The Line: Baltimore Orioles / New York Yankees --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles begin a three-game series Tuesday night.
The New York Yankees need a road win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Yankees pitching staff has an ERA of 4.79 and has allowed 20 runs in their last three games. The New York Yankees have allowed eight or more runs in four of their last seven games and have lost 10 straight when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Starlin Castro leads New York with 27 hits, Mark Teixeira has 11 RBI and Carlos Beltran has four home runs. Luis Severino gets the nod, and he’s 0-3 with a 6.86 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. This will be Severino’s second career game against the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles could also use a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Orioles have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in three of their last eight games. The Baltimore Orioles have an ERA of 3.77 and have lost six straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 35 hits, Mark Trumbo has 19 RBI and Chris Davis has seven home runs. Chris Tillman takes the hill, and he’s 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Tillman is 6-6 with a 4.96 ERA and 64 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 1 of a series and 0-5 in Severinos last 5 starts. The Orioles are 8-2 in their last 10 games following an off day and 5-1 in Tillmans last 6 starts. The Orioles are 8-3 in Tillmans last 11 starts vs. Yankees.
Both teams are in a funk right now, but the Orioles are a little easier to trust on their home field. Also, I have more faith in Tillman than I do Severino on the road. Give me Baltimore.
