The Baltimore Orioles look for another win after splitting their last six games. The Orioles have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Baltimore Orioles have won 10 of their last 14 games when scoring more than three runs. Jonathan Schoop leads the Orioles with 163 hits and 102 RBI while Adam Jones and Manny Machado have combined for 297 hits and 157 RBI. Kevin Gausman gets the ball, and he is 10-9 with a 4.79 ERA and 148 strikeouts this season. Gausman is 7-4 with a 3.18 ERA and 81 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League East, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Orioles are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record, 5-2 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter and 16-7 in Gausmans last 23 home starts. The Orioles are 7-0 in Gausmans last 7 home starts vs. Yankees, 8-3 in Gausmans last 11 starts vs. Yankees and the over is 14-2 in the last 16 meetings.
The Orioles have been hot offensively as of late and got an extra boost of confidence Tuesday with a walkoff win. We all know what Gray brings to the table, and he's been solid since coming to New York, but Gausman hasn't allowed a run in his last 13.2 innings and has had great success against the Yankees throughout his career. I'm going to side with Baltimore to get another home victory.
