The Wolf is back for more MLB action and Wednesday’s baseball action is highlighted by Kershaw and Verlander on the mound. As a result The Wolf has provided us with a deep dive into two of the best pitchers on the planet!
Baltimore Orioles at Houston Astros (10:10am)
The Astros easily beat the Orioles in game 1 of this series 6-1 and the Wolf is predicting a similar result in game 2. Ace Justin Verlander is headed to the mound and he’s coming off a 6 inning, 4 hit outing against the Rangers. The Orioles have struggled at the plate this season so the Wolf can see Verlander going 6+ innings in this matchup. Baltimore has scored just 5 runs in 4 games and their highest game total is 2 runs. Also in their last two games, they’ve scored just 1 total run. Mike Wright is making his first for the Orioles since 2016 as he was used out of the bullpen last year. He has a career ERA of 5.86 so the Astros lineup will likely be too tough. The Astros already have a 4-1 record this season and they’ve covered the line in all 4 victories. With Verlander on the mound, the Wolf is confident the Astros can win this by 2 or more runs once again.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona D-backs (11:40am)
In game 2 of this series, the Dodgers are the overwhelming favourite with Clayton Kershaw on the mound. He took a tough loss in his first start of the season as he pitched 6 innings against the Giants. He got no help from the Dodgers offence as they lost 1-0. But the Dodgers batting lineup seems to be back in form after scoring 20+ runs in their last 3 games. So Zach Godley will be looking to contain the Dodgers in game 2 for the D-Backs. He’s making his first start of the season and he’s coming off a decent season. He recorded a 3.37 ERA from 25 starts and had 3 decent starts against the Dodgers. But the Wolf just likes the form of the Dodgers at the moment and with Kershaw on the mound, they’re hard to stop. So he’ll be backing them to win by 2 or more runs.
