The Orioles might sweep! They probably won’t, but they might!

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Baltimore Orioles
That’s cleanup hitter Chance Sisco

The Orioles and their fans are feeling good after two straight 13-0 wins over the Cleveland Indians. Can they make it three straight 13-0 wins? I’m going to say no. But they can get a sweep with a win today, and the way they’ve been playing I might believe they can do it!

Standing in their way is Shane Bieber, who faced the Orioles earlier this year and pitched a shutout with 15 strikeouts. Hm. Well now that they’ve seen him they can make adjustments!

Gabriel Ynoa is starting for the Orioles and if he wants to hold on to his rotation spot he needs to improve quickly. That’s pretty sad for him since the Orioles are basically giving rotation spots to anyone these days.
