The New York Yankees look to keep rolling after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Yankees have won 13 straight when scoring more than three runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 134 hits and 58 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 103 RBI.

Sabathia is 18-7 with a 3.48 ERA and 168 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 2-6 in Jimenezs last 8 road starts. The Yankees are 22-6 in their last 28 during game 3 of a series and 60-28 in Sabathias last 88 home starts. The Yankees are 7-1 in Sabathias last 8 home starts vs. Orioles.
Sabathia has owned the O's throughout his career at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees can't afford to lose a series against a slumping O's team that has their eyes set on the offseason. Give me New York to win this series.
