The Baltimore Orioles look to extend their lead in the East with a win at the New York Yankees on Tuesday.
The Baltimore Orioles might lead the American League East but Boston and Toronto are breathing down their necks. The Orioles offense was nowhere to be found Monday in a 2-1 defeat at New York which also squandered a strong effort on the mound. O’s starter Kevin Gausman gave up both runs on six hits over 6.2 frames to absorb the loss. The Birds were held to five hits and five walks with Jonathan Schoop smacking his 16th homer. The Orioles are bringing Vance Worley out of the pen to face the Yankees Tuesday. Worley has 20 appearances including two starts and has gone 2-0 with a 2.87 ERA in 47 innings.

The rumors are the New York Yankees might make a move before the trade deadline but nothing is etched in stone. The Yankees have now won back to back contests following Monday’s stellar performance on the mound. Yanks starter Ivan Nova gave up the lone run on four hits and a trio of BB through six innings to pick up the win. The NYY managed seven hits and a pair of bases on balls with Alex Rodriguez going deep while Brian McCann knocked in Brett Gardner. The Yankees are scheduled to send Nathan Eovaldi to the bump to oppose Baltimore for the second time this year. Eovaldi has struggled the last three times out with an o-3 record and 8.62 ERA.
The Yankees are 5-11 in their last 16 Tuesday games and the under is 9-4 in Eovaldi’s last 13 home starts. Baltimore are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings and are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in New York. I personally wouldn’t put a penny on either hurler…
