The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees face off on Thursday in an American League East showdown at Yankee Stadium. The Orioles have won the last three games against the Yankees.
The Baltimore Orioles lost by a run on Wednesday, but this is a team that was having a whole lot of success winning four games in a row before that. In the previous three wins the Orioles had given up only four runs total. In the last win the Orioles offense was really good putting up 11 runs. Anthony Slander has been the best player all season for the Orioles hitting 11 home runs and driving in 32 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the New York Yankees who are coming off a win, but they are dealing with all kinds of issues. Before their win on Wednesday, the Yankees had lost five games in a row, and the offense has been an issue.In three of the last four losses the Yankees have scored only one run. On Wednesday, the Yankees offense was strong putting up seven runs led by Gleyber Torres who drove in four RBI’s.
The Orioles are 14-37 in their last 51 games played on Thursday.The Orioles are 125-263 in their last 388 games overall. The Yankees are 68-26 in their last 94 home games. The over is 50-12-1 in the last 63 meetings between the Yankees and Orioles. The Orioles are 14-40 in their last 54 meetings against the Yankees.
Keegan Akin will get the start for the Orioles and he has pitched 13 innings so far this year sitting with a 2.08 ERA.
Gerritt Cole will get the start for the Yankees and coming into this game he sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 3.63. In Cole’s last start against the Orioles he gave up five runs and even though one was earned he had issues getting out of jams.
Cole struggled in his last start against the Orioles and it will happen again in this game. Look for the Orioles to find offensive success against Cole and that will lead to the visiting team coming away with a victory.
