The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles play game two of a doubleheader Saturday.
The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Yankees have won five of their last seven when scoring more than three runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 150 hits and 62 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 119 RBI. The New York Yankees have split their last eight road games. Luis Severino gets the nod, and he’s 5-3 with a 2.77 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. This is Severino’s first career game against the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Orioles have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Orioles have won five straight when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 178 hits and 82 RBI while Adam Jones and Chris Davis have combined for 194 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have won six of their last 10 home games. Ubaldo Jimenez takes the hill, and he’s 12-10 with a 4.10 ERA and 161 strikeouts this season. Jimenez is 4-5 with a 6.23 ERA and 48 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. American League East and 5-2 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Orioles are 8-0 in their last 8 second games of a double-header and 14-2 in Jimenezs last 16 home starts. The Yankees are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings overall.
The O's have won eight straight on the backend of a doubleheader, and Jimenez has been pretty much automatic when pitching at Camden Yards. With the Yanks already clinched, I like Baltimore to get the job done against an uninterested New York team.
