and three runs before leaving the game with an injury.
I expect Lance Lynn to get the nod at pitcher for the White Sox on Saturday afternoon. Lynn has earned a record of 1-0 throughout his two starts. He has put up an ERA of 5.79 and a 1.714 WHIP in those outings. Lynn’s last start was against the Toronto Blue Jays. He gave up four hits and three earned runs in the win.
These two pitchers have been solid throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. The Orioles have the edge in the bullpen in this game. Baltimore’s relievers have a combined ERA of 3.08, which is 6th in the league. Chicago’s bullpen has a 4.26 ERA, which is 21st in the MLB this season.
These two teams have been struggling throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. Baltimore has been the better team in the last two games, but I think that the White Sox will come out faster in this one. Lynn will look to continue to improve after returning from injury. If Chicago can get the early lead, I think they can run away with this one.
Bovada has the White Sox listed as a -195 against the money line in this one. This implies that Chicago will win this game around 66.1 percent of the time. I think that this line is accurate, but does not have a lot of value. The White Sox are also listed at -1 ½ for +100. I expect Chicago to come out quickly as they try to get back on track on Saturday afternoon.
