The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Yankees have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Yankees have won 14 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jacoby Ellsbury leads New York with 42 hits and four RBI while Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez have combined for 44 RBI. The New York Yankees have won five of their last seven games on their home field. Michael Pineda takes the hill, and he’s 4-0 with a 2.97 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. Pineda is 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 4 of a series and 12-5 in Norris' last 17 starts. The Yankees are 51-21 in their last 72 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in Pinedas last 5 home starts. The Orioles are 5-0 in Norris' last 5 starts vs. Yankees.
Maybe Saturday's victory was a sign of the O's turning things around on the road. Either way, I like the value of Baltimore and the plus money in this spot with a veteran pitcher on the mound.
