Orioles Preview

The Baltimore Orioles are 4-3 this season and have won three of their last four games. Baltimore won Game 1 of this series by a score of 7-6 on Friday. The Baltimore pitching staff has a 5.49 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a .261 opponent batting average.

Trends

New York is 3-7 in their last 10 Saturday games and 11-4 in their lat 15 games against the AL East. The over is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 Saturday games. Baltimore is 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 6-0 in Baltimore’s last 6 Saturday games. New York is 46-19 in these two teams last 65 head to head meetings. 

Pick

These teams played an exciting game on Friday, with Baltimore winning by a score of 7-6. The Yankees are starting Jhony Brito, who pitched very well in his first start. The Orioles are turning to Cole Irvin, who allowed six runs over 4.0 innings against the Red Sox in his first outing. I think the Yankees are going to get to Irvin early and often in this game and as long as Brito is just average, the Yankees should be able to get it done. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
