The Baltimore Orioles returned from an 0-10 road trip on Monday and threatened to post their first win since May 16 before falling against the Minnesota Twins in 10 innings. Baltimore finally ended its losing streak at 14 games, as it posted a 7-4 victory the following day. The Orioles hope to record consecutive wins for the first time since a three-game run from April 29-May 1 when they host the Twins in the rubber match of their three-game series on Wednesday. Should you expect Baltimore to improve upon the worst home record in the majors (7-19), or is there value in the Twins to make it five wins in six meetings this year?

Top MLB picks for Wednesday, June 2
The model likes the Los Angeles Dodgers at -219 on the money line against the St. Louis Cardinals. Los Angeles is due to break out of its slump at home, where it is 18-10 but has lost four of its last five contests. The team has the perfect pitcher for which to end its struggles in Walker Buehler (3-0, 2.66 ERA), who has performed exceptionally well at Dodger Stadium in recent years. Since the beginning of the 2019 season, the 26-year-old has gone 9-1 while posting a 2.62 ERA in 24 home starts.
Buehler enters Wednesday having allowed just two earned runs over 20 innings in his previous three outings. He also has enjoyed considerable success against St. Louis' top offensive players during his career. Nolan Arenado, who leads the Cardinals with 35 RBIs, is just 5-for-29 against Buehler, Paul Goldschmidt has gone 2-for-9 versus the right-hander and Yadier Molina is hitless in five at-bats.
