The New York Yankees will play the Baltimore Orioles in Game 3 of their series at Camden Yards on Wednesday night.
The New York Yankees are 27-9 this season and have won eight of their last nine games. New York has won the first two games of this series by scores of 5-4 and 6-2. The New York pitching staff has a 2.76 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a .217 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 178 runs with a .246 batting average and a .327 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .315 with 14 home runs and 30 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Gerrit Cole, who is 3-0 with a 2.95 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 36.2 innings pitched this season.
The Baltimore Orioles are 14-23 this season and have lost five games in a row. Prior to this series, Baltimore lost all three games of their series with Detroit. The Baltimore pitching staff has a 3.86 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .255 opponent batting average. The Orioles offense has scored 120 runs with a .226 batting average and a .299 on base percentage this year. Anthony Santander is batting .226 with six home runs and 16 RBI’s for the Orioles this season. The projected starter for Baltimore is Jordan Lyles, who is 2-3 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 39 innings pitched this season.
New York is 10-2 in their last 12 road games and 40-16 in their last 56 games. The over is 5-2 in New York’s last 7 games. Baltimore is 4-1 in their last game 3’s of a series and 28-66 in their last 94 games. The under is 6-2 in Baltimore’s last 8 Wednesday games. New York is 40-13 in these two teams last 53 head to head meetings.
The Yankees are playing great baseball to start the year and have the best ERA of any team in baseball. Gerrit Cole takes the mound for New York and has thrown four straight quality starts. Baltimore is on a losing streak and answers with Lyles on the mound, who just gave up four runs to a bad Detroit team in his last start. I like the Yankees to win by a good margin here. I am taking -1.5, but would also look at -2.5.
