Yankees look to continue Baltimore dominance on Monday
The Yankees have straight up owned the Orioles this season. With a combination of great pitching and strong bats, New York has simply overpowered Baltimore whenever the two teams have faced off.
On Monday, they'll meet in a doubleheader in the Bronx. In the afternoon game, we fully expect the Yankees to start the series off with a bang and capture the win.
New York will have a quick turnaround following their four-game series with Toronto, which wrapped up on Sunday, but that won't be enough to stop them from coming away with a win in Game 1 of the series against Baltimore.
Tigers and Mariners ready to meet on Tuesday
Though they might be two of the worst teams in the bigs, the Seattle Mariners and Detroit Tigers will open their series on Tuesday in Detroit.
It might not be the sexiest of games, but both will look to end their fans' misery and get a victory.
After a strong start to the year, Seattle has been downright terrible, with its starting pitching being a joke. This is good news for the Tigers, who should be able to take full advantage of the poor pitching and earn a home win.

Astros ready to stay hot against the White Sox
The Astros once again have been one of the top teams in Major League Baseball this season. On Wednesday, they'll take on the White Sox for the final contest of a three-game set.
While Houston's starting pitcher is yet to be named, the White Sox will send lefty Ross Detwiler to the mound. Detwiler has struggled this year, going 1-3 with a 5.35 ERA.
With the Astros power throughout the lineup, they should give him even more problems on the way to a victory.
Will the Cubs hang on to win the NL Central?
One of the more intriguing battles in the bigs this year has been the NL Central. It's been a race between the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals.
But, who will end up coming out on top and capturing the division crown? Right now, the Cubs hold a slim lead and according to Sports Interaction, they've got 1.52 odds to take home the title.
While the Brewers and Cardinals both have what it takes to win the NL Central, we're going with the Cubs because of stars like Anthony Rizzo, Javy Baez, Willson Contreras and others.
