The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning four of their last six games. The Yankees have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. The Yankees have won five of their last seven games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Jacoby Ellsbury leads New York with 39 hits and four RBI while Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez have combined for 39 RBI. The New York Yankees have won five of their last seven games on their home field. Nathan Eovaldi takes the hill, and he’s 2-0 with a 3.81 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Eovaldi’s second career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 1-7 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 14-5 in Tillmans last 19 starts. The Yankees are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 9-2 in their last 11 vs. American League East. The Orioles are 13-5 in the last 18 meetings.
The Orioles simply can't win on the road, as they've lost six straight. I'll take the red hot Yanks for the cheap price.
