The Yankees are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Sabathias last 5 Wednesday starts. The Orioles are 8-1 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 4-0 in Wilsons last 4 starts. The Yankees are 0-4 in Sabathias last 4 starts vs. Orioles.
Sabathia hasn't been himself in quite some time, and the Yankees are impossible to trust with their offense stinking up the joint night in and night out. You have to like the O's at home until New York starts to put runs on the board.
