Yankees Have Hot Bats 

The New York Yankees are 19-10 this year and they have won four of their last six games. The Yankees are coming off of a series win against the Brewers, where they won two out of three and scored 15 runs on Saturday AND Sunday. Prior to that series, the Yankees split four games with Oakland and won two out of three against Tampa Bay. New York is currently leading the AL East, but Baltimore only trails by one game. 

The New York pitching staff has a 3.09 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .220 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 148 runs with a .253 batting average and a .341 on base percentage. Juan Soto is batting .318 with seven home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Yankees this year. New York has played very well to open this season and they are near the top of the MLB in team ERA and runs scored. 

Baltimore Looking to Get Back on Track

The Baltimore Orioles are 17-10 this season and they have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Baltimore is coming off of a series loss to Oakland at home, where they lost two out of three games. Prior to that series, the Orioles won two out of three against the Angels and Royals. Baltimore is currently near the top of the AL East, battling with the Yankees for first, but they need to bounce back after that poor series against Oakland. 

The Baltimore pitching staff has a 3.87 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a .235 opponent batting average. The Orioles offense has scored 151 runs with a .257 batting average and a .314 on base percentage. Gunnar Henderson is batting .288 with five home runs and 22 RBI’s for the O’s this year. Baltimore’s offense is one of the best in the MLB so far this year, but their pitching staff has had a couple of bumps in the road over the last five games. 

Starting Pitchers 

The projected starting pitcher for Baltimore is Grayson Rodriguez, who is 3-1 with a 4.45 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP over 28.1 innings pitched this year. Rodriguez has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his five starts, but he did allow seven earned runs in his last start to the Angels. The projected starting pitcher for New York is Clarke Schmidt, who is 2-0 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP over 25.1 innings pitched this year. Schmidt has allowed three earned runs or fewer in all five starts this season, but he has yet to go longer than 5.1 innings.

New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

The Yankees come into this series after scoring 30 runs in their last two games and they will face Grayson Rodriguez, who was just shelled by the Angels. New York is also a very good road team so far this year, so the Orioles will have their work cut out for them. Baltimore is coming off of a disappointing series loss at home to Oakland and they need to bounce back. I think both teams can hit the cover off of the ball, but I give the pitching advantage to New York. My New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction is a Yankees win in game one.
