This is a 1* Free Play on the Baltimore Orioles.

I like the Orioles to earn a home sweep here over the Twins. Minnesota turns to Phil Hughes (14-9, 3.70 ERA), who allowed four runs to Kansas City in a 6-1 road loss that ended his four-start winning streak last week; note that the right-hander is only 2-2 with a pedestrian 5.88 ERA in seven career starts at Camden Yards. Baltimore counters with Kevin Gausman (7-6, 3.84 ERA) who will be looking to bounce back from his shortest outing of the year after giving up three runs over four innings in a 3-1 home loss to Tampa Bay; note though that the right-hander hasn't allowed more than three runs in nine of his last 10 starts, going 4-4 with a respectable 3.83 ERA in the process. Gausman has to be liking his chances here, note that the Orioles have averaged 7.3 runs while hitting .328 during a four-game winning streak to increase their division lead to nine games over the Yankees. Baltimore is also 6-2 versus the Twins in Camden Yards the last three seasons. Conversely, the Twins come in struggling having lost eight of nine overall. I think Gausman is worth the price of admission here, how about you?
