The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles meet Saturday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Yankees have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 41 hits and 12 RBI while Luke Voit and Gio Urshela have combined for 63 hits and 51 RBI. Gerrit Cole gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.91 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Cole is 1-0 with a 2.29 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Orioles have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Orioles have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 46 hits and 14 RBI while Anthony Santander and Renato Nunez have combined for 78 hits and 55 RBI. Keegan Akin gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.52 ERA and seven strikeouts this season. This will be Akin’s first career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 36-15 in their last 51 during game 3 of a series, 53-23 in their last 76 Saturday games and 4-10 in their last 14 overall. The Orioles are 23-48 in their last 71 Saturday games, 34-73 in their last 107 during game 3 of a series and 121-262 in their last 383 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Yankees last 6 road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Orioles last 6 Saturday games. The Yankees are 23-4 in the last 27 meetings in Baltimore.
Gerrit Cole has allowed 16 runs and 34 hits in his last 34.1 innings while Keegan Akin has allowed three earned runs and five hits in 7.2 innings this season. The Yankees have lost each of Cole's last three starts, as he's been roughed up a bit lately, but I'm still not looking in any other direction in this contest. The Orioles have returned back to earth these last two weeks, and Cole is due for a bounce back performance.
Give me the Yanks and the RL for max value.
